What a day!
As mentioned in the previous post, there was a “Recycling Day” held at the Youth Centre here, with Fair Trade people, Cloth Nappie promotion, swap shops, Composting people, a very nice lady making things out of old tyres and rubber, who I had intended to go and see, and have a go, but alas, I didn’t have the time, I was too busy in my own little corner, recycling old clothes.
And as usual, I forgot my camera, and it seems everyone else did too! I did have my phone, so although the pics aren’t very good, there are some.
A friend’s daughters made loads of items, including these jeans:
A bag and purse set made from an old jacket and a tee shirt:
There were dressing up clothes, dresses,
hair accessories, scarves, blankets for dolls and all sorts made…all designed by the children (obviously I gave them a few pointers and help with the iron) and it was great to see them rummaging through the clothes, checking colours, sizes, possibilities and really thinking things through.
Well done to you all!
While I was looking through websites during this post I found these which may be of interest:
I had a great surprise on Friday afternoon, I had purchased some yarn from the one and only Posh Yarns:
on Friday morning, probably around 6am, J handed the parcel to me that evening! They were hand delivered, all the way from Bosherston. To get anything in the same week is pretty good going for Pembrokeshire.
Thank you so much Dee, they feel yummy!
