February already ... this is scary!!
February brings the rain.
Thaws the frozen lakes again!
So please tell me where January has gone? I really feel like we just packed up from Christmas and already we are into our second month of 2016.
The weather is terrible here but I am very well aware that there are some very bad conditions in the North of our tiny island and people have been flooded out of their homes and businesses so really I have nothing to complain about. We have a soggy garden but that is it. On go the wellies to feed the birds and my tame squirrel.
This is the month that some great vintage fairs start and I am very much looking forward to starting the circuit again this year. I feel I have not been to one for ages. My cough is all but gone but has taken nearly 6 months to do so ( shhh I should not have spoken too soon, just in case it thinks that I am missing it and decides to re visit me!!)
After my visit to the V & A the other week and sitting in the fashion exhibit scribbling in my journal I am in the middle of designing a 1920/30 piece. I have been looking closely into their fashion and magazines of the time. I adore this era of fashion, even their PJ'S were stunning in silks with matching dressing gowns.
I would love to get hold of a stitching magazine of the time and have been trolling and truffling through the internet and Ebay. So I am pleased that the vintage fairs are starting because you never ever know what will be on offer to purchase, it is very exciting.
So today I am going to do a little research and have a designing day I think plus I have a little pile of hand stitching ( tiny project things) that I want to get finished so that is my day planned. How about you?
Have a great day whatever you are up to and as always Happy Stitching!
