The postman knocked this morning. And gave me a parcel. I think he is going to be busy. And there was a gorgeous shirt from Una. Thank you so much it's totally perfect.
I can squeeze a back panel out of a large shirt plus about 40 squares. Amazing. Oh! And a little extra bonus is the pile of buttons.
So, zooming along and blending the squares and my sixth cushion is complete.
Here you can see that the back panel blending beautifully and I actually like the contrast between the patchwork side and plainer.
I took my first bag of goodies into the Red Cross Shop this morning and they were delighted and very interested in the labels and the idea behind " Made with Love @1 Can Make A Difference. So, that was a lovely conversation. Now, I am just finishing off the second bag which will go to Oxfam when I go to town next. I have realised that the nearest Save the Children Charity Shop is in Totnes.
Totnes is nicknamed Narnia. Very apt. It is the most eclectic place I have ever visited. It is about 6 miles from us and one of my favourite places to visit. Yarn and material abound plus a lovely market full of paraphenalia to tempt. If ever you find yourself in the South Hams in Devon you must go.
This picture was on Facebook about Totnes yesterday and they are the only town in the Country to persuade Costa Coffee not to come even though they had planning permission granted for a new shop. It is a town so proud of the fact that it is full of independent traders and shops. A real feat in this day and age.
Before I go I would like to say a huge welcome to my new followers and thank each and every one if you for all the support you so generously give me here at Chalky's .
So that's it for Day 3 here in " Shirt Land"
