My dear friend came around today with a bootful of old sheets, table cloths, bedspreads and curtains that she cleaned out of her fathers linen press. She let me take my pick before taking the rest to Vinnies. Hubby shook his head in frustration as I already have quite a collection however I'm going to use these purely for sewing (except for the really funky pear print kitchen curtains, they're going up!). Everything's a bit shabby at the moment and I've already got alot of it soaking in the tub. There are some wonderfully bright colours and patterns that are just waiting to burst out from the surface. I think they'll be great for my new plushie tweets that I started sewing today. Very exciting!
In other news from the Burlington base I'm coming down with a cold and it ain't pretty. I'm running low on resources (tissues, vitamin C and chocolate) and I've got no gusto. I'm currently on to my 3rd cup of ginger tea and trying to muster up enough energy to prepare the topping for our pizzas (the girls are cooking tonight). Heres hoping I feel better tomorrow.
Have a great week everyone!
