Staying in Dos Hermanas near Seville

Travelled as far as Seville and stopped due to some problems…

 We are parked up nearby in a suburb called Dos Hermanas. When life gives you bitter oranges (local reference!) make marmalade. Taking the time to mend a few articles of clothing. Very nice to get back to normal. Also feels good to be able to repair a cardigan when feeling hopeless about the electricity situation.

It is a bit hard to see, but I have added a few small stitches to this sleeve;

Reduce reuse recycle taking care of clothes

Travelling and repairing clothes

…And sewn closed a hole that was opening up on the collar of this woollen cardigan.

Example of Spanish tiling

Admired some beautiful painted tiles during a trip to Seville also.

Tiny house clothing storage

Rearranged the cupboard after the great mould fiasco, and donated some unwanted clothes (non-mouldy, of course!) to a charity bin. It doesn’t look like Spain has the breadth of second-hand stores and opshops that Australia has, but I have managed to find one organisation called Humana, and there are threee Humana stores in Seville alone!

Still fixing the solar system too, there are a few delays with the language barrier and public holidays here. Keeping busy really helps in keeping the mind away from stressing out about the whole situation. Have a few rugging and sewing projects planned to keep everything ticking along.
