ANTIQUE TEXTILES FAIR

 Sunday saw me at the Antique Textile Fair in Manchester with craft friend Susan.  I snapped up some bargains, some to use on my Alchemy online course with Contemporary Embroider Karen Ruane and also for the new course I am starting with her on the 18th March - Embroider, Embellish, Create.
The pink card of buttons I am going to frame and also the pretty lace mat bottom right.
The blue bits and pieces are to use on the apron I am currently working on. Stayed tuned for the results.  I got lots of trims and trayclothes to use on the new course as well.  The fabric top right was off Heather Lawson of Hellish Designs.  You may remember Heather from the lamps and linen shades Ive had off her in the past. 
 Best bit was I came home with some change so I might pop over to the secondhand market at Todmorden on Thursday as I havent been for a while.
