I'm afraid # 2 is a BIG FAT FAIL!
I took Rosie back to Uni in Northampton yesterday.
Just round the corner from where she lives is
We always call in for a 'look'.
This sewing box bought memories flooding back to me.
It was the same as my very first sewing box!
Well, how could I leave it?
So that was the start of the BIG FAT FAIL!
All threads 'as new'.
Pretty coloured knitting yarns and mini needles.
(I have plans for these!)
Next came this linen nightie with the initials
F K and 2 on it in tiny cross stitch - mine!
'Tell Me' game with questions in English and French.
Loving the colours on the cards.
Little Red Riding Hood wall hanging.
I feel a few embroidered words being added here.
Bag of old ribbons in pink ...
with a sneaky bit of green!
Another bag of old ribbons.
This time I picked blue.
How could I resist this yellow gingham vintage ribbon
with embroidered red roses on?
This Victorian tied pillowcase jumped in my basket while
my back was turned!
(hang on! I didn't have a basket!!)
You know I can't resist a book.
Bonus handwriting inside.
Thank you Telford for writing in it all those years ago.
I couldn't leave this behind because of the aged pages ...
and the signature...
but most of all because of the title.
A baby blue edged woollen blanket
with pink ribbon ...
pretty pink playing cards...
and these fairy tale playing cards unopened
and in a decorated red box finished off my BIG FAT FAIL.
If you haven't made any silly New Years Resolutions like mine
and your'e in area it is definitely worth a visit.
They have an amazing cafe and cake shop too.
I hope you are managing to keep your NYR's better than I am !
