Today I hauled my tired self out of bed when the moon was still a shining and the thought of staying snug and warm was really quite appealing.
As I stood in the queue for the flea market the rain began to fall, I thought longingly of my warm and cosy bed, I truly did, but....
I was with a dear friend, who I don't see as much as I'd like to these days and there was, I hoped, some treasure waiting under all that soggy plastic sheeting.
Of late I am having a serious love affair with all things folky, so this gorgeous fabric was a very happy find.
a little tin,,,
Earlier in the week I picked up a special parcel from the post office, a parcel i've been waiting for, for some time,
Spoonflower is a site where artists can have there designs printed and made into their own fabrics.
I have been having a small crush on the artist
Pheobe Wahl of late, I just love her art work.
Her paintings and style, I LoVe a lot
So as a treat to myself for working so hard I ordered some fabric from Pheobe Wahl & the Artist
Celia Hart, who's work is also beautiful.
I have plans to make a patchwork quilt from the Celia Hart fabric, so am keeping it under my hat for now, while I do some planning, I have the quilt perfectly in my thoughts , I just have to get it out of my head and into the stitching...it is exciting and I love this stage of creating, before a thing comes into being.
as for the Pheobe Wahl fabric, I'm not too sure yet....
This little dish also came home with me
and a little pair of shoes
drying out on the woodburner
A few other bits and bobs but I have run out of light so I will save them for another day.
So how was your week end, did you find treasure?
Or did you stay warm and cosy?
Happy Sunday peeps xx
