I could not decide what to do a blog on this week so thought I would just waffle on about nothing in particular for a bit in the hope you might be interested enough to read on! Where are the weeks going? Here we are half way through July already, not long to Christmas now! I have been getting bits and pieces of work done for the Home spun Fair, I think my stand will be small but interesting!!!!
We went here last week, Golitha falls on Bodmin Moor, it was raining (when hasnt it been the last couple of weeks!) and it was very gloomy and green and romantically creepy. We got soaked but it was worth it, such a beautiful place.
This was the first time that we have been up onto the Moor, we will definitely go back but not till the autumn when there are not so many tourists around. Now the summer holidays have started there are places that are no-go areas till September, it is like there are two Cornwalls, our Cornwall in the winter with wild empty beaches and then summer Cornwall when villages are full and beaches packed. Not that I am complaining as I know how much we all rely on tourist trade for our livings but of the two I much prefer the quiet times.
I have just been mad on sewing this week with my new/old machine zig-zagging away happily. This piece based around this lovely photo is called 'What are little girls made of?' I used bits of a torn quilt that Christine gave me, the colours in it are beautiful it must have been gorgeous when new and its faded to lovely subtle tones. I love all the torn edges and the bit in the bottom left hand corner was worn and torn and worked as a little pocket to put some vintage millinery flowers in, sweet.
This is my sewing table, a bit untidy after finishing 'Sail Away' which is all red, white and blue. I keep all my favourite old photos, scraps of lace, ribbon, buttons and fabric on here and try and only use it for planing and layering up new pieces. I only recently made this area for sewing stuff and its nice to be able to leave it all out like this.
Thought I would bung in a pic of some little things in a little old cigar box that has sweet little flowers on, I love old cigar boxes.
The sun came out this afternoon!!!! So this is where we were at 3 o'clock, where were you, and was the sun shining? Hope the sun shines on you this weekend, have a good one.
