I have been so busy lately that my blog has not been able to feature in my life. Also, my middle daughter is heading towards the end of her 'A' level courses at school, so needs the computer a lot, to complete coursework and essays. The Easter holidays begin tomorrow, so I shall have to bag my slot on the computer early in the morning, I think, before my teenagers are up and about! Hope the good weather continues....
I managed to buy a huge lot of vintage curtains and fabrics last weekend. It has been wonderful to wash them all and dry them outside on the washing line. It was quite blustery yesterday and they dried in minutes.
I then had to face the acres of ironing!
I love my old wooden 1950's ironing board, but it is very small, so ironing the huge green satin curtain, that is over 5 metres wide, took some time!! Very satisfying to see them all looking clean and fresh again though.
I have covered my ironing board in an old blanket and a pretty vintage eiderdown fabric. If it wears through, I just add another layer of floral fabric with my staple gun!
I also bought a wonderful old Sanderson fabric made into a sofa cover. It is very worn at the seams, so I think I shall re-use the fabric for some cushions....which I shall make when I have the time!!!
