It becomes very quite addictive and calming. I then started sorting bits for patches and to stitch on to samplers and other goodies. Little squares that are too lovely in their own right to cut up again put would make a great addition to a piece of work on there own ... if you put them together they look lovely. So I had a bit of a sort out of my basket of vintage fabric scraps but also it has enabled me to just go to my jars for squares or hearts. I still have a basket of fabrics that have not been categorised but now I have three places to look for a tiny bit of fabric that will be just right for the job in hand!
Then me being me and not liking waste I had a few strips of linen that I guess some would throw
away. One bit had like threads hanging which look fabulous and one bit was a hem from a vintage linen sheet. I thought I could make little bundles of fabrics and tie them up with those. Hoarder or being careful and non wasteful .... that is to be decided I guess.
Anyway I had a great time sorting as it was to dark to hand stitch tiny stitches and I wanted them very neat and hate unpicking .. not just because I feel it is not good for the vintage fabrics but I really do not like doing it, my humour goes!
Well today is a little better it seems so I hope to get some stitching done. Plus good new my sewing machine is back so I can do some machining as well. Have a great weekend and do not forget there is a blog tomorrow being Saturday..... This is a great one if you love vintage and like to knit.
