I had a brilliant trip to Toulouse on Thursday with bride-to-be Bev#1 (who loves fabric and old stuff as much as I do) and Welsh Bev#2 ( who comes from the same South Welsh valleys as my Mother’s family). There are photos of this event which I may yet post.
Down an alley way (with the above treasure of a balcony on one side) one finds the fabulous fabric and sewing stuff chain “Toto”which is a veritable treasure trove of needful things. I bought some embroidered cream cotton for curtains and ribbon for some cushion covers I am making which will be at least 50% antique, vintage or recycled fabrics ( mainly French) and hopefully on etsy by tomorrow evening.
They might have been finished today , but I randomly ended up doing the following:-
- Making up some Magic Mix to attach a scallop shell moulding
- Writing the last chapter of my debut book aimed at 9-14 year olds and set here in Occitanie, much of which was once known as Septimanie https://www.britannica.com/place/Septimania
- Sewing a door curtain for the terrace bedroom from natural cotton/linen canvas and grape crushed taffeta. Yes it’s one of my refined rustic juxtapositions. If you beg I will take photos……….. but for now here are the unfinished cushion covers
