You remember my Inspiration blog? Three of the blogs I listed have something in common. Debi, Gertie and Isis started each a

Hotchpotch Day: Lace curtains and a tidy sewing room

9 comments:
Last saturday was my first Hotchpotch Day (HPD). First I made a list of all the things that can be done during HPD. For my first editon I finished sewing my curtains. I only needed to hem them and thought that would be a quick task. Was I wrong! It took me the whole afternoon. When they finally hung I realised how messy my sewing room was. Because I wanted to take pictures it seemed a good idea to tidy up my room first.
