Goodness me, such a long time has elapsed again. Let's see what's been going on in the last few weeks? Well, we no longer have a child attending junior school. Eeek, as from September, the Munchkin will be a senior school boy. Times flies, oh yes indeedy. He was thrilled to see the new garden furniture arrive in a gigantic cardboard box the other day and since, he's been busy building his own den in the garden. I'm so pleased he still wants to spend his time doing this sort of thing and…

Friday evening. I do love a Friday evening. Well, if I am honest, I love certain Friday evenings. The ones where I am sat in queues on the M25, M3 and A303 as we head West are not that thrilling; it is the thought of what lies ahead the following day that keeps me going. Waking up in that dinky little thatched cottage, Gertrude Jekyll roses blooming round the eyebrow window, the promise of a day vintage treasure seeking in Bridders. That's what it is. Friday evenings like todays, I'm rather…

Dee's Doodles

...because it really isn't "goodbye". My sweet mom went home on June 12th. We were blessed with nine and a half years with her after her initial diagnosis of Stage IV Ovarian Cancer. Last November we were given some very bad news about treatment options after all this time. There really weren't a lot left. She fought on with chemo and radiation right up until the end. Her spirit was stronger than her body though and this last round of double-dose chemo was too much and she started…

Vintage Linens Dresden Plate Quilt

My dresden plate quilt is done! This is made with my favorite vintage linens. It measures 24' x 26" and is meant to be a wall hanging in my beloved sewing room. I'm a little shocked at the length of time it took me to complete this relatively tiny quilt, but I've decided not to dwell on it and to just love it anyway. : ) The dresden plate is sewn down with a straight-line seam on white fabric. The outside is quilted with free-motion swirls. Have I mentioned how much I love these fabrics? The…

Cleaning Vintage Linens

An Antique Linen Dealer shared her secret with me, over 25 years ago, for cleaning vintage linens. This was before Oxygen cleaners and many spot treatments were readily available. I would try the newer ones first. If they do not work, this has worked for me. Please note, always test a small area first. If you are happy with the results, proceed with caution, at your own risk.

Hanky Panky

There's an attention grabbing title for you! I'm sorry, I couldn't resist. So what feels like waaay back, last week in fact at the cottage, I started a new quilt. Oh happy days, it's that delicious giddy feeling of being free of other projects and feeling without guilt that you can start something new. The dining room was about to become my country Den. I've had in my stash for ages, this range of fabrics by Wyndham called "The Hankie Club". It consists of a printed panel and many…
