So I have three little stunner's and have been organising which one for which.
I am going to take one on holiday with me for designs and thoughts that I have in America and where and when. I always sign and date all my designs. Some used as late as 2 years later but they are all used. You can not copyright a butterfly, a heart, a flower or a bird lets say but it is what you do with it and the words you may use. If you use part of a quote from say a Shelley poem that you should put Shelley on there because it is not your words but we can borrow if we are polite about it......
I noticed that someone had done a very similar thing as I have been working on with butterfly's but it is not the same just similar. This design I sketch over a year ago and have only just started to stitch now for publication .... it is the way of the world. But I have my books of sketches and I keep them all.
One of these little books is now my official list for things that I am looking for at vintage fairs over the next few months and I have been making lists. This Saturday I am going to a vintage fair in Toddington and so I will have my list book so that I can remember to come home (hopefully) with at least some of what I need..
The full address for this fair is as follows:
Toddington Village Hall
I am really excited as I have been so busy I have not been to a vintage fair for over a month now and I am starting to get withdrawal symptoms and of course I am on the look out for some more beautiful linens, paisleys and buttons.
As you know I have had a slight clear out of my paisley drawer and have put some in inspiration packs to sell in October ( keeping a little of each one for my personal use as well) but ones that have been used in design have been re-cycled on... I know aren't I good and not too many nightmares about the decision!!
Anyway as always I will take photos on Saturday and show you all on Monday about the fair and of course there will be a show and tell later in the week as well as to what I have purchased.
Well I am off to my stitchery so I hope you all have a wonderful day and of course Happy Stitching!
