Little treasures …

My machine is sitting in my bedroom at the sewing table patiently waiting for me to return to duties. The school holidays have turned out to be pretty busy really and to hide away sewing up my Autumn wardrobe is just going to have to wait!

In the meantime, here are two treasures I bought at Green Man from  Forage and Find, a busy and popular stall with too many goodies to choose from …

A gorgeous vintage brooch (can you see it next to the lovely postcard it is mounted on?) and a necklace made using an old postage stamp!

I have also just received an Ebay purchase, an A-line, lined skirt pattern from the 70s … exciting!

Unfinished business …

The skirt wasn’t started, the book remains unfinished and I still haven’t completely sorted the holiday …

Not to worry, I did have a nice weekend. I sold some clothes on Ebay and made a bit of money for our ‘holiday fund’, I did a massive pile of ironing (because I couldn’t allow myself to start sewing until my bedroom had some order) then I got distracted and demolished a bar of chocolate while watching a nice film (Grow Your Own) with Jimmy on BBC iplayer while it poured with rain outside.

I did have a chance to look at the latest Molly Makes last night, I really like this magazine. I wish it were a little chunkier or a little cheaper, but it’s designed very well with nice photography and the fact it’s British is a bonus. So far I’m finding it quite inspiring, it’s so nice to see so many crafty people out there. My eldest teen also likes to look at it, a welcome break after revising which seems never ending and far too stressful. She is looking forward to getting creative again in about two weeks time when they are all over!

I found this in my box of vintage patterns …

I might go and make a start now …
