Not everything I buy is perfect, my lovely friends in the Salvation Army often save me things that are well past their best. It doesn't bother me, for a small donation and half-an-hour's labour they're almost as good as new and, as today's been so lovely,I've been able to sit outside and darn in the sunshine.
"Continental" wool turban by Moorcraft of England, sadly munched by moths.
I knew I had some matching wool in my kit.
Restored to it's original 1930s fabulousness.
This piece of crochet was coming apart at the seams.
But with a little patience....
I have another poncho to add to my collection.
Especially for Dora and Sandy here's a bigger picture of yesterday's can-can costume. The top is boned with a lace-up front and the skirt is taffeta with net stiffening and a black and gold lace trim. I've no idea when I'll wear it but I do like to be prepared for any eventuality.
|Victorian bone necklaces (Inherited), denim waistcoat (had forever), 1970s turquoise maxi & peacock feather earrings (The fabulous Helga)|
We've switched Broadband providers and I've been offline for most of today, hopefully I can catch up with all I've missed in Blogland before tonight's jumble sale.
Have a lovely weekend and see you soon.
