Vintage gold …

In the sunshine this morning …
this pair of cushions really started to glow. In the house, of course, they pick up the light from a lamp or through a window so they can shine at any time of the day or night!
I’ve been wanting to make more use of my lovely embroidery machine too and have been working on ideas and designs for a while …
What do you think?
I’m also going to take orders for wedding/anniversary cushions with ‘Mr & Mrs XXXXXXXX’ in the centre. Hope that if you’re in Winchester tomorrow you pop by to say Hello at the Vintage & Retro Market – bring your brolley, it looks like rain until the afternoon at least.
PART TWO – Sunday ::
Oh dear – ‘Bring a brolley.’ That was an understatement of what was needed today! Brollies were blowing inside-out in the gusts, so more drastic measures were called for – snowboots, gloves, multiple pairs of socks, riding mac, huge jumpers, massive rain hat. I was warm enough, and dry too but there were poor souls less well prepared who quite literally, froze. There was a dramatic snowstorm just after midday and that was enough for me I’m afraid. His Nibs in the chariot was summoned and I packed up early. Suffice to say, sales were very few and far between. What bad luck for us all at the Retro market today.
There was lots of interest in personalised wedding cushion presents though. I was also asked if I could make a ‘ring cushion’ and I think I’ve had plenty of cushion practice! It was lovely to see people who’d bought Christmas stockings and to catch up with friends and neighbours who dropped by. It was even more lovely to come home to the snug house, have a hot shower and 2 steaming mugs of tea (definitely a winter mug for today)!
No photos today, but maybe some more in the week. Pop over to Wendy’s Handmade Monday link up to see what everyone’s been up to. Hope the Spring weather returns soon – I miss it!
