Christmas and the holidays are over at last, not that I haven't enjoyed them. We had a lovely quiet Christmas and New Year but now I am looking forward to what 2011 holds in store for us all. As there is much tidying up and clearing out to do I decided to go down to my little work room and have a tidy up.
I think my summerhouse could do with a lick of paint this year when the weather improves as it is looking a little shabby to say the least.
Lots of bits and bobs ready for when I begin sewing, jars to fill with vintage sewing items , covered buttons ready for cushions, and plenty of books full of inspiration.
An ever growing collection of ribbons and buttons.
A fraction of my collection of vintage quilt patches ready to be made into cushions.
Just some of the cutter quilts I use in my creations.
Baskets galore, and yet more vintage fabric stashed in the large basket.
A sweet little French screen purchased a while ago with the intention of covering panels in antique Toile...I promise I will get round to doing it this year sometime.
My trusty pink Roberts radio, on Radio 2 of course (well I am of a certain age)
Piles of feather filled cushions and bolsters ready to be used.
More boxes of precious antique and vintage fabrics all waiting to be used. As you can see I have had great fun sorting through all my stash and tidying things away. I cannot wait to get started now, sewing for the fairs and hopefully a new venture (if it comes off!!) Hope you are all feeling inspired for the new year ahead and looking forward to what vintage goodies lay in wait to be discovered by us all.
