So I was especially pleased when the opportunity arose to use some of Maureen's old cotton on a 'make do and mend' project. Woollies perished not long after Maureen so these 7p cottons may well be collector's items.
Luckily I knew someone with a ripped hammock and I had some leftover curtain material (mentioned previously) of the exact size needed to make a giant patch. I also got the chance to try a new stitch on my super Janome memorycraft 4900QC (Maureen legacy too).
The end result was a bit bare so someone I know who is a good drawer and not of the furniture variety drew me a little bird and before I knew it I had PUT A BIRD ON IT.
