And I didn't just do this for fun!! Though I do like driving.. I'm one of those weird ones!!
I went to the Vintage and Textile Fair. Hosted by these guys Vintage and Handmade
I'd hear about it via Facebook etc and had wanted to go for about 6 weeks, the husband was fine with it.....until this morning, when he said he wouldn't lend me the money (he's the main breadwinner) OMG!! I was soooo mad!! So do you know what I did?
I WENT ANYWAY!!!
Dipped into my savings (ooops) and off I skipped!!
Want to see what I got?????
Selection of scrap fabric, ribbon and buttons from
the very helpful Sarah Hardaker
who's lovely company prints patterns onto linen fabric - a must for linen lovers like me!
Can't wait to tear these open and have a play!! but had to photograph them for you first!!
Beautiful set of Liberty fabrics
Must visit Liberty in the future!!!
A few other bits and bobs!
Namely french linen! Yey!! and I can't resist a tartan scarf - perfect for turning into a homely doorstop!
These two beautiful pieces of fabric were from the lovely Backstitch
I will definitely be swinging by to look at their lovely wares again!
Last but not least - french linen.....oh, how wonderful this stuff is!!
And soooooo hard to find in Birmingham!! :( Booo!!
Just a short post today as I really need to get in the shower and get ready for LIONFEST!
Its our local pub having a raffle for Help For Heroes ( I shall be donating a make up bag and face scrubs and a lavender heart or two) as well as my friends 'Midlife Crisis' all playing their wonderful music while the sun goes down.
Should be a good one!!
