Little jobs = lots of satisfaction

They are only little bits of sewing but to my mind they equate to three more jobs off my list so three less things I still have to do.
The skirt I picked up from the op shop the other week was a size 12 which is really a tad (or more) too small unless I wanted to wear it as a corset. That was easy to fix. Simply remove the zip, cut about 3 inches off, reattach the lining and the zip and now I have a really happy skirt to wear.
Next was that long forgotten quilt top. I simply cut a piece of the corner fabric to match the over all size, sewed around it at 0ne in the morning, turned it inside-out and ironed it.
One new bed cover for those hot summer nights.
And last was the Bible cover I finally whipped up for myself out of material I found under my bed whilst seeking the backing fabric for my bed cover.
Three simple, simple jobs but so often I don't possess the push to just do even the simple tasks.
In other news I have taken the 14 days free trial on ancestry.
Lots of late night trawling, digging and even the odd skeleton in the closet being revealed.
Lots of fun.


  1. I love getting those little jobs out the way too. Love your skirt.

  2. Great idea about the skirt...I wonder if I will remember to try it.


Thankyou for your kind thoughts. I appreciate and read everyone even though at times I may not be well enough to reply. Thankyou.
