So what have I been doing at Rag Rescue today you might ask.
Well apart from wrapping orders, posting them and answering emails, I have -
Cut out ready to photograph
10 scrappy parcels and 40 scrapbags
That was 200 pieces of scraps for the scrappy parcels
160 pieces of fabric for the scrapbags.
Now I just have to cut 40 pieces of card for the scrapbags and I can
begin photographing all of them. tomorrow.
Me thinks I had better go and get my own ironing done then, as it is piled high.
Don't forget to put the clocks back so that you can have an extra hour in bed, that is if your children or dogs will let you.
Don't forget from tomorrow morning items will be listed at 7am GMT

Four more lovely pieces of French fabric for your sewing projects. All at the Rag Rescue website tomorrow.
I thought I would create a Christmas mood board today as it gives viewers an idea of what vintage fabrics and embellishments there are on the website that could be used for Christmas crafts.
Finally I would like to send my sympathy to everyone in Ireland who are living through the terrible floods there.

After three days of putting everything back into my lounge after decorating it, I am really pleased to be able to sit at the computer all day pre-listing lovely items for you to have a look at.
Above you can see some wonderful vintage embroidered motifs that would look great embellished onto a jumper, cushion, bag or indeed any of your crafting projects. They will all appear on the
Rag Rescue website tomorrow morning. Grab them while you can because when they are gone they are gone.

As I'm writing this blog post we are having a terrible storm, gusting winds and hail and apparently a thunderstorm is on its way. We've battened down the hatches and switched the heating on, Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

There is nothing more difficult for a truly creative painter than to paint a rose, because before he can do so he has first to forget all the roses that were ever painted.
I w3as so tired last night that I forgot to list this post.
On the Rag Rescue website there are four more vintage fabric scrappy parcels listed today.
Each scrappy parcel has 20 pieces of vintage fabric off cuts with lots of new fabrics that haven't been seen on the site before.
