It's been nice getting the sewing machine out today and seeing the craft room littered with threads and scraps of fabric again. I bought a bundle from Fabric Rehab last year and I sorted through all the bits today, I have some lovely fabrics with vintage-y teacup designs, shabby florals and even one with little tug boats on. Unfortunately my sewing ability limits me to cushion covers and taking up clothes but I want to try some new things so I've been leafing through my Kirsty Allsop Craft book this evening looking for inspiration. I'm hoping I can stretch to a hanging heart as my friend is having a vintage tea party tomorrow and I'd love to take her along one as a present, along with a homemade teacup candle of course! The attire for the party is pre-1960s so I've bought a couple of 1940's dresses from eBay and I'm also going to have a nose around the vintage shops in Pokesdown tomorrow.
Hope you all have lovely weekends planned; along with my craftiness today I will further be ensuring my hands do not get idle by digging up the garden tomorrow; the seeds we have on windowsills and in the germinarium are going crazy so time to get the soil ready for planting them out. How exciting that in a few months time we'll be able to start eating them all; nothing like the feeling of foraging in your garden for your dinner!
