One of the parts of my job is sorting through, putting away the fabrics that I buy. It is a hard job, but someone has to do it .. Grin!!
After my slight shopping spree of gorgeous vintage fabrics, ribbons, lace and such they have to go away until use, after the photo shoot. Today is that day for me. I can hardly bare to to it. I think they may have to pile into a vintage basket and stay a while out in the sunshine....
Today is a short day for me as I am going to take a friends grand daughter to the hairdressers and back for her prom tonight and also over later to Lymington to her friends where she is getting ready with her besty to be picked up for the prom... I can not wait to see her all dressed up, hair done and of course in the most beautiful dress imaginable .... I will see pictures of it all together over the weekend I am sure.
I volunteered as her Mum is one of the organisers of this particular Prom and being run of her feet, plus the weather is so unpredictable at the moment that I would hate for her to be rained on.
So it is little jobs today until the times I need to take the princess to her appointments for the Ball...
She used to come and help in the school holiday cutting out and covering buttons from when she was 13 years old until 15 ... then she got herself a little job that was a regular thing and now she is nearly 17 years old and going on to A levels and Uni eventually ... I miss her excitement and chatter and can not believe where those years have gone at all.
I will hopefully get some stitching in as well, but sorting the fabrics will take some time... What do you think? I think they look wonderful in the basket. As long as they are out of the sun not to be damaged in anyway, I think these will look beautiful just as they are safely in the basket. I love having buttons in kilner jars so that they can be seen in all their vintage beauty and glory along with glass jars filled with vintage ribbons... I love sitting in my sewing room surrounded by history and beauty ... If some of the things could talk, what stories might they tell.
I check for moths regularly and have lots of cedar wood and rose around plus lavender as well which they seem to hate. I am afraid if they are seen they are evicted or squished depending ... no one gets away with nibbling at my fabrics ... grrrrrr
I ask you how can these possibly go into a drawer or a box until use ... it would be a crime!
I want to have some time to design for a day or so next week, always on a Wednesday I do but I may
Where has this week gone, I can not believe it this year is rattling on so quickly, it seems to me at least.
Well there will be a little blog tomorrow and also tomorrow is exciting because we are house hunting and hopefully we will be able to look at two of them as well ... fingers crossed for us.
Anyway have a great day and of course as always Happy Stitching! ......
