As promised I thought you may like to see what I bought from Sarah Moore's Spring floral vintage fair at the weekend, and especially for a friend Sally Calve who wanted me 'to spill' as to what treasures I had sourced before she arrived!!!
because I have several projects that urgently need finishing and this really was on my mind for the floral I had in mind. I found the perfect ones.. The washerwoman came up trumps for two of my fabrics and another piece was from Sarah Moore.
I am afraid that Vintage to Victorian tempted me once more, the lovely Sue knows my tastes now as well as I do
They are so lovely and I am grateful that she knows me this well as to direct my eye to them. Also the naughty lady had some wonderful cream lace with roses on and a hand painted silk panel along with some vintage embroidery
I moved along and came across some wonderful vintage china bits. I purchased a wonderful dinner plate for my dresser and think it is the perfect vessel for a cake I make and put fresh lavenders on as decoration... It is the right size, also a great size to eat supper off of so it will be used often
Then I spied some vintage seed papers and a whole book of vintage cigarette cards that were cottage garden flowers... I bought those as I like to stitch them onto fabric sometimes and this mixes medias up and makes things you stitch interesting and have texture.
The muted colours on there are really lovely and also with the date kindly stitched on and the name of the person who did said stitching, I was very happy indeed. It has pictures and the ABC and 123's on it. Some samplers are very fire and brimstone and I am not so keen but this was perfect and blends well with my other two!
My husband came running up with two large thread spools for me as he knows I am using them for wall hangings ( poor thing, I have trained him obviously too well and now he is brain washed!)
So as you can see I did very well personally and for my projects that I am working on.
I love getting the bits home and looking at it all. Then getting the camera out for photo's. I normally wash all the fabrics but in this instance all fabrics had been washed and pressed so I do not have that pleasure!
Well I going to have a nice warm mint tea and then I am away to my treasure trove of a stitching room to get on with all my projects.... Have a great day and as always
