Makes, Shopping and Meggie.

 Continuing my sewing room make over I made myself a thread catcher using half of a wooden embroidery hoop, white cotton fabric and elastic to attach it to the handle of the door next to my sewing machine.
Sometimes it takes a photograph to wake you up to something that has been staring you in the face, I re sorted my wool stash, Looks so much better now.
 I knitted this headband for my son. The yarn used is called Mountain Chalet by Moda Vera bought in Spotlight. 5 1/2 mm knitting needles, 32 stitches in K2, P2 rib 42 cms long then sewed up into a loop. The colour is called charcoal.
 Yesterday my youngest son was going to Ikea to buy a grater and I went along for the ride. Whilst there I took a look at their fabric and they had this for length on display for $2.99 a meter. Unfortunately it was discontinued but they sold me the panel they had hanging up, 3 metres of it. I just have to use a quick unpick to make it useable. Fantastic for laundry bags don't you think!
 I came home to see that my other son has bought for me this lovely quilt cover for my Aussie Hero Laundry bag stuff. How lucky am I!
 Latest buys from Spotlight 1 metre of each for $5 a metre. Destination Laundry bags. All cotton drill.
 Also bought yesterday 1 metre of each at $5 a metre are these two delicious fabrics, Destination prezzies, also cotton drill fabric.
Meggie on her cat bed, new pink cover approval!
