It was my Mum's birthday this week. She told me she didn't want a present. She wanted me to make her a cover for a small table of hers. She told me this three days before her birthday. No hurry she said.
I had this ready made cover that she might very well have passed onto me herself at some point.
So I did a bit of this...
..and a bit of that...
...and made this.
The patches and binding are from the "silk" that my husband brought me back from a trip to Thailand. He brought me back metres and metres of it in three different colours. I think they saw him coming as it looks very silky but I haven't heart heart to tell him that is as far as it goes.
Anyway, Mum was happy which is good. I am happy because this arrived in the post today.
I actually BOUGHT myself some fabric.
