The almost ethical sewing room
The builder is coming tomorrow to finish off the sewing room so I had to get my end together today. He dropped off the notice board for me to cover. I covered it in the linen tablecloth I bought not so long ago from the Hospice shop. Boy did I cuss trying to get it perfectly ironed before attaching it. But it was to no avail: the linen was determined to stay creased no matter what steam or temperature I used on it. That's linen for you.
Tonight I will glue these old buttons to the thumbtacks to make my novelty thumbtacks. Won't it look pretty?
Then when he installs the shelves I'll pop over to Trade Aid to buy some woven baskets for storage. I have a number of glass empty jam jars I've been collecting to house smaller items and a few baskets from the Sally Army to house the threads.
So all in all, a few recycled items, a few fair trade items, and some brand new no-sanctimony-whatsoever items.
