Just a quickie...

'cos boy have I been busy over the last few weeks and now I am also back at work.
Holidays are well and truly over. So much to show and tell but they will have to wait a while - sorry!

I am (Still!) amazed at what I find in Op Shops. This Linen 'bag' for instance was among the pillow cases. French seams on the inside. Beautifully embroidered detail on a fine natural linen and pretty crochet detail on the opening. Luckily I had the right sized vintage coat hanger just waiting! (also op shop finds!)





Have a good day friends :)

That's really sweet. I have a vintage hot water bottle cover (in my missing belongings) that is done in the most dainty wool embroidery. PS: I've given you a blog award on my blog today. PPS: Another gorgeous parcel arrived from you today - Thank you!!! Email still coming!
