Vintage and other finds! ;-)



I stumbled across a lovely patchwork quilt at the fair. It was on Donna's fab stall .

I've put it in its temporary home for the mo!



My other fabric finds:

The gaudy green is actually a scarf

but I thought it might be useful in some way!



I've been collecting FQs of vintage fabric,just for me!

Lately, I have added a few more to my small stash.

The larger pieces are earmarked for cushions!




I came across the CK Lupin fabric on Etsy.

I'm especially fond of this fabric as I've a bag

in another colourway..and love it!




One day,when things are not as hectic,

I might put all of these together, to make a quilt!

Meanwhile...










I've found just the place to sit and enjoy

these:



I'm certainly enjoying the new Mollie Makes mag!

and then there's this lovely book...




'A Second Helping' arrived today. I ordered it back in January

having been given the first helping for a birthday present!





Finally, I picked up this gorgeous little book at the fair.

More pics next week when I show and tell a few books !

And I'll also be getting ready for a new vintage fair ,

to be held next weekend, at Tavistock Town Hall.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

I'm off on a jolly tomorrow...naturally!!

;-)

Mollie Makes is a really interesting read isn't it. I don't make very much, but it still appeals. Love the new quilt.

What a feast of floral loveliness Sal .... my daughter bought me a copy of Mollie Makes yesterday so I think I will curl up and have a good read this evening x

I'm so glad that quilt lives with you now Sal. It looks just right in it's new home! Your other fabrics are delicious too and you must surely have enough for several quilts by now ;-)

Good luck for Tavistock and I hope you and Mr Snippets can get to visit us at Rosemoor x
