Friends and Fabric

Yesterday I popped down to the college to a collectors fair where I  knew Julie from "The Cloth Shed" blog would be with her lovely french inspired stall.

Everything was beautifully arranged and the smell of lavender and hyacinths wafted as you walked past.


There were some lovely pink toile cushions, cake plates, glasses,


crinoline ladies, twine ans a cute card of buttons stitched into flowers.....



and Julie always has piles of beautiful linen!!



I got two pieces of Kate Forman "ophelia" in pink just enough to make into a lovely summer skirt with a pocket on the front to go with all my other skirts all patiently waiting to be ironed!!


Julie gave me a hyacinth in a beautiful peachy colour and I had just the jug for it,


a few stalls along and I got  an old peppercorn jar from F&M and a silver toast rack to hold some special letters, not quite spending £15 I think I got some bargains!!


On Friday I met up with Sally from "Lavender Attic" blog  at "Me and Mrs Fisher" for a morning of knitting, the knitting did come out of the bag but went back in again without a single stitch being done as we were far too busy chatting, drinking pots of tea and eating the best lemon drizzle cake I've ever tasted!!


I called in CK and got this lovely budgie note book that I'm going to put my knitting patterns and pictures in but more on that next time!!

I LOVE hyacinths - I keep having good intentions to plant some in cute little teacups!

Like the look of the cushions and fabric in the first photo too x

Ooh thank you for your kind comments about my stall! It was a busy day at Hartlepool College....
I love your one of a kind Kate Forman skirt pattern with the little pocket and lace underskirt. I'm sure the pink Ophelia linen will be equally as amazing.
