I thought I would share with you how you can use strip rolls to make a beautiful Christmas wreath. I found it at http://eventstocelebrate.net/tag/crafts/
You could use this idea for any event not just Christmas. See the strip
rolls above that I am listing today at the Rag Rescue website www.ragrescue.co.uk
If you have made anything with vintage fabric strip rolls, please let me know by leaving a comment. I often wonder if there is anyone out there reading this blog of mine.
I've just listed four pieces of 19th century
French red toile fabric onto the website. The designs on them are
timeless although the modern versions just don't have the correct feel
or tones of the antique pieces.
Some specials have been added to the website today.
There are two Victorian skirts from the Castle Howard historic house, a
long length of unused fabric for a vintage Christmas and a wonderful
long length of hand worked crewel work embroidery.
Dreadful weather here in Morecambe today. Rain, rain and more rain. I suppose that we should be grateful for small mercies and glad that we aren't in Australia with the shocking fires. I hope my customers in NSW are safe, we are thinking of you.
Here are some Antique whitework embroidery samples for you to have a look at. I listed them on the site this morning. They look great added to journals, bags, pillows, cushions and any of your projects.
Wonderful antique and vintage lace at the Rag Rescue website today.
I recently bought a lot of lace which was acquired from 'The Hermitage'
Country House in Northumberland. This house had been untouched for at
least a century in fact it was a time capsule. The Morant family had
thrown very little away and items were stored very well in attics etc. Some of the lace below came from that Country House.
