If you love toile, you'll love these pieces. They are great for adding to cards, patchwork, felt work or other crafts that require embellishments. All of the pieces have been shipped over from France and I like to use every little piece, hence the packets with more than one piece in.
A little cooler here today with a nice gentle breeze. I did a bit of gardening then started on the Spring cleaning ,ready for our guests arriving tomorrow afternoon. Hubby is selling at an antique fair tomorrow so I should get everything ready for the afternoon.
I hope you will like this weeks listings, even though you may be too busy enjoying yourselves having a well deserved rest this Easter holiday.
All the above will be listed tomorrow morning at 7am. If you are going out tomorrow or Monday, use this blog to search the new listings and then check them out in the various categories on the website.
Today I was sent this photograph by one of my customers.
A while ago she had bought some vintage buttons from me. After seeing a pattern in the 'Making' magazine for a cushion cover, she decided to knit it. In order to secure the cushion she used some of the buttons she had bought from Rag Rescue. I'm sure you will agree she has made a brilliant job.
Well done Barbara
I'm sure Barbara would love to hear your comments.
I'd love to see pictures showing how you use vintage buttons and I'm sure others would like to see them too. Send your photo's to
Just look at these great designs on the vintage fabrics which will be listed tomorrow on
the Rag Rescue website.
What a glorious sunny day it has been today. I watched the young men walking past my window on their way back from the beach clad only in shorts, boy, were their bodies glowing red! Hmmmm!
Now that all of my accounts are ready for delivery to the accountant on Monday I've been able to get back to sorting out new stock to list. Today was ironing and cutting day, tomorrow will be a photography day and Monday a washing day. Just hope the good weather holds, not only so that I can dry the fabrics outside but I hope to take Poppy out to some secluded spot alongside the bay, away from the tourists, in the SUN.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend and if you have signed up for the newsletter which contains next weeks listings, it will be with you early so that you can enjoy this beautiful weather.
