And her second gift-fabric is on the left, above, next to a heart made from some vintage patchwork that I finally dared to cut up and turn into something! I think the mixture of new, vintage-style fabrics with actual vintage 1930s and 1980s (!!) material works well.
The leaf on this heart is from a 1980s necklace of mine and the ribbon was a gift from Sarah at Red Gingham.
Here's a glass/plastic button with some vintage tape. For another bloggy connection, the shape of the hearts is based on some fantastic repurposed shirt-fabric hearts that Maria from Me and Ma sent me in a swap!
Another pressed-glass button on the other side.
For extra marks (what marks???), can you guess why a corner of one of Ben's planting trays appears in these photos?
And thanks so much for your kind comments yesterday - I'm feeling a lot better today.
