Was just about to cut up these old slippers for the blue lining fabric but they have had a stay of execution!

Strictly Threads

Have been sorting out colours to start a new wool embroidery project tonight in front of a marathon Strictly Come Dancing feast. Good to have a  lap based sewing project in the festive period.

My £5 dress

I bought this silk dress for £5 at a market. It was scrunched up into a plastic bag  with a label "suitable for making dolls clothes). Yes its in tatters but beautiful and the label inside dates it to pre-1914.
