Hello Dear Reader,
I have been sent old quilts and shirts and bits and bobs of fabrics, from folk who have been kind enough to re-cycle or freecycle fabric in my direction. I have also used shirts from jumble sales and charity shops. This really is a scrappy quilt. There are also smatterings of lovely fabrics bought at reduced prices from the quilting show.
It’s made of all the off cuts from the stars I have made for my daughter’s quilt. It has the same spring time colours as her quilt.
I’ve made it alongside her quilt and backed it and edged it in what ever I had.
It’s become a ‘new’ throw for my fifteen year old sofa. You may remember from a blog a while back, that this is the self same sofa that Dearly Beloved repaired the frame of. No need for new, I can brighten up my home with the odds and ends, and bits and pieces of generosity of folk who have donated to me, jumble sales or charity shops.
If you look closely, you will see your old bedding, your husband’s shirts, ‘Lawrence Lewellyn Bowen’s’ shirts? my charity shops finds and they’ve all come together to make a throw for my sofa. DFS and your perpetual sales can take a running jump, my tatty old sofa will do nicely thank you very much and my ‘new’ throw is all it needed to keep going for a few years longer.
I’ll quite happily do with less, make do and mend and keep going with what I have for years to come.
Love Froogs xxxx
