When out for a drive yesterday we passed the peat bogs ,they were covered in this beautiful flower It’s known here as bog cotton and many years ago housewives used to pick it and stuff mattresses and pillows with it I just had to pick some but now realise how it feels to walk on a bog especially with my legs , II was like walking on uneven sponge . I didn’t go far from the edge

Finished the bag I was given two weeks ago , thank you Sarah I enjoyed this project I completed the embroidery then cut off the handles as it was a tote bag Adding the draw string has made it more versatile , so I added a cord channel and finally lace

This is my latest fabric pouch which I made using the fat quarter I bought in January breaking my resolution to resist buying more stash 😬 I didn't need this fabric but I saw it reduced when I was buying appliqué pins and some new sewing needles , and I just loved it

I was looking for a solid sideboard and so many were MDF and flat packs , so decided to look for a second hand one Hubby was all doom and gloom saying it was risky buying one unseen . So I went ahead anyway and paid £ 150 and got this one , I have no complaints and the seller arrange a courier for me It arrived a few days ago I am pleased with my choice and it now holds all my sewing supplies , ( well nearly all ) 😆
