Mum found some ric rac in her stash that will work for my new tea towel. I think it does the trick.
It also is Using What I Have (I think using Mum’s stuff counts – she is glad to have it used). The ric rac is donkeys years old and the only thread I had that matched is also quite old. I think this could be dated to about 1983, when my first work uniform consisted of a skirt in this colour. The colour of the thread is probably the more true colour, the other is showing a bit too blue in the photo. I wasn’t that fussed on the uniform colour, as my school uniforms all the way through school were also green.
I forgot to show a photo of the wonderful storm clouds on Saturday afternoon.
We only ended up getting 10mm of good soaking rain. A lady that lives about 2kms in the direction that this photo is looking towards got 80mm!! I’m glad we missed that. What we received was perfect.
