Living Life

Living life? We certainly have been doing that over the last few weeks.  Two birthday celebrations, University open day visits, a school reunion and just a little bit of Christmas preparation.

The Christmas cards are under way...

A new project to start...

This is my Mum's sewing box that she has given to me in exchange for a desk. The desk has draws in that she is going to store her cotton reels etc in and her sewing machine on top.

 I am super excited to have her sewing box.  I can't remember a time that I haven't seen it sitting in the corner of her living room. It's been part of my childhood.  As I grew up she has made many a dress or a skirt for me. Taken up trousers or altered flat sheets into fitted.  She even made my wedding dress and bridesmaids dresses.

Yes, many memories.... but I have a few plans to update it, make it my own, a storage for my latest woolly/sewing project.  it can  now sit in my living room, ready to be opened on a cold winters evening.
