Tuesday challenge: Repurpose something you have made. I am not short of things I have made. I am unable to sit down in the evening and not have something to fiddle with. Mostly I stick to knitting and crochet in the evenings, but handstitching, embroidery, tapestry all have their moments depending on my mood.
I got into free form knitting earlier this year (see here) The wall hanging still has pride of place on our newly painted walls but the cushion cover didn’t make the post redecoration cut. I still love it but it doesn’t go with the room and I couldn’t bring myself to put it in the charity bag not least because it is an acquired taste and I wasn’t sure it would find somebody who loved it like I did!
Recently two of our (five) cats have died. They were old and each had a good life so I am not sad but I did have to get rid of one of the cat beds. As she came to the end of her life Morley only left it to use the litter tray (which had to be placed by her bed) and to eat. It was pretty horrid by the time she died and even a boil wash didn’t make it attractive to the three remaining felines.
So Tah Dah! A new cat bed. And as everyone, feline and canine has just been dewormed and defleaed I am hoping it stays bright and clean for a while!
