Still here.........


....but just been busy churning out enough pretties for the first fair in less than 3 weeks now....eek!!!!

Lavender stacks tied with pretty ribbon.......lots and lots (these are the first few), mostly from vintage fabrics and vintage sheets, a few from some pretty Japanese Zakka floral linens and newer fabrics

lots more of these 30s repro fabric cushion covers (shown here in unfinished state) in various different colours, some with embroidered hearts

antique mangle cloth lavender hearts.....

backed in vintage linen

and some larger hearts also from antique linen mangle cloth

and other vintage and antique fabric cushions and things not yet finished and not yet photographed.

Sorry I havent visited you recently in the last week or two, but am hoping to catch up with you soon now that I'm feeling a little bit more comfortable that I will have some things to sell!

Logan has been my constant sewing companion these last few weeks, although he keeps his distance from the cutting table since I  accidentally dropped a pair of scissors near him last week - poor boy, he did jump!

I was terrified they'd landed on him, but he was fine. But now he lies either in the door way or up on the chair well out of harms way!

Thanks for all your comments on my last post, look forward to visiting you soon!
