a sneek peek . . .

progress report
I have joined in The Hottie Challenge, with 59 others, over at Curly Pops Blog
I am determined to NOT be the last one to finish this Hottie Cover, particularly as all the proceeds are going to a very worthwhile charity.

So, I have cut my vintage table cloth up (no crying please, it had massive HOLES in the main part, I'm saving the good bits).  I have selected a few embellishments, and I am feeling positive...
to  be  continued. . .


  1. oooo it's going to be a lovely one Lyndel! I can't wait to see how you "embellish" it x

  2. Cant wait to see how it turns out xx

  3. Hi Lyndel, what a fantastic way of the gorgeous parts of a not so perfect tablecloth...can't wait to see more. Tam x

  4. What a fabulous idea! Love it.

  5. Lyndel it looks like it will be wonderful.Gorgeous old embroidery. I do wish I could sew. Look forward to seeing your finished result. :)

  6. Re your comment on my anniversary: very funny Lyndel, I wish I had one but alas no wedding tea towel.
    Also on dog on quilt: that really cracked me up because when my husband is home (he is away on business quite alot) the dog is NOT allowed on the bed! It is a big No No. You said it's not a doggy blanket, my husband says our bed is not a's a big bone (ha!) of contention between us...anyway just had to tell you, I'm in a hurry so forgive poor grammmar etc x

  7. Looks great. what a fab idea. I must get another hottie, when the last one died with a hole we changed to wheat bags. Now I've given up the microwave - never trusted those things - we need hotties!!!

  8. Hiya
    I’m just sending out a quick message to let people know their Faith Hope and Charity Swapping partners. Days of spreedsheet fiddling I tell you, if this works it’s going on my CV! I won’t have access to a PC from Tues 31st until June 6th – so any questions will have to wait til I get back I’m afraid. I’m going to put up a quick post on the rules before I go, but for now you can check out your partner’s blog and start figuring out what they might like.
    Your swap partner is Carole at Serendipity, raindrops and Roses

    Thanks for playing along!

  9. Lovely Lyndel - maybe I will get to see it in progress on Monday night...
