After taking a huge bag to the dump, six bags to the charity shop and having filled my recycling box with old magazines, I've still not finished clearing up my studio. There will be photos when I've done but today I needed a break from the clearing and cleaning.
Having cleared a path to my sewing machine I transformed a couple of old embroidered tray cloths into a pair of tea cosies.
Adding a little free machine embroidery to complement the hand stitching.
A pretty addition to the one I made last week.
And I'm pleased that I hadn't cleared out these old embroideries but instead have given them a new lease of life.
And while I was in the mood I made half a dozen cards too...
After all, not much point in having a clean and tidy studio for Open Studios if I haven't got anything to sell!
Now I must dash... I'm typing this with half an eye on the football "Come on England".
