Oh joy another morning when the world looks likes its been covered in icing sugar - last weeks spring warmth seems a distant memory. The thought of wearing sandals soon has been pushed to the back of my mind and I am firmly staying in my long stripey socks and boots for a while longer.
This is the view that greeted me yesterday morning when I peaked out the front door;
My spring flowers were hiding under a blanket of snow - by the time I got home from work last night they were uncovered but this morning they are hiding again. Hoping they are tough enough to survive all this.
I ought to show you a couple of makes from the past week - when its cold outside nothing is better than being indoors making things.
Firstly a little extra something for my Mum for Mothers Day;
Now I've found the stash of hoops I picked up in the CS, I feel another make or two coming on soon.
Secondly, sometime last year I was given a t-shirt by a sister and asked if I could turn it into a cushion. The t-shirt had shrunk in the wash but she loved the print and wanted to save it some how.
Oh the fab four - such a big part of my early childhood music listening experience.
Take one shrunken t-shirt - cut off the sleeves and neck.
Put wrong sides together and sew round three sides.
Turn right way, insert cushion pad and sew up hem - easy peasy lemon squeezy.
One t-shirt re-purposed and one happy sister.
Right I suppose I ought to get some jobs done around the house before I have to head off to work again.
See you soon
