Loving the vintage vibe!

Here's where I'll share my obsession with vintage fabric! It's taking over my house!

I'll sharing with you my favorite fabrics, my 'adventures" in dressmaking using vintage patterns, some home furnishing ideas and no doubt I'll be telling you about any exciting finds! Love to hear about your vintage adventures too!

My first Shop was AudreysCat ( online shop May 2010) , but my new logo / name - WittyDawn , arrived Jan 2014.

I hope you'll have time to browse my shops too !

Cheered me up!

Well It's been a long unproductive week or so as I've had this grotty cold/cough ....and I don;t function well on only 5 hours broken sleep a night. My Twitter buddies will have become familiar with my hate: hate relationship with 'Chesty' the cough. Yes he has been hanging around long enough to develop a personality - think Father Jack from Father Ted - a very apt suggestion from Twitter buddy @hhjtinygems (psstt...follow her she's lovely)

BUT BUT BUT this has made me smile every time I walk into the room. Finally got this framed thanks to some birthday pennies from Mum. Itsn't it just fab ! jealous much....?

70's Carousel Horse Wall Hanging!

I am finally getting this fabric made into a Wall Hanging - Ta! Mum for some birthday pennies for this.

Each horse is about 30 cm high and the total size will be over 1 m squared - I have a very retro room for it to go in - 70's sideboard, orange feature wall etc.!

There be a bit left over which I might use for a cushion or a feature panel on a bag or two ( one for me, one for sale ? maybe...)
