Hello Everyone I would like to introduce you to Clarice, my very special sewing machine. She belonged to a lovely lady, funnily enough she too was called Clarice, who used to live next door to me.
Clarice and I would have Most Important Conversations over the garden fence, regularly putting the world to right! Sadly Clarice began to disappear too and when she left her home I missed our Most Important Conversations.
It has been very difficult for her son to sort through his Mothers belongings so you can imagine my delight when he gave her to me, it is an honour to use her. I think she is truly beautiful, she even sings gently to me as we make things together!
I have 'dressed' her for the occasion, sadly her cover is not quite so grand...
However I have a plan....I have just brought my first pot of Mod Podge and think it should be adorned with vintage wallpaper, what do you think?
Talking of wallpaper, I dragged my very own tea trolley home from the charity shop last week, I may add in the pouring rain! I was going to fold lovely piles of fabric on it, however it is the perfect size for....
Wallpaper! It needs a makeover, but it's perfect!
Thank you all sooooo much for the lovely comments you all left about my Mum, I know many of you are also touched by this awful illness. Mum is Ok, she has remembered she loves chocolate and cuddles and she gets plenty of both! She is in a lovely care home where she is loved and we visit her everyday, and I always have a treat in my bag for her, like she used to have for me!
Busy week this week, last week of term, lots to do....still need to make teacher gifts!!! Will be back later in week with some treasures from the car boot!
