Latest additions to the ever-growing soft furnishing collection: the maroon velvet cushions and a lovely bright electric blue one, again made by my mother from oddments of velvet found in my granny’s stash of fabric. Yes, yet more cushions.
Also on a textile-related front from my mother: useful zipped cloth purse or make-up bag, an unwanted/ unused gift (I have never yet in all my adult life had to buy my *own* such things, for what must, by now, be obvious reasons. (I’m still using the last one she gave me, seen at bottom of this post). I expect more to follow, having expressed thanks for this one, since my mother’s mind appears to work a bit like the Amazon algorithm: you’ve just bought one of these, so how about ANOTHER ONE?
