Such a grey and icy day. The light was thin and scanty. So, I did as Lucy does, and followed it – to a little sofa under the window, piled high with quilts and cushions. Cosy indeed. Supplies were gathered. Plans were hatched for a set of little travelling cups that my Aunty Anne found for me. She knew how much I loved the set Nanny and Grandad kept in their car’s dashboard when I was little. Anodised. In a brown leather (probably vinyl) zippered pouch. I thought they were ever so cute and loved it when Grandad would pull them out and Nanny would fill them up with usually forbidden sweet and fizzy drink and pass them round.
Now I have my own – sans the zippered pouch. Ah well – that can be sweetly remedied.
I’m not a huge fan of sewing with zippers or vinyl so chose the felt route instead. With a wee bit of needlefelting, blanket stitch and my secret ingredient – elastic!
Natty huh! Keeps the bottom from falling off my travelling cups and stops it from crumpling down when I put the top on!
The quiet snail, taking his time, enjoying the journey, seeking out treasures, stopping to make the most of the loveliest bits. Just like us Boots when we go travelling.
It’s the only way to go, don’t you think :-)
