Dashing off ............



Thank you all for your lovely comments.....


I am off down to London ( leaving poor lonely hubbie at home) to see my beloved mom for a few days and then I am working at New Designers at Islington helping put up the graduate show there with our final year students and my colleagues .........so  I have had no time to reply to your lovely comments and ideas.. rush rush panic rush   ... ha ha ...but  I will as soon as I get back.  I so want to fit in a visit to the Columbia Road flower market...and a thousand other things while I am there so see you soon and enjoy the sun my lovely friends
Lots of love xxxxxx

My vintage and modern cups




 New place mat ideas


Printing onto vintage fabric


 Two 
obsessions
food and the written word............... they are bound together in my mind like a cake recipe..... ha ha...
Now what am I going to make with my newly printed vintage fabric........any suggestions most gratefully received.
Love to you all....... I think we are in for a sunny week xxxxxxx

Tendrils of summer.....

Lots of sewing to finish, my felt heart was from Helen my lovely friend...

A linen printed and embroidered banner I am making......

My tablecloth blouse.......no tea stains ha ha

A vintage purse I have upcycled...just needs some buttons....



The smell of salt on a warm breeze, and warm moss in the woods, picnics in the park, and muddy feet in a stream....we all need this, we need the sunshine and the warmth, I like to laze under sleepy sky's sewing, and healing.. feeling the sunshine warm me through.


  I have made a blouse from a worn soft creamy white  table cloth, and I am rather pleased with it, though the tiny pleats took ages!, the other bits, my little vintage purse and my wall hanging are just me enjoying my needle and thread making pretty things for who knows what ha ha .......just the pleasure of it..I'm so sorry I am not around much , but I love to hear from you and hope you are all well...
Bright blessings my lovely friends xxxxx
