This afternoon I'm flying to Cyprus because my beloved granddad was taken ill suddenly and is having a very risky operation on Monday. Despite his ongoing and complicated heart problems, we're staying positive as a family and are relieved to know that he's being looked after by some of Europe's best.
You can never plan for 'breaks' like these and it has completely thrown my sewing/blogging schedule. It may seem weird to even mention that, but I'll be gone a week and I know I'll get withdrawal symptoms from our lovely sewing community and this wee blog. I'm sure everything will go well though and that I'll be back here again soon! To cheer myself up and leave this space feeling positive, I'm leaving you with my most recent (and totally gorgeous) vintage fabric finds...
1940s rayon stitched together in panels to form the prettiest tablecloth.
I'm sure I can squeeze a dress out of it!
1960s (I think) curtains which feel like a luxurious sateen.
The warm colours would make a gorgeous A/W dress!
A kooky novelty print poplin with random bunches of radishes.
I love the stripy and heart-print radishes the best!
I lied a bit...this isn't a vintage find at all!
A recent buy from Fenwick's which needs to be a jacket with a leather trim.
Wonderful and amazing texture!
I hope to be back and blogging regularly soon, but I'll catch you on Twitter in the meantime no doubt and won't be able to stop myself from reading what you're all up to! Take care for now!
