......... so here is the (not quite finished) after. Having already sorted out my magazines, today I turned my attention to my books. I find it hard to part with books, but I was very strict with myself and ended up with a big pile to go to the charity shop. The bookshelves were looking good, with even a small space left on the top shelf
but then I went out to the garage to bring in some more stuff ...... and found more books and magazines!
I have sorted out my fabric (none of that is being given away!) and stored it all away neatly. OK, I admit it, I took the photo before all the fabric was in place!!
so here is the view from the four corners
and now for some sewing! I have finished another two stitcheries ....... so that's half of them done!!
or perhaps I should have said almost, as I ran out of brown thread and have still to embroider the tree trunks
did you notice the big project box on the table? That's my Aunts' Quilt box. Yesterday afternoon I looked out my Perfect Circles
ready to make a start to the many, many circles I need to finish the applique on the corner and setting triangles
the circles for the first triangle
the method is simple - a line of running stitch round the edge
put the circle in place and draw up the thread
a quick press, and there is the first perfect circle
this is the last you will see of the circles until next month's report!!
