Happy Saturday and vintage stitchery...' New ' Garden Journal..

Good morning all

Well today I am going to do a little tidy up and sort through of my sewing room.  I have been rummaging alot over the last couple of weeks and things have got a bit untidy to say the least.  Everything is away but not very neatly!

So today I am going to tidy all of my fabric drawers and take a little inventory of stock as well.  In two weeks time I am off to another vintage fair for fabrics ( what will I find this time I wonder!) and so I must take stock and make sure of the room I have.

Yesterday I completed a garden journal that will be for sale.  I think it is rather shabby and chic and made from vintage blanket with antique French linen and a piece of vintage quilt.  I have hand embroidered a bird on there using French knots, running stitch, blanket stitch, chain stitch and cross stitch.  There is a very old carved mother of pearl button on there to hold the vintage silk ribbon tie...

I picked up a vintage embroidery book on my travels last month so I am going to cuddle up in a chair and have a little read this weekend too, I will let you know how it is......

I hope you all have a most wonderful weekend and enjoy the rest.

Happy Stitching....
