Oh yes, de-cluttering alright but not all to the charity shops & ebay, although plenty is. Tonight before bed I plan to fill a bin bag with clothing and bed linen for the Salvation Army. They have a little stall outside of their hall where they sell things. The remaining bedding will divide into quilt covers/sheets/pillow cases that we still use and those which I like but aren't really useful. They include a cot set which my children had. Still looks perfect and I am going to be a bug soppy mummy and hang onto that. There were two single quilt covers in a fresh blue check which are now languishing at my friends home waiting to be turned into thermal cooking bags, which is hard to contemplate whilst the temperature is hovering around 30c. I have plans for a single Wallace and Gromit quilt cover, 2 Ikea fleece blankets and a single purple sheet. Last summer i made a summer quilt from an old king sized quilt lined with Ikea fleece blankets and over sewn. This years will be similar. I am making a Wallace and Gromit picnic blanket. Same principle but with a nice wide purple edging.
There is also some dark orangey red bedding which goes with Jamals room. He is re=painting to aubergine in the spring but the bedding is all good and is 100% cotton so I will dye it to match. No waste around here, oh no!


  1. I am impressed by all of your recycling projects. My old sheets and blankets usually go to the dogs and they aren't very kind to them.

    1. But that is okay, its recycling too. Although you are right, pretty sure it is the end of the recycling line!


Whats going on????

As we have discussed I can still read other peoples blog, and I do, every day, they're great. But when i try to comment I can type my me...
