I kicked the week off by finishing this tote bag that I’ve made from an old tapestry, a piece of hessian, some blue gingham and a bookmark.
Yes, the flap to hold the bag closed is a fabric bookmark with a heavy button to weigh it down.
This book is fascinating.... it’s the history of where and how each colour got its name. Who knew that whitewash was used on walls as a disinfectant during a wave of flu & typhus in 1848. It was also used to obscure images and writings on walls that were thought to be offensive or untrue.
That’s how we must get the saying
“A load of old whitewash “
Went to the cinema to see “The Greatest Showman” the story of Barnum. It was fabulous, lots of great music and dancing and some very bizarre looking people.
I’m into my second year of two for one tickets via Compare the Meerkat insurance. You can buy a one day travel insurance for a couple of pounds and you’ll get a reward of cheap film tickets for a year. Go on give it a go.
See you soon
