september nineteen

Today I finished this cross-stitch. I'm planning on giving it to a friend, but I'm not sure if I'm happy with it yet. Maybe I'll make another!
I love looking at the colours all organised (ignore the messy ones).

I'm undecided on how to frame it also at the moment also. hmmmmmm.

september twelve

Today was the Vintage Textiles fair. It was great, but I had to power shop as it filled up quickly with frantic women and the bargins dried up. I picked up a few cheap things from my wishlist:

a sweet doily for my dressing table $5

a cream blouse $10

a pretty cotton apron $8

and a minty green chiffon and lace nightie $18
It was fun, but I still prefer to buy things from op shops instead of vintage dealers.
Just once a year however, I'll splash out at the fair on some cute things.
