Its coming along

Its taking time but if i rush it i tend to make mistakes.
The patchwork sofa is coming along , The most difficult part for me next is  the seat pad covers  , I  am  going to unpick the originals and have a go at them over the next week .
 I dont know if i will manage the piping or not but i will have a go. I dyed the Antique lace on the top of the cushion with tea bags .  

 All the fabric so far is stuff i have picked up from jumble sales and its not cost any more than £20 , I think you will either love it or hate it.   







Just two vintage finds this week.

I am always one step in front , This tea set was picked up recently and will go in my kitchen when it has a new lick of paint in the summer.   


This medal was in a box of jewellery i purchased , Rare to find one in its original  box.

  2. I had been wondering how you were doing. Its coming along well and I like your choice of colours. There are some good tutorials on You Tube and also links on Pinterest to help with making of the piping. Even I have not had a go at that yet but having a visual would help me more so I assume it would help you too. Looks really good, individual and a way to making the most of what you have. Love it. And well done with the cushion too. Look forward to the next instalment; and love the china. Take care.

  3. Love, love, love it! Well done you. Piping is simple to make and attach. A YouTube tutorial is a good idea if you are unsure. Xx

  4. Not sure how rare that WW1 medal is as I have my late uncle's WW1 medals in their original box, too.

  8. Thanks tracy , I surprised myself with the patience bit too but am conquering it with doing a bit at a time instead of my usual bull in a china shop xxx
