1990 'Exclusive vintage material'......

If anyone has seen photos of my studio shed or visited it - they will recognize this material immediately.

I was surprised to find that I hadn't recycled the left over pieces of the 1990 exclusively designed and copyrighted material which I found in a charity shop and used to make some (rather basic) curtains for outside in my 'shed'.

It's funny how you look at things a different way when you start a new hobby isn't it.

Before this material was just a bit of 'tat' now the small pieces I have left are a new found treasure.

A close up of a piece of the large inside pocket - to try and show you the gold 'paint' they pattern on it. It was that which attracted me to the material in the first place - and the price of course.

Whereas before the material was just means of a draft excluder and to keep the sun out - now I see it in a whole new light.

It's pretty and bright - and original - and I really like the way that the gold catches the light - it didn't need any other embellishing except the dainty vintage lace from Very Mary.

You might get a better idea of the gold if you click you enlarge.
