Handles Discovered and Using Up All Of A Fabric Length
A quiet week here at chez Ocala Towers, after all the toing and froing of workmen, good to have the house to ourselves. A big Fall clean has taken place and the house is now sparkling, not too sure how long that will last with a fur baby and a husband.
Have been making this week though as have to keep up the good work:
Found these handles all glittery in a box, forgot all about them but had the perfect in the hoop project for 2 mini bags. The first shooting stars and the second Paris in Springtime.
Again going through my fabric stash and found a of length of cotton, had bought about 8 months ago to make myself an overtop. An overtop has been made but somehow ended up with more fabric than I needed. Think could have been a case bought online and they did not sell part metres. Anyway waste not want not.... managed to get out a child's pinafore or sundress for a 3 year old, plus some pretty budget mug rugs, some cute dolly bags and borrowing from Vicky some cute hair bows. Have a length of blue fabric the same to make up but will do that in a few weeks.
Love being able to take a length of fabric and use it all up, in the old days remember keeping all the offcuts and storing them up, when they got too much sent them to a local quilting group but now have to keep every last scrap fro applique work.

That is all for this week off to have a planning session for next week and as have started an online course to decorate cookies, need to make a shopping list of all the bits needed for my first project. Think this may get expensive, lol
