The patchwork is making great progress.
That's because it turned out a couple of other people ... Mitmot and Mary_Poppins and Little Gem wanted to make a patchwork... always more fun with more than one! So I'm progressing. I've stitched the squares into horizontal rows - thank you so much for all your encouragement and tips... and am in the process of stitching these rows together.
I had to pop out shopping and treated myself to new teatowels from Wilkos... £2 for 5 of these beauties.
Worth it for the fabric alone, and they'll cheer up the kitchen no end.
and then I happened across some lovely pillowshams...
because I popped into TK Maxx and found quilted pillowshams, which I've been after for ever such a long time. I was stunned to find how pretty the fabric underneath was (they were in a sealed pack) and that they had cute ties.
I'm thrilled with them, and they suit my collection of bed linen perfectly.
And then I was very very lucky indeed....
These are for a very special person who lives locally to me and who has given me a lot of help recently and pushed me to doing things I didn't realize I had the confidence to do. I can't wait to give them to her.
