A sewing day
Virtually the only thing I got from the car boot sale yesterday was this little - Clothkits? - retro Peacock cushion. I was full of badly degraded foam chippings, so I threw all those away and gave it a wash and this morning I have been busy with my stitch-ripper, unpicking the original fairly obvious sewing which joined it together, and the even more obvious cobbled repairs, in various shades of embroidery floss.
It's very colourful and will look lovely when I have sewn it and stuffed it with Kapoc.
Then I rather suspect my eldest daughter may pounce on it for her Retro and vintage collection . . .
Another very blustery day here. I am booked in for a healing session this afternoon, so we will see what that reveals. I am currently OFF ALL ANTI-BIOTICS!!! and stepping down off my Steroids - just 3 more days of those. I have an appointment (finally) with the Consultant on Wednesday.
