Finding more and more of my photographs being used elsewhere lately - that no pin code thing is clearly no good! Here is an interesting page that has used a photograph of my cushions - that had found there way to you know where - with no link to here of course! Nice that someone else gets the credit......just in case here are my cushions in their proper setting - home! I shall leave this sitting here for a while and ponder....
So I am rather partial to a nice bit of patchwork....and a nice old tin to go with it... of course
Really - you too! Now there's a surprise....
It is interesting to 'read' old patchwork don't you think? I have some 1950s bits that have pieced using the problems page of a 'woman's magazine' - all a bit surreptitious with implied meaning throughout.
This is from 70s do you think - a bit more of a cheery read - Kleenex and Cornflakes!
The pieces above I particularly like - much larger pieces from the late 40s possibly?
Anyway a nice bit of clashiness going on
I have made cushions out of some of this though there is a limit as to how many cushions one person can use in ones lifetime. I might make some shopping bags out of the rest
Please note that these tins do not feature in the 'Tons of Tins' post - these are patchwork tins, not haberdashery tins.
I do like a bit of colour...
Can you tell that I couldn't decide which photographs to eliminate from the post so there are too many....
Sorry for delay in Weekend Bag tutorial - sewing machine hitch - ditto with giveaway post.....normal service is not resumed....
PS: Have you turned the heating on yet? The BIG debate
PPS: Did you watch 'The Fabric of Britain' this week?
PPPS: Did you watch 'Science Britannica' this week?
PPPPS: Did you watch 'The Great British Bake Off'? We would like Ruby to win because we think that she is nice.
PPPPPS: Watching more telly than usual as we hunker down for the season in front of the fire
PPPPPPS: I have got the lids to these tins!!!
PPPPPPPS: The book - 'The Custards - my life in tin' - is coming on a treat: full of laughs and jolly japes in the world of tin. Who knew!
PPPPPPPPS: I wish that I had thought of 'Jolly Good Fellow' that is a pleasing wheeze that I enjoyed muchly.
PPPPPPPPPS: The book - 'The Custards - my life in tablecloths' - is not so pleasing to write - full of stains and jam droppage. Not so many laughs in that one sadly.
