Making and Swapping
I have been lucky enough to have been involved in 3 swaps and I have also won 1 fab giveaway. Its funny cause I get much more pleasure from participating from these as I would do any day shopping. I used to many years ago, love visiting shopping malls and trawling the shops, but now it fills me with dread, and I would much rather go to the local charity shops
sit at home with Mr M and Miss Sue, pottering about, reading Blogs, making and painting things...
Which brings me on to this, did any of you see on the TV this week about the Make Do and Mend campaign that ran during WW2?There was a little clip on the telly, and I managed to see a couple of things, a beautiful dressing gown made of scraps, and a babys cot made from 2 chairs back to back, with a kind of square thingy made from an old sack put over it - just brilliant!
Anyway, apparently there is an exhibition at the Imperial War Museum in London, so as I am visiting 'The City' shortly I think I may have a visit. (I do also enjoy reading about History, so it won't just be about my vintage addition!)
So here I am, early on a Saturday, writing a list about all the things I want to do..and was just wondering if there are
any more swaps coming up...
Cause I'm addicted!
