Recovering from the 5 day Show at the Rosehill showgrounds, driving the backway home again through all the wonderful country towns, Antique Shops , Bookshops, Photographing houses, Thermos of Tea and stitching all the way. HeavenSome lovely first day customers, Cheryle and Ruth from Cartwright with a Crinoline Bag.
Cheryle has completed the Vintage Miniature Sewing Machines in just 2 months, now working on the girls from “Cottages and Crinolines” and wants to start on the new “Antique Sewing Machines’ BOM. Wow I can’t keep ahead of the girl.
Ruth and our wonderful Mary. Ruth has signed up for the POM and BOM Vintage Miniature Sewing Machines along with many other dedicated embroiders at the show.
Such a sweet lady, I want to adopt her, she said so many lovely compliments, that my work was a wonderful combination of Vintage, Innovative, Whimsy, Classic, a twist on Country and so so different, a must have in one’s life. I need Ruth in my life, at least I get to write to her every month and send her the cute freebies etc.
Treated myself to 2 sewing related goodies, that I’m sure
you’d like as well. Too late for Mothers Day but I’m sure there are Birthdays
Ist is the “Jane Austen’s Sewing Box” craft projects and stories from Jane Austen’s Novels by Jennifer Forest. Beautifully illustrated with direst quotes from the novels and some handy projects for us sewers, although I won’t be making a muff or a cravat any time soon.
“Embroidery was one form of fancy work which could be worked while in company, demonstrating skill while producing useful gifts for Family and Friends” a beautiful read with great ideas.I have been eyeing these Sajou scissors for some time. They are inspired by the French Charles X style, the handles are imitation carved Ivory and the blades of forged steel, dipped, polished, chromed and hand-mounte. Very special indeed and they make me smile every time I use them.
The small pleasures we embroidery people get.
