- Tidy your sock drawer. Throw away the socks that have lost their partners (or, if they are not too tatty and you are into sock puppets, get down to a bit of creativity!)
- Throw away every mis-shapen, bleach splattered and unravelled-at-the-hem t-shirt currently taking up drawer space. Or better still, cut them into a pile of dusters!
- Sort through your bras. (I am assuming a mainly female readership here...) Make a pile of the ones with the wires that poke through or baggy back elastic. They're doing you no favours. I really can't think of a way of recycling these (Double hammock for a pair of sparrows? Weapon of mass destruction?) so into the bin they must go!
- Get out your winter clothes and look forward to wrapping up against the chills, enjoying stews and dumplings and all manner of comfort food.
I have also been finishing off a couple of sewing projects.
Here's one of them.
Can you guess what it is?
My way of tidying all those wiry nuisances I can never find or identify when I need to. I had fun with stitching the labels on these pockets.
I'm putting together some instructions for making these - soon to appear in the 'Pages' section of my blog - look on the right.
I'll end with a couple of news stories that caught my attention.
Wish I taught in that school!
Has the world gone mad?
