I grew up in a household that repurposed all old clothes .We had rag rugs and patchwork blankets .Everything was re used .When we grow out of cotton vests I remember my mum would use them as dusters/cloths to clean, they where boiled on the stove for hours. Did your mum boil your socks for hours or was that just my mum. Can you tell she was not a knitter.
Anyway , as I was saying I really don't need any fabric but my goodness a new world has opened up to me. Jelly rolls, charm packs,fat quarters, rotary cutters , self healing cutting mats, rulers. It all mounts up .
Japan crafts .Gorgeous kimono girls, bunnies and beautiful baubles make this fabric such a delight to look at .I chose with no colour scheme in mind. I want a truly patchwork effect.
clover mini iron. I know it is just an iron, something the Mr felt he ought to point out , but it is so handy. It has its own stand and I love it and it will be invaluable when I have to iron the seams for my patchwork passion.
I bought some thread in colours I wouldn't normally consider using but I want some contrasting bolder stitching on my patchwork. I'm still cutting as we speak as I am a novice this process is slow but I am enjoying it thoroughly. Ooh, a word of advise do not have a glass of wine when cutting fabric, ha ha .
