The last few weeks have a bit of a struggle blogging-wise as there seems to have been limited material that I have felt like writing about and most of it did not really lend itself to adding photographs.
In the spirit of simplicity I have been working on my sewing room – finishing some projects and working through my ‘to do’ list. Yesterday I finished the last 2 tablecloths which I had set aside to alter from rectangular to oval to fit my current round dining table when it is extended. You can read my initial post about this project here.
After the success with the damask cloths I decided to do the same to a plain pink cloth and a polyester lace one that I use as an overlay. The pink one was fairly straightforward but the lace one was a little trickier.
I am now looking forward to the opportunity to use these pretty and functional items.
The only thing that remains to be done is to finish sorting and re-organising the linen cupboard which was the activity which precipitated this project in the first place. More on that one with before and after photos tomorrow.
Do you re-fashion or re-purpose linen in order to extract the maximum use from it?
