I have sewn for as long as I can remember, including making curtains and cushions. I didn't make this pair, but as you can see, I am letting down the hem
having pressed the bottom of the curtains, I laid them out on the floor, ready to turn up a small hem .......
so that they can be hung on either side of the opening through to the garden room
we brought this couch home with us from Indonesia (it is called a Bali couch). Last week I snapped up this remnant of fabric for the absolute bargain price of £15 to recover it
this as a detail of the stitching on the fabric
do you remember that Malcolm recently recovered the dining chairs and the two tall Indonesian chairs with this beautiful black fabric?
there was some left, and turned to the wrong side will make excellent cushion covers to put on the refurbished Bali couch
when we bought this sofa bed last year, it came with rather boring cushions
but this recently purchased remnant will make very smart new cushions
I said I would tell you about The Hunk ....... some years ago, when we were in Singapore, we were strolling down Orchard Road when I saw this rather handsome young man, clad only in (very) low slung jeans, standing in a shop doorway. As I had my camera in my hand, I raised it to take a photo. He saw me, and immediately posed for the photo. Several days later, we were strolling down Orchard Road again, and Malcolm was teasing me about the handsome young man - would I perhaps talk to him if I saw him again. Well, there he was, standing in the doorway, so I trotted over and reminded him that I had taken his photos several days previously. I told him that I had put his photo on my blog, and had made a lot of ladies all round the world VERY happy!!! He asked me if I would like a photo with him - and as you can see, I said yes! He was a model for Abercrombie and Fitch, who obviously stood at the door of the shop looking gorgeous to entice shoppers in ....... and there was an young lady on stand-by with a camera to take photos!
I'll be back on Friday with photos of Malcolm's hard work in the garden!
