|I've bought some beautiful vintage floral fabrics recently, from a variety of places, all of which I hope to put to use over the next few months...Spring and summer are the best time of year for vintage florals! :)|
|Sanderson produce the stars of the show, but I also have a nice one by Horrockses and a couple of 'unknowns'.|
|This little basket-weave bedroom chair was in need of some new upholstery, so what better than to use a lovely Sanderson floral in-keeping with its age?|
|A straightforward job with hammer and tacks, hidden with a decorative braid and its ready to go again...|
|Also a simple firescreen was in need of a picture, so I used another Sanderson under the glass.|
|I painted the wooden frame a soft grey, then covered the backing board in the pretty floral bouquet fabric.|
|I've also been busy making some smaller pieces, using up tiny scraps of antique fabrics.|
|These woollen hearts were stitched onto old book pages and then mounted onto blank greetings cards.|
Lovely for Mothering Sunday which is at the end of this month (in the UK).
|I also made another version using antique silk damask fragments. Pretty spring-like colours for Easter.|
|These little hearts are made to be worn...|
|I fixed a hair pin to the back, so that they can either be worn in the hair, or clipped to a lapel or handbag.|
|Finally, a close-up of the little brooch pillows I made recently. Precious pieces of antique fabrics, softly filled and decorated with a vintage costume brooch.|
|Thank you for the kind wishes left on my previous post...Mummy and daughter are doing very well at home.|
PS: This Saturday I shall be offering my wares for sale at the Vintage Bazaar, Devises. More details to follow later in the week.
