Flea Market finds


This week I'm including an ebay purchase as a flea market find. I think anytime you get a bargain on vintage stuff, that has to be included right?! I got a large packet filled with gorgeous vintage embroidery transfers and I can't wait to use them. This is just a small sample of what I got. That deer one is my favourite, it's rather large and I think it will look fabulous worked in red. I have something else coming from this same seller that I am totally in love with and can't wait to get here, hopefully you'll all see it in next weeks Flea Market Finds.

Oh, and it's my birthday today, so my plan is to sit on the couch with my feet up and get stitchin'. Hope you all have a lazy Sunday planned too!
