Freshly laundered 1970s fabric
Well, that would be me.
I went to visit Mum yesterday because I hadn't been for a couple of weeks.
My parents are notorious hoarders (unfortunately, not all of it is good), but sometimes there is a stash of something in the back room that can be useful.
I see it as my filial duty to take something out of their house every visit, because I know it will be one less thing for my brothers and I to pack up when our parents go to hoarder heaven.
That's an awful selfish thought, isn't it? You'd forgive me if you saw how much stuff they have never thrown out. Seriously.
Anyway, I always encourage Mum to de-clutter and she is always happier when stuff is moved out of the house.
1970s curtain fabric
Like old retro curtain fabric. I have a plan for these as I prepare for summer. Think outdoor colour for the deck. Perhaps some cushions...And this thick material is perfect for that.
My mum must also have ESP because she brought out this large bag with three Hari Krishna orange coloured cushions, which she picked up on sale from K-mart.
They were $1 each and she thought of me. Bless her thrifty hoarding heart. My visit was serendipitous.
(How did she know I've been thinking cushions? There is no way she reads the blog because she doesn't have a computer.. at least not one that works and from this century.)
Although they are not what I had envisioned, I'm definitely going to use them as they'll be very handy as inserts for when I eventually have cushion covers made.
Cushion riches! I'll keep you informed with very important cushion updates.
