PollyWhistle Vintage

It's only just starting to become Autumnal and my head is full of Christmas (it's ok to the use the word Christmas in August when you are a maker - honestly). I'm already utterly obsessed with how I am going to display my Angels and patchwork trees, brooches and cards etc at Christmas Fairs, testing out frames and boards and an antique hatstand. In fact so obsessed my dad asked me if I had a problem I wasn't telling him about because I seemed so distracted and ditsy of late!

I'm also working on a whole new range of bags, purses, bunting and other textile treats using the vintage fabrics, lace and table linens I have been collecting over the last year. It's all so exciting that I'm having to work twice as hard as usual not to let it become utter chaos!

And here is one example of how. My brand new, old glass china cabinet. £10 plus a little for the new wallpaper and beeswax polish. A little bit battered and a little bit patched. In other words perfect for me and my vintage fabric stash.

Quick Pics from the Exhibition

It was such a lovely weekend and I am still riding high on the postive feeback and support I received so with much further waffle here are some pictures:

I'm an exhibitionist!

And now that I have your attention, strictly speaking that's not quite accurate but I am showing my work in my first ever solo exhibition. Taking place at a real gem of a space called the Kooroon Gallery in my local area from 10am to 4pm Friday 4th and Saturday 5th August.

It features lots of new work too so I am super excited!
