Recycling

I have had some old t-shirts and pyjama tops for a while so today I had a bit of a sort out and gathered a pile together. I have plenty of dusters and cleaning cloths so I thought i would try something new. I still have some of the pile to deal with but have gone from the above to this…….

The fabric will be added to my quilting stash and the yarn is going to make a basket. I was disappointed that the pink and cream did not curl up nicely so am using them for the base. I’ll be back tomorrow to show you my progress.

Hello!

me (2)

Welcome to my blog – Birds! Beads! and Blankets!

I am Sue – recently retired from a job in local government.  I live in West Sussex, just a stone’s throw from the sea, with my husband Ron.

I love crafting – lampwork (the beads) and knitting and crochet (the blankets). This blog is my way of documenting and sharing my ideas and works in progress. Who knows now that I am retired I might even get to finish some things!

The birds?  well they will appear now and then especially if the nest box is occupied again this year. As will my thoughts on anything that takes my fancy from making beeswax wrapds and reducing plastic waste to the book I am reading at the moment.

So stick with me if any of the the above appeal to you too, I’ll be back – I promise.
