"happiness is not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of acheivement, in the thrill of creative effort."
This is a non-wedding post, even though the wedding is now only days away! Don't want to give away any surprises, so I thought I would share the results of a little Freecycle bounty -ten packets of curtain swatches and samples! From all of this I now have some half metre pieces of quite gorgeous suede, brocade and lace along with smaller coordinating pieces. A whole box full, just waiting for me to have a post-wedding calmer life to play with them.
I am thinking -the big pieces might make shopping bags, the suede and brocades could combine in a stunning lap quilt and the lace could be given a weighted border and become picnic throw overs (to keep insects off the food).
There has been a lot of other sorts of creativity going on in a number of places, towards the wedding. All sorts of creative people are making this happen.
If that makes for a happy start, then we should have a great day!
