Also I purchased this beautiful antique lace collar from her as well it was such a gorgeous design and
it will probably be stitched on to something but not as a collar - as yet I am unsure but who knows we will wait and see..
From Le Shed I bought this gorgeous little seed packets what wonder and delicious antique ephermera! The lady said some people used them as book marks. I am not sure quite what will happen to these and they may end up in a journal. As you know I am mad on journaling and I also belong to pen pal group. I know some of my pen pals would love one each ....
From The Dolls House I purchased a little book called Bunny's Friends. It is a old child's
book that had seen better days as the spine was a bit broken but it suited me. I have already de-constructed it to make a scrap journal and cut out the sketch drawings to use and the rest of the pages will get used for something. The cardboard cover has now had its spine strengthened and it will be covered in fabrics and decoupage along with me stitching my own pages back in that I will have made too. So you see when I bought this dear little book I knew I was about to re
purpose it and make it useful again....
WVS Book shop I bought some really beautiful linens . The Chinese one will stay as is and will grace our dinning room table when we do a Chinese evening. I have never seem one of these before and I thought it was so pretty. Then the other ones here in the lemon and white well they again are so beautiful and will probably either go to covering journals or indeed may even stay as is and grace our dinning room table in Spring times .... They are so soft and in such beautiful condition and I am thrilled with them.
In addition to the above I bought the most gorgeous Victorian letter clip from Ebay and it has arrived this week , unlike my quilting foot!! ahhhh do not get me started!
Anyway this beauty arrived and it is stunning and with lots of letter writing of late it will not only come in handy but it is a thing of beauty to behold in my humble opinion!
Well that is it for today and I am sorry I am later. I am off to spend time with my Mum for a few hours this morning she has been a little down and we do not want that for her. She can not explain why but I am sure she knows at some level she is in a care home. It is a gorgeous care home but it is not home...... So cheering up day today for her. The sun is out too. There has been some prep going on this morning ..
Have a wonderful day today whatever you are up to and as always .......
Happy Stitching! XX
