And on the Washing Line this week......................



A selection of newly acquired textiles this week includes a David Whitehead pair of curtains, "Mosques" design, slightly damaged, but still plenty of fabric to work with.


Funky French Children's fabric called "Billy Boy", love the colours in this one! Still on a Children's theme are these 1970's Action Man curtains.

Lots of vibrant 1950's colours and some great graphics.

The piece below is towelling, the colours being as crisp as the day they were new, over 50 years ago.


Another towelling item, this time a pair of much loved (and slightly faded) Swan design bathroom curtains.

Rose design bedroom curtains, also dating from the 1950's.


Lastly a snippet of a large bolt of dress fabric. It is hard to put a date to this, but it is certainly very eye catching. Most of these items will be coming with me to the Vintage and Handmade fair in Chipping Sodbury on Saturday. Open from 10 am to 4 pm. Hope to see you there!
