stitching, quilting, fabric, projects
It is slightly inconvenient coming across such treasure on the way out for an evening but it’s amazing how understanding and helpful everyone can be. This was discarded on top of a pile of rubbish sacks, the clock mechanism still attached but no hands. We were in between bars and there was a little bet going on as to whether I would be allowed into the next one. No problem, the bouncer very kindly offered to put this beautiful piece of ironwork “somewhere safe for a while”. Isn’t it great!
It is temporarily under glass as a table top but I have designs on upcycling it into a chandelier for the front hallway very soon.
Oh, and I thought you might like to see my thrifty and practical solution to spool, bobbin angst. When the light is not great and telling white from warm white, mid grey from slightly darker mid grey is tricky, store your spools with it’s matching bobbin using a kebab skewer or cocktail stick and a cork. I used a sharpie to label them with the relevant project too 🙂
(sorry about the shaky pic)
So hang on to your corks 🙂
