We set out in search of blankets

and came home with:

One moon map, one hand painted jug from A.E. Gray, Stoke on Trent, three white cotton sheets, one large cotton cushion cover (habitat), one shovel, various soldering tools, bag of assorted stuff (10p, irresistible), one linen dress, one very comfortable twirly chair,

shopping 2

one map – Dacca to Alice, one large white damask tablecloth,

two 1950’s Shell posters with paintings by John Nash and  Keith Grant,

chair 2

a lot of books and a reel of tickets.

Thank you to the retiring US serviceman having a yard sale; I brought your chair from under you and I am loving it!

Living in East Anglia with my family and sewing machine I cover empty surfaces with scraps of fabric, search for treasure at Emmaus and the Red Cross jumble sales and take immense pleasure from making freehand machine embroidered textiles for the curious and discerning.
