I hate clutter and get to a point when I do not want to do another Car Boot Sale. I do not want to do anymore Ebay sales. I will go to the Charity shop and I will give away things but then I just want rid!
Sometimes when I am in this mood all my upbringing goes out of the window. My "make do and mend" philosophy goes out of the door and I was at that stage today. I looked at the cushions in the shed. To say they were past there best was an understatement. They were more shabby than chic. I threw them all on the pile for the tip. I drank a cup of coffee and then I went and got them again!
You might think I was exaggerating from this photo. Amazing what a different angle shows.
The foam had perished... maybe helped by a Field Mouse! Now I had always loved the fabric covering the cushions. It used to be more vibrant. So I decided to raid my stash and there was the perfect fabric and even better there was enough,just,for the two cushions. I was delighted.
I just folded it in half, zipped along with the machine and it was done. Amazing. I usually fall out seriously with my sewing machine but not today! Perfect!
So now all we have to do is paint the bench. A home really is like the Forth Road Bridge. But, these cushions are not going back in the shed. That poor little Field Mouse will have to find something else to line its nest!
As for the rest of the sorting. We are nearly there but not quite!I can't wait for this ugly pile to go.
