What is it they say for New Year "Out with the old and in with the New" well my Mother-in-law has certainly been doing the first part. We went down to my in-laws in Kent for the new year and MIL says" before you go I have some fabric you can take" and out comes this large carrier bag. As we were late for lunch at our next port of call I didn't have time to check it out until we got home the next day and it drove me mad. My MIL is a life long knitter and I've never known her to sew so imagine my surprise when I pulled out yards and yards of retro fabric and the "vogue" patterns she obviously bought to make it up.
The blue piece is the smallest at 4 yards the rest are 5 or 6 yards long. I have no idea what I'm going to make with it , for the moment it will go into my trunk where I keep my Yardage fabric.
Whatever I make I'm not sure it will be either of these, my shoulders are broad enough without shoulder pads.
I have also have had a clear out of a sort. My lovely old Olympus camera became temperamental on holiday and finally gave up, so the lovely Mr T gave me a new for Christmas. A beautiful bright pink Canon which I have been playing with for a couple of days to get used to it. I convinced my photos are better.
Something else I received was my first Tilda book.
I love these.
So I made my own Garden Angel and she will have pride of place on the new shelves in my work room
if Mr T ever puts them up (he has to think about these things for a few months) and before you ask, no I can't do them myself, I'm not trusted with things like power tools as I have a habit of blowing them up, apparently. I've only done that once,--or maybe twice.
