I can’t resist a thread box full of colour, especially when it’s a box full of embroidery threads. I came across these beauties at a charity shop and of course a large handful came home with me.
I find fabric and vintage are the perfect combination.
One of my weekly trips to town, includes a wander around a selection of favourite charity shops. I can’t resist anything fabric or vintage, so when this lovely fabric was spotted peaking out from the corner of a rummage basket, I was in like a shot to retreive it.
What a Find… it came home with me.
It was quite a large piece of fabric and very draped beautifully. I held it up to me and realised there was enough to make a tunic dress!

I spotted the wonderful Tim Holtz demonstrating at a recent trade show, CHSI
He’s the font of knowledge when it comes to all mixed media. A warm and very generous man who is happy to share all he knows about his art – and he knows a lot !
Are you a fan Tim Holtz?
I’m a long time Stitcher and have only recently discovered his work.
I love his paper based art and find the cross over into fabric based surface design quite exciting.
