Then I bought five more cotton reels from Sarah's Victoriously Vintage and they are now living happily in one of the drawers with other reels. I love JP Coates and Silko's but my favourite will always be Coates because of my dear neighbour who I miss greatly ... he would have loved to see all this and the Trade Cards too.
As you can see I had a bit of a green colour day on Monday .....
Then my last purchase from the two hours I had there was a piece of quilt that I want to use for a photo shoot coming up to line a vintage dolls cradle ... it was perfect and I purchased this from my lovely friend Jenny of Tilly-D fame. I was very pleased with it and how different it was. I have two very different pieces for the shoot now so that is a tick..
As you can see I bought quality rather than quantity and the drawer unit and cushions were my big personal buy of the day. I also will be going to two fairs next week so I did pace myself some what ... One of them is a textile fair and that is were I can look for some bits for my designs. I will be looking for extremely pretty bits of quilts and some more fabrics and ribbons. If there is paisley well all the better I say.
The weekend is upon us and it makes a huge difference being a four day week. The weather man says it is going to be very warm so lets see and fingers crossed. I would love to go for a walk through the New Forest at some point over the weekend and take my camera for snapping away at nature ...
Come back here tomorrow as there is going to be something a little different. Not a little film but something that I have bought on the internet .. Ebay actually and I am thrilled with it.
Have a wonderful day and as always Happy Stitching!
