Off to a wonderful private vintage fair this weekend!

Good morning all!

Well this week has flown by, my weeks generally do but when they are a four day week it's like they are jet propelled!

I am very much looking forward to this weekend as I am off to an invite only vintage textile buying day.  It is at a private house and I am afraid I can not say much about it.  It will be held in a marquee so the weather can do what it pleases as far as the fabrics are concerned and talking of fabrics there will be lots of beautiful French textiles for sale.....

I will take a few photos of inside of the marquee and let you know about my day and what I managed to find at such a wonderful event.  I feel very privileged to have been invited at all.

Also later in June there is the Vintage Bazaar at the Cheese and Grain in Frome Somerset.  It is on the 21st June and is always a great event.... that's one for your calender not to miss!

I am now away to my sewing room as I have a little machine stitching to do and then I will be able to settle down with my hand embroidery today, more and more of my work has hand stitching or embroidery on it and I am so pleased.  It does take longer of course but honestly It looks, to me at least, so much better. When you are working with vintage and time worn fabrics, it somehow blends more!

Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Stitching!


This is sitting on my dinning room table now..... I was playing with flowers in a pretty vintage teacup and saucer and this is what it finished up like.....
