Re-cycling fun ideas

Last night we had a meeting at church and as one of the organisers we decided on the theme of fun re-cycling.

Penny showed how to make fabric softener and displayed earrings on a cheese grater. She also planted a geranium in a pair of kids jeans for a fun outside feature.

Katie explained about fixing jars to the underside of shelves for storage, punching holes in cans and using with a tea-light for outdoor decoration and a few other useful tips.

Katherine showed recycled fabric made into quilt blocks and two great bags made from old jeans.

I made a bird feeder from two wooden spoons and an old pop bottle, a pretty rag wreath for decoration, planting in old margarine tubs, some quilting ideas and using a skirt hanger to hold your recipe book while cooking.

It was a great evening and topped off with lots of goodies to eat.

Thank you, Diana. This blog of yours gave me a great idea for my church. If it works out, I will blog about it and let you know. Ha-ha, I think this is funny. The world today!

What a week of ups and downs

Sunday started so well as I went to church but then I hit an uneven curb in the church yard. The damage did not look too bad but it ruined ...
