More Spoils ...




Only a couple of photos - taken this morning before going off to Dairy House. The colour of the cushion is about right, but the silk kimono background is more sea-green than the photo shows. I had hoped to take more photos today but I ran out of time.


Just to update those of you who remember that months ago I said I was going to get out my sewing machine ... I finally managed to get a pair of curtains made yesterday for the bathroom. Anything else will have to wait until after the wedding, by which time I shall probably enjoy sitting down and creating. Time will tell ... having just realised that the 3-day Shepton Mallet Fair is the following weekend, so there'll be no 'honeymoon period' for me. It'll be straight back into sorting and packing in order to load up the car on the Thursday night. Oh joy ...

Thanks, Sue, for stopping by. I wish you great sales at Shepton Mallet. Where were you last year? outside, in the first bldg. or the last, or upstairs??

I can't imagine not buying anything from you if what you show here is any kind of example of what you offer. It all looks a treat!

More nice bits and pieces... so elegant! I'd love to swan around the house in that kimono!

see you there! said...

Do you know how difficult it is to look at pictures of all your goodies and not be able to get my hands on them?

Sigh!
