Take one pack of co-ordinating tea towels, wash and unpick the edges,
one piece of foam,
one cheap chest (full of bird food, cat food, gardening gloves etc)
instigate some late night sewing,
and voila - one covered seat in the still relatively tidy conservatory.
With the sweet little bird cushion (a £10 purchase from Dunelm) it looks, and feels, rather a pleasant place to have breakfast or a cuppa.
Remember mum's loft? It looked like this at the end of July
well now it looks like this
it's not totally finished but it's getting there.
Amongst yesterday's discoveries was this handle and wires in a lovely wooden box.
After asking on twitter I now know the wires are ties for sacks the handle twists them together. I'm guessing it was something to do with my fenland family but I have no idea why there are so many, but you know who to ask now should you ever need to tie a sack up!
