I did say in my last post that the Easter weather forecast was less than kind
The weathermen were true to their word and the weekend was very chilly with plenty of squally wintry showers
So inside activities were the order of the day
I'm still on a heart kick and here are two more centres, one in sand, the other in pale pastels. I have two others also done, a red and blue plaid version as a swap for Karol-Ann when she returns from her travels in exchange for some African fabric and then a green plaid version.
Nigel has been on a mission this past few weeks - my pile of fabric on my sewing surface has been breeding and lo and behold there were similar 'nests' in the conservatory, the dining room and the lounge. To be fair he's a very tolerant man - he has to be putting up with me - but these ever increasing mounds were starting to seriously depress him and so he's been on 'low-level nag mode' for a few weeks trying to encourage me to clear them.
This weekend with us all stuck inside seemed the ideal opportunity to have a sort-out.
As a reward for clearing it all up he made me a new unit for my sewing area which is just the right height for cutting and pressing
Two old kitchen cabinets and a length of work surface from the junk in the garage coupled with some extendable legs from the DIY store yesterday and VOILA!!! An excellent afternoon's work!
Now of course the problem is, all that exercise I used to get walking the length of the house from sewing machine to ironing board won't happen now as they're right next door to each other - still think of the exercise my knees will get jumping up from my chair every few seconds
He truly is a star!!!!!
