MY MUM AND DAD...

... have drawers in their divan bed ... so what you say? WELL one of those drawers has NOT been opened for ...we think... about 4 years!!!

SO... mum decided it had to be opened and investigated, now, this sounds easy... BUT it involves the movement of other furniture and a LOT of pulling .... see.. NOT such a simple undertaking xx

The job has been done , the drawer has been SORTED .. and I have come home with...


I am sure I will be able to find a use for these lovely threads x.. 

 

this fabric is cotton sheeting ... soooo soft xx


I also came home with this..


I made this for an exam at school when I was about 13 or 14..


I thought it had long since been lost, it was tucked away in a bag at the back of the drawer xx I am SOOOOO happy to have it found. NOW I have to decide what to do...leave it as it is or use it in a new project? mm have to consider x


Keep smiling

Great work there.

Wasn't it wonderful when our eyes could see so clearly!

This must be the week for digging out stored stuff. I wish my finds were as useful but photos did bring back the same kind of memories.
