One of my eBay purchases arrived yipppeeee! When I opened it a rather strong smoke odour flew up my nose and I dropped the fabric in shock. I am not sure yet how to get rid of this smell, I washed it four times today with soap and the water ran out yellow from the years of accumulated smoke in the fabric (bluurrrgggg!). I think this was part of a curtain in a smoking household. Nancy over at figs and roses told me that it might help to put it outside and let the fresh air take care of it. I am going to give that a go and hope for the best. But first...
I couldn't wait to use the fabric, I bought it because it made me think of my sister. I made her an apron a few years ago and I wasn't happy with the fabric I used. I wanted to use something much more like this. So when I saw it I thought perfect, I can rectify my mistake.
It is a little shorter than I would like but that is all the fabric I got and I think it just about works
This is my favourite photo as it basically sums me up in the kitchen, rather unsure what to do and hoping that someone with some sense will take over shortly.
Lots of love
p.s. I'll get the smoke smell out before I send it. I hope. Any other thoughts tips ideas are most certainly welcome.
