I made a promise to myself at the beginning of the year.
I had looked around my stock room and decided that I would reduce my stash and declutter.
I know, I know, we all collect so much 'stuff ' that we are sure we need, mine has been collected over 15 years or so and if I live to be 200 I will probably never use it all.
So todays project involved an old blanket and some homespun scraps.
First job, cut up the blanket, it was a peachy cream colour, rather sad, I've dyed it with acid dye into shades of purple, orange and green. To mute the colours slightly I added one drop of black to each dye lot.
Each one has some applique and is stitched with a variagated cotton twist.
I need to write the instructions and make up the kits, then I'm good to go!!!!
Just think when I'm fully decluttered I can start collecting again!**!**!**! or maybe at 200 I'll retire.
