February through the Window 2!
I seem to be having a window theme this month!
It's been great this week that the temperature has risen so much that the snow has cleared and we drove out at the weekend to do a food shop. On the way home we stopped to take a look at a ruin that OH had had previously spotted that was having some work done on it. He hadn't told me it was up quite a steep hill though! The Woodland Trust had taken it over and built a framework within the remaining three walls of what looked like an old cottage and just put a roof over it. It was open to the elements still but they have put in a couple of barbecues so it could be used as an entertainment area. Different use of a building I thought and in the summer it will be nice for the walkers. Look at the lovely view through this little window. I like that someone has put the twigs in to divide it into panes.
Changing the subject entirely look at all these lovely yummy bits of fabric I have acquired this week!
Each pile of fabric was being sold off for £4 a pack so what a bargain! There is quite a bit of vintage plus Cath Kidston prints too. My favourite piece is this
Lots of ideas on how to use it all are running through my head at the mo. I have fitted in some sewing time and finished the Highland cow cushion and the bag I had started last week.
A trip to a charity shop was successful when I spotted a M&S tartan skirt. The lady said skirts were £3 but when I told her it wouldn't be a skirt for long as I was cutting it up and it would probably be a bag, she said in that case it would be 50p!! It's not quite finished yet.
So lots of nice times happening in what has at times been quite a stressful week but that's LIFE I suppose.
