Well the painting is on course but I am a bit behind because I have spent quite a long time chatting on the phone today! But I have been busy over the last few weeks making yards and yards of 'vintage' bunting. During my many, many trips to charity shops (thrift) I always end up on my knees rumaging through endless baskets of linens and old-fashioned tray cloths (which happily for me people just discard) and now have quite a selection with which I use for quite a few projects. Keep watching this space - I'll get around to photographing them as soon as the weather brightens up.
Anyway, I have used the vintage embroideries as the flags and it looks quite effective. They are to be brought on birthdays,high days and holidays, or whenever we need alittle cheering up.
As I've had 1 child off school last week, and another this week, I have been able to almost (just 20 stitches more!) finish the sampler that has taken nearly a year to sew. Isn't it wonderful to be nearing the end of a project? Im going to settle down tonight infront of the fire and do that final stitch.
