Pile of lovely things







Feeling frazzled today but reminding myself about these lovely recent acquisitions has cheered me up. The French pattern was a gift from a colleague (I was so touched!) and the buttons were brought back by my mum from her trip to Argentina. The floral fabrics and the scallop edge blouse pattern (swooooon...) are from Brighton. You may remember the turquoise fabric from a previous post on imaginary shopping (I couldn't resist Ray Stitch's recent 20% off promo). And as for the sewing machine necklace... well... no explanation needed for this little beauty :)

  1. Explanation absolutely needed! Where did that wonderful necklace come from?

    And that does it, I definitely have to make a craft pilgrimage to Brighton...

  10. pretty patterened materials. I was digging through my mums sewing cupboard the other day and managed to steal a whole bag of pretty floral materials. She also has tonnes of sewing pattern packs in there, but I don't think any of them would be my size :(.

  15. Ahahahaha! For those without access to Topshop (or those who are allergic to Oxford Street), there are lots of sewing machine necklaces going on Etsy. I've bagged one already.

    I suspect you've just started a trend!

    And if I weren't on a fabric diet, I might have hopped on the bandwagon with that turquoise floral, too...
