Feast your eyes on these wonderful pieces of vintage fabric at Rag Rescue tomorrow


So what have I been doing at Rag Rescue today you might ask.
Well apart from wrapping orders, posting them and answering emails, I have -

Cut out ready to photograph

10 scrappy parcels and 40 scrapbags 

That was 200 pieces of scraps for the scrappy parcels 
and
160 pieces of fabric for the scrapbags.

Now I just have to cut 40 pieces of card for the scrapbags and I can
begin photographing all of them. tomorrow.

Me thinks I had better go and get my own ironing done then, as it is piled high.

Don't forget to put the clocks back so that you can have an extra hour in bed, that is if your children or dogs will let you.

Don't forget from tomorrow morning items will be listed at 7am GMT

Vintage French fabric and Christmas mood board.

Four more lovely pieces of French fabric for your sewing projects. All at the Rag Rescue website tomorrow.


I thought I would create a Christmas mood board today as it gives viewers an idea of what vintage fabrics and embellishments there are on the website that could be used for Christmas crafts.
Enjoy.

Finally I would like to send my sympathy to everyone in Ireland who are living through the terrible floods there.

Fabulous embroidered vintage motifs.


After three days of putting everything back into my lounge after decorating it, I am really pleased to be able to sit at the computer all day pre-listing lovely items for you to have a look at.

Above you can see some wonderful vintage embroidered motifs that would look great embellished onto a jumper, cushion, bag or indeed any of your crafting projects. They will all appear on the 
Rag Rescue website tomorrow morning. Grab them while you can because when they are gone they are gone.

A rose is a rose is a rose............

There is nothing more difficult for a truly creative painter than to paint a rose, because before he can do so he has first to forget all the roses that were ever painted.
Henri Matisse
