I do Love a good Boot Fair!

I haven't done a boot fair in a while, so was really pleased with my seemingly random 'haul' above. It all cost under £5, which I think makes it quite a successful trip!
I think the most 'relevant' pieces to a blog that is supposed *ahem* to be about my work are these two completed tapestry canvases. I love, love, LOVE tapestry and these reminded me of a pair of 'Embroidery' chairs by the young Swedish designer Johan Lindsten. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with these yet, but I'm sure I'll show you when I do.
Check out this link - Lindsten's quite a cutie! ;)
My next favourite item is this Pirate fuzzy felt set! 34 years old and still playing with fuzzy felt....
It will make a nice addition to the 'Wall of Pirate' (which I still haven't written about) so that's my excuse for buying it, and I'm sticking to it!
Other items included two brand new bandannas, which will be used for fabric as they are pretty much Fat Quarter size, not bad for 20p each, and a rather interesting 1923 novel by Colette called 'Ripening Seed', about the coming-of-age of two teenagers one summer in Brittany.
I also picked up Slash's autobiography, because I LOVED Guns n' Roses as a teenager (still do), and it gives me an excuse to sign off with this picture:
Have a Great Bank Holiday Weekend! I'm off to put the kettle on.....
