Walking on Sunshine

Yesterday at St Lawrence Sunday Market, it was an OK day, despite that Woofstock was in progress and some streets were closed.
I sold the pretty 1930s pink quilt you see hanging on the left, what you can't see is the thick white embroidery on the large squares. Also said goodbye to the 50s mink wrap.

Yellow is not my very favorite color.... but I seem to be surrounded by it these days.
Some vintage fabrics at my stall yesterday.

I have started to photograph blanket labels that go through my hands, I even have a new flickr section and will just add as I go along.

Thick seeds on the pine trees at the cabin, love the textures.

and a jaunty polka dot Liberty scarf just picked up at the thrift store, not sure which era, 70s perhaps. Makes a change from the usual floral.

I'm starting to be very fond of yellow....

Update...went to check Etsy Treasuries 2 minutes after I posted this and found one of my quilts featured in Taxi Cab Yellow....
I like yellow even more now!


  1. You have such great taste in fabrics..The items you sold were treasures..is it easy to part with yours?

  2. I'm so glad you are taking pics of old blanket labels...I have seen some lovely ones, well worth "cataloging"
    Your fabrics are beautiful...even the yellow ones!

  3. hiya
    I just love your blog, so informative & beautiful pictures & textiles
    Who loves yellow too

  4. Lovely photos, thank you for sharing. Yellow Liberty is lovely♥

  5. I think its a great idea to take pics of the blanket labels, and even give your customers info on the blanket maker, year etc... <congrats on your sales and on the etsy treasury.

  6. I love yellow.
    I have stopped fairs at the moment and am just concentrating on my unit, as the expense of paying £40-£60 for rent and the same for fuel, with low takings was becoming silly. I hope things pick up for you.

  7. Hi, I found your blog through Barbara Muir and LOVE it! Unfortunately i am in Europe and can't come by your stand on the markets, but I will definitely visit here sometimes.

  8. I'm with you on the yellow Jan. Though I do like a muted buttercup or a mustard yellow (also referred to by Peg, my biz partner, as Baby Barf yellow)!

  9. Sounds like you had a successful market. Your quilts are lovely, as are your vintage fabrics!
    Just love the vintage blanket labels - theres something about old labels!
    Scarf is great - yellow is cheerful.
