This old suitcase belonged to my Mum. She passed away 10 years ago. When my youngest daughter was 7 my Mum gave her the suitcase. It has stayed in my attics for 20 years.My daughter was pregnant when I did this project. My little granddaughter was born on September 25th email@example.com.Back to the suitcase. I washed and scrubbed all the years of grime away
I have my laundry basket for 14 years now. I wanted a new one, but couldn't find one that I liked or they were wayyyyy too expensive. So I decided to revamp my basket. If it turned out OK. Happy days, if not I'd continue to look.
I wanted to make a bench for my three little grandchildren. We affectionately call Kaiden and Caitlin Phil and Lil from the Rugrats. And the youngest one we call Pip. His actual name is Rian. But we call him Pip since he was born because he was tiny.
Anyway I wanted to try making a bench for them. I had a pallet in good shape.
I unfortunately have a nasty autoimmune condition. It makes my life hard quite often. I have weeks of feeling Horray!! I also have weeks of feeling bluhhh!! Tired in pain and generally really unwell. I do my happy bits like painting or knitting most days when I can. It keeps my fingers busy and my brain sane.
