A Door Snake and Aprons

I needed a draft excluder for my front door - not so much to exclude drafts, but more to stop the noise. Even a gentle breeze sounded like a gale force wind coming under the door. Plenty of simple instructions on the web so I printed up some heavy calico using my umbrella tree design in green, sewed a few seams, inserted velcro around the top and filled with dry sand. No noise now.

 Yellow and orange have not been popular colours for my screen prints - at least not in tea towels. So I recycled a couple of non sellers into aprons. I think they look stunning with black linen fronts.
