Now here is my latest 'Country' magazine inspired recycling. I saw Bonne Mamon jam were holding a competition for people to showcase their uses for the post-jam-munching jars. There were some lovely ideas; so of course I started to wash them out and keep them. We have six now but they were all still empty, until today.
Behold, the contents of the box. Yes it is indeed my sorry excuse for a sewing kit. As you can clearly see it is a shambles.
Let us examine the more unusual contents: two sea shells, one Italian leather belt loop that I no longer have the belt for, one plastic eye from a toy but I can't find nor remember which one, some matching wool and jewel button from my red cardie, a mysterious wooden knob, an assortment of metal 'bits' from Christmas crackers and last but by no means least, those silly, little packets of tiny beads and sequins you receive attached to many a sparkly top. Does anyone ever bother to sew those things on? What a waste of time and the Earth's resources they are!
