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.
The ric rac is perfect...love the flower.
Love your blogpost title :o) ... just 2 lovely words :o).
That ric rac is just perfect for your tea towel!! I have a couple of old cards of ric rac too, don't you just love 'finds' like that :o)!
The green ric-rac just finishes off the teatowel nicely. It's great to use up the bits and bobs you have in your (and mum's) stash. Glad to see you had a nice drop of rain.
