getting crafty

One of the things about living somewhere remote and having no budget for extras is that you have to get creative, in everything you do. I used to really love buying cards and presents for people when I had money. I also used to make stuff for myself on the sewing machine, but would have the luxury of choosing the fabric I wanted and the amount I wanted. Now I am making things from scraps and bits of old clothing from the dump!!! it doesn’t get more creative, often challenging and a bit limiting but I think the results are OK and the effort that goes in to these presents is way more satisfying.
