Fabric Finds

I've seen so many nice sewing projects online, so I decided to give a try myself. One of the first couple of things on the shopping list is: FABRIC.

Mooooooooooo. It was found in M√ľnster, Germany. There are two lovely fabric shops and a cross stitch shop in the city centre. All are great. It's a pity that I don't live nearby.


This is for my 2 years daughter. I worried it might be too childish soon. But I can't resist the little mousy.

Fabric from Bremen with the city symbol

French fabric in red and blue. It was found on holiday in France, thanks to the car breaking down. I've been the shop 3 times. Finally the shop opened.

A bargain. Only 50cents(euro). I got it from a fabric museum which was an old German fabric plant. It will be easily made to a tea towel.

Dayout - German Village Museum

We have been out on German National Day (3 Oct) to a small village museum. It's free entry but with some good collections. I especially like the handcraft items.

Cross stitch samplers


This linen cupboard is my favorite. Have a look at the lavender bag, the pile with ribbon. It does so much for morale. I can't image how popular it would be if these things are on the vintage market.


Some details. Luckily, I have the pattern of the alphabet.




Embroidery

At last, it is the photo made at the museum entry. Is it very autumn?
