Gill P and I are having one of our 'making days' tomorrow to fine tune my Etsy shop. Chorizo, squash and pasta dish prepared, strawberries washed and hulled, teapot rinsed and at the ready! Hopefully it will be ready to open by the end of the week.
At Tynemouth flea market yesterday a lady was selling tiny doillies, something I always look out for to use in my work. I bought twenty five lovely pieces....
some unusual shapes and sizes
Today some of them ended up in a teal/grey pale dye bath, they have been soaking all day, I am really pleased with the result a very antique looking grey shade.....
shades of grey in the making
A fantastic purchase today from my favourite charity shop as it was closing - just in the nick of time to find this box.......
as you know, I have a bit of a weakness for a battered box, what would this contain I wonder?
a bolster pillowcase
pure Irish linen double sheets and pillowcases
I own one vintage pure linen sheet which I inherited from my grandmother, and have been looking for another for quite a while. Imagine my excitement when I realised that this was an unused set, scalloped edged and a little drawn thread work. The only fly in the ointment is that they are very grubby so will probably require a lot of tender loving care to restore them to their former glory. I am wondering if they were a unused wedding present.
Until next time, so lovely to see the sunshine, Jayne x
