Two fabulous pieces of French vintage toile from the late 18th century. The image on the right only shows a small part of the design. It can be viewed in full tomorrow at the Rag Rescue website.
There will also be two smaller pieces of French vintage toile.

Vintage French fabric for small projects tomorrow

Apologies for lack of newsletter

I am afraid my monitor has stopped working on my PC this morning. As I don't have all the customers emails (over 500 of them) on my laptop or external hard drive, I'm afraid I haven't been able to send out the weekly newsletter to my customers.
If you would like the newsletter can you please email me at sandie-k (at) tiscali (dot) co (dot) uk and I will send you one in an individual email. I am hoping to get my monitor sorted tomorrow. If this is not possible, don't forget you will be able to see a preview each evening of the next days listing.

If anyone out there is technical perhaps you could tell me why out of the blue my monitor shows a red rectangle stating 'Out of Range' and 'Work Range'. Help would be very well received.

Rag Rescue website link to go on ITV 1, this morning

I had a phone call from the 'ITV 1 channel - This morning', today asking me if I would send them  one of the watercolours from the Rag Rescue website for their photo shoot on a room make-over. In return for this they are going to place a link on itv.com/thismorning. How cool is that?

Tomorrow I am listing some more vintage fabric squares, hope you like them.

All will be revealed at the RAG RESCUE WEBSITE tomorrow

Eggs in Rag Rescue vintage fabric





I've been under the weather the past few days so I sat watching the television some afternoons and stitched some eggs using my vintage fabrics from the Rag Rescue stock.
I took the pattern from the new 'Mollie Makes' magazine.
Don't know if you have seen this wonderful magazine but if not you really should. In my opinion it is the best craft magazine on the market.

You can get one egg out of a Rag Rescue scrapbag and at £3.50 that's a bargain I think.
