Friday Finds no.11

Bonjour! This week I have mostly been lying on the sofa, feeling ill, watching movie after movie and looking as miserable as Anna Karina but unfortunately not as pretty. Une Femme est une femme had me itching to be well again so I could skip about town wearing red tights - maybe today! Being ill has also afforded me plenty of time to read blogs and this has been a brilliant week:

- Jane shared some tips on flogging your wares at craft fairs

- Seersucker Sally wrote a fascinating post on propaganda prints in WWII fabrics

- Thought you knew how to sew on a button? Tasia will make you think again!

- Scruffy Badger used ricrac to beautify a polka dot blouse

- Wear your stitching credentials with pride by turning your notions into adorable necklaces

- Janice put together some tips on making time to sew

Au revoir, mes amis, et bon weekend!


  1. Thanks for the wonderful list of links, I found the post about propaganda fabrics really interesting! Also, hope you get better so you can skip around in red tights.

  2. I love the Scruffy Badger's rick rack blouse! Such a great use for rick rack.

    Thanks for the shout out, Tilly. Hope you feel better soon!

  3. Ooh thanks for the mention Tilly. Hope you're over the worst - go and make yourself some crumpets, they always make me feel better. x

  4. Hi Tilly, Thank you for linking to me :-)
    I hope you feel a lot better soon and can get back sewing just like you know you want to! Have a good weekend, x

  5. I hope you feel better soon.
