Tea time............




My vintage and modern cups




 New place mat ideas


Printing onto vintage fabric


 Two 
obsessions
food and the written word............... they are bound together in my mind like a cake recipe..... ha ha...
Now what am I going to make with my newly printed vintage fabric........any suggestions most gratefully received.
Love to you all....... I think we are in for a sunny week xxxxxxx

Food - now there's a good idea! Think I'll go and eat some right now.
How have you done the printing on the fabric shown? It's quite delightful.

So original, and beautifully done! I can see your fabrics as aprons. The placemats are a great idea, too...I love them!

Lynn, I just love the printed fabric.....maybe some little cup mats or a cozy for the teapot......a shopping bag...not sure, I think I just love to look at it the way it is! Looks like summer will be nice and warm.

Oh Lynn,
More beautiful photographs of beautiful things to feast my eyes on.
I wouldn't begin to suggest anything as I think that you are far better at that than me !!
Hope you are well and I look forward to a sunny week. It's about time and Wimbledon starts tomorrow. XXXX

Funny you mention cake recipe! I'm off to bake a chocolate cake at this moment!

But I'm afraid the tea is iced for us today! Way too hot to move here.

Hello lovely Lynn
Your creations are always so very lovely.
Maybe you could incorporate your printed fabric into a tablecloth - it could be patchwork, or applique'd on to a linen cloth?
They'd also look wonderful as curtains, as part of an apron, or simply lovely cushion covers :-)
Oh the possibilities are endless!
Wishing you happy sunny days,

Whenever I see old fabric like this, I always think of old flour sacks and their creative conversion into a child's simple dress.

Beautiful prints on vintage fabric; why make anything at all? they are fabulous and stand alone as images; think banners or framing. Perhaps?
