The fabric sale- Fabricabrac- that I wrote about on Friday was really great- there were so many lovely fabric finds on offer. My class went okay too- thank you to everyone who came along! I must remember to speak more slowly though... I think I'd finished speaking after ten minutes but I still had half an hour to go. Luckily the audience was pretty kind and forgiving.
You can see above the fabrics I bought on Saturday morning- I was actually rather restrained (I thought) and I could have done a lot more damage. But I told myself to only get a few things that I really knew I would use, and that is what I did.
My favourite find was a linen tablemat from the 1970s, and I sewed it up into a storage pouch today. I love those oranges and browns together, and they're so evocative of a time, I think.
I also found a beautiful vintage apron at Rosemary McLeod's stall, some linen and a buttery soft wool in sea-green. Treasures!
