Sewing for myself .

Back to sewing for myself this week. Having bought a lovely pair of white ,summer cotton trousers, about 2yrs ago in Ibiza ,Spain, while on holiday. I never wore them because they needed lining as they were a bit "see through",if you know what I mean, and of course my own clothes are always the last to be mended or repaired.

Last week as I was clearing out my wardrobe to give to the local charity shop, I came across an old pair of trousers which were lined in white.How lucky was that ,I changed  the lining from one pair of trousers to the other pair. Job done !

Acrylic paintings

Imagine my surprise when another of my paintings were sold this week,Tuscany Hills, sold to a lady for a wedding gift to her niece.
Must get painting again as my stock is running low.

April Showers

This is a painting of mine called "April Showers" I sold at an exhibition last week,I must say I was sad to see it go as it was one of my favourites,but the good part  is this lady  had previously bought one from me last year.
Nice to know two of my paintings are hanging in her home
