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 :)

  1. I love the illustration in the book, and I wonder if that bee in the book served as inspiration for the Maya the Bee cartoon...
