it's high time that 'Lampshade of the Month: March' was well underway but by the end of last week, shortly after setting myself a grand task of writing 'Traditional Lampshade Making: The Sequel', i found that even a whole shelf full of fabriccy treasures can leave a soul sapped of all creative courage.
now was not the time to be in crafty doldrums, so i left Mr H in charge of Saturday morning activities and pottered off to Devizes where the The Vintage Bazaar was happening at the Corn Exchange. i spent a very satisfactory two hours rummaging through Donna Flower's splendid display of vintage fabrics. and, naturally, i brought one or two treasures home.
creative courage restored, bursts of inspiration popping anew and March's Lampshade of the Month on it's way. phew
here's a little preview...
