Yesterday went by in a bit of a blur, but the laundry basket is empty and the house is decidedly clean and tidy so I must have done something.
This morning I got off to a good start and used some of the fabric I bought from Stockport to make a cushion. We currently have the cushions that came with the sofa and I just don't like them.
Just a quick and easy envelope, I would like to be able to use a sewing machine properly, put zips in and all that stuff but it's way down my priority list.
It needs plumping up properly but it look nice in the room. I have a big problem with favours, I don't believe "mates rates" really exist there's always a price to pay, and yet I have fallen into the trap.
I needed a repair to a nice Betty Barclay skirt and asked at the charity shop if we had an alterations place in the town. (Foolishly) I agreed to let a fellow volunteer repair it for me (she's very good), the thing is I said there was no rush, and now several months later i still don't have it back. Winter will be over soon and I have no idea when or if I will see this person again. Still, it's only stuff I suppose, but it does push basic clothing repairs up my to-learn list.
