Recycle and Renew

A  new click clack couch for my extra visitors.
Sorry I haven't blogged for a while but life seems to take over sometimes. 

How to make some more space for the visitors . We had plenty this last weekend.

Opens into a double bed

Time for some sewing ............. 
Our local quilt group is undertaking a recycle challenge. So I have decided to recycle some old doilies. I think I made these doilies when I was 19 or 20. Oh so long ago!

Some fabric left over from Stitcher Dream Day Out!

All those odd buttons! Will I use them ? I am so not creative when it comes to this kind of thing.

The doilies
I even crocheted the red one as well, also long ago, my lovely mum in law taught me to crochet.

The initial stages- cut and paste !
Now to add the stitchery from the quilt groups stitchery challenge nothing like killing 2 birds with one stone !

Looking better - a tray cloth to go in my red kitchen I think!

Pretty up the corners!
I have always liked strawberries .

Some circle work!..... LOL.....

Not pressed , not finished yet but getting there !

That's an inventive challenge. Great to use the doilies when so much work has gone into them.
