Easter Hols

I am determined to get a few jobs done over the Easter break, so I've started some prep. Last weekend I dug a hole in the crap in the spare room, the one without a bed in it. A couple of evenings this week have been spent sorting out summer skirts I can no longer wear & by this morning I had this.


 An hours ironing & I have this




A nice assortment, but not much of it goes together, I'll have to have a think, I'm reluctant to spend any money, so I'll need to see what else I can find.

Can you not make a simple skirt in one fabric, then bind it with homemade binding from one of the others? You have lots of blue/white stuff there, and it is surprising what a difference a bit of contrast trim makes! I fully understand your reluctance to spend - but buying a binding maker has saved me a fortune over the years, a good investment!

Hi Angela, I can't wear skirts of any sort, only dresses, I'm making a couple of dresses from some other fabric

Hi Froogs, there is loads of fabric there, I'm just not sure enough of it goes together. I have a double bed sized piece of batting & some old sheets for backing. It's the colours that I'm stuck on, I don't think the navy with pink/red flowers goes with the brown sparkly fabric or the grey & purple. I'll have another delve through my stash today to see what else I can find.

Another bone of contention

This time about the parking spaces. There are enough for everybody but some people think they are entitled to park at the end of the jetty ...
