wound onto it ... It looked so lovely and even if I use the fabric ribbon I can always make more from some gorgeous fabric I have here and wrap it around the spool or indeed make something with the spool but I thing this is a keeper for fabric ribbon or bias binding, which I am really fond of making right now and I have a tiny little iron on a stick that I had as a Christmas present and it is perfect for pressing tiny bits of fabric with its very pointed edge at the top.....
Sue of Vintage to Victorian has some gorgeous little hexagon patchwork pieces in packs and I bought two that I could not resist. One being black and embroidered as you can see and so unusual. I really have no idea right now what I will stitch these on to but you can rest assured it will be something and they will not stay in the box for too long I can tell you. I really did not do her stall any justice what so ever but I will see her in April at the West Country Fabric and Textile weekend so being as she really is not doing much at all this year in way of vintage fairs I will be having a very good look and will have finished sorting my sewing room ( she says with some force) and then I can right a list and take my time looking. Watch out Sue I will be bringing a huge bag to carry it all in!
My final purchase of the day was at The Beehive as I told you on my blog on Tuesday where I
purchased this beauty for my kitchen. I have weights so its all good but not only was it the colour ( I would say its 1950's) but also I have never seen a set of scales with the round top in such good condition before, I fell in love with it so it got wrapped up and taken home with me.
They were £25 and I just could not leave them at the shop. They are enamel and it has not been repainted at all and because it is not chipped on the round cream dish part they are still food worthy and will be used all the time!
Well that is the show and tell from the weekend and the next fair that I am going to is the VB in Frome in April and then the very following weekend I will be going to The West Country Fabric and Textile Weekend. Although there is a possibility I may get to the the Selvedge Fair in Bath on the 25th March .... All the details of this one are in the vintage fair blog I did at the end of February.
Have a wonderful day and I will see you back here tomorrow. Happy Stitching! XX
