Where is time vanishing? I can't believe where November's going. I keep meaning to blog, but have been weighed down with lots of work to keep me out of mischief.......
I feel Christmas will be upon me without much thought at this rate! Mind you, I have 2 boys who are itching for the big day already, in fact the eldest is the worst. (I'm not sure what he's hoping for!), but he reminds me frequently of the number of days left! By December, it'll be getting on my pip I'm sure of it.
I had such great intentions to make a new Christmas themed runner for the dining table, a bit of this and a bit of that but I really need to get some WIP's completed One I did manage to complete was this -
a modern version of the paper chain. Using simple knit stitch, it's a great way of using remnants of wool. Make them as long as you like and you know they'll never tear!!
Back to my title - recycling. During the summer I trotted along to the Cotswold Vintage fair which was fantastic. I purchased this lovely item -
I apologise to the ladies who made them as I can't remember who they were, but please put your hand up if it was you! The Golden Syrup tins are so iconic and turning it into a pin cushion is such a novel idea.
Having just finished the Black Treacle, I thought I might also turn the tin into a pin cushion - you can never have too many pin cushions and also a great way of recycling! The tin's are too nice to shove in the recycling box.
Lastly - has anyone been watching Turn Back Time - the High Street? Isn't it great?
Bye for now.
