it's not what you know...

it's who.

A lovely friend dropped a heap of coffee bean sacks off this week; I'm planning outdoor seat covers, market bags and doorstops.

Watch this space...


  1. Fantastic - what a wonderful friend!

  3. Most exciting! I can't wait to see your creations! Of course, if it was me, I'd be faffing for ages wondering if I should take the scissors to them or not, and maybe they'd be best as they are, and maybe I'd cut them up.... all that nonsense - so I am delighted to read that you are of the Nike persuasion: Just Do It !!

  4. You seem to be able to say so much with so few words Jus. I jst ramble on! ;-) Looking forward to seeing your creations.

  5. Fantastic! Sarah at Beach Cottage made some containers for magazines with them, too. I've been eyeing up the French flour sacks I've seen at VGs, but haven't been prepared to take the plunge. Perhaps seeing what you do will give me the courage to try next summer!

  6. Oh, that is exciting indeed! I will be watching.

  7. You lucky girl! I can’t wait to see what you do with them. Yet again you made me laugh with your comment.
