Frome Artisan Market

8 Aug

We went to Frome at the weekend in the camper van. Every first Sunday of the month they have a fantastic market it fills the town. There were food stalls, craft stalls and a flea market. It was fantastic and is obviously very popular as there were loads of people there.

Vintage

13 Jul

I am a bit of a collector and really love anything retro or vintage, when I saw this child’s sewing machine on Ebay I had to have it to add to my vintage sewing collection. Isn’t it fabulous, I think I could probably get it to work, it just needs a needle.

 

It is sitting on a little set of drawers that I rescued from a skip at the Museum where I work. I will be putting them both to good use as props for images to go on my Trixie Lixie website when it launches in a couple of weeks.

 

Spotty Knickers

7 Jul

Today I made some spotty knickers, after making the French knickers I thought I would give ordinary pants a go, they were surprisingly easy once I had worked out the pattern pieces.
