Vintage Linen

Mum's been dredging through grannies drawers to find the old embroidered linen and has found a good few tablecloths lurking in the charity shops for a few pounds a piece also...they're for the party in the summer...VERY english :)

She added this cushion cover to her collection the other day as well...the 2 sides are very different and don't particularly match, but are both gorgeous! I'll show you again once its stuffed :)
Treacle's snuck a paw in there too :) she approves!

MummySews Garden

Mums been planting up pots and wheelbarrows and hanging baskets for the past few weeks - the garden will be absolutely decked with flowers this summer!
There's still a few more to pot up and hang and then they just need arranging around the garden! We're having a joint 21st/50th birthday party this summer so the garden will be beautified for all our guests! :)

Homewards Bound

I got home from Glasgow last weekend with a whole car full of flat stuff which we moved out. The car was so full!! There were knives and forks in all the car door pockets and books underneath the seats...nil visibility the whole way home but we managed :)
The next challenge was squashing everything into cupboards and wardrobes (wardrobes being the difficult one!)...
My two wardrobes couldn't really handle all the new additions! sew the 'winter' wardrobe has been packed away and all my floaty summery bits remain :)

...a good few bags of clothes (labels!) will be appearing on my ebay store soon, and an awful lot have gone of to charity shops :( i hate parting with clothes!
Oh yes and a vintage fair just happened to be on the day after i came home...I picked up a gorgeous indian embroidered panel which I'll hopefully appliqué onto a cushion cover.

Just look at that neat embroidery! Found a few books too: R. L. Stevenson's Treasure Island, Christian Andersons Fairy Tales' and Maya - the adventures of a little bee.

Look how lovely the prints are :)
