I have always been tempted by the beautiful vintage French linens on offer on EBay- however the cost of shipping to Australia meant that I only ever window shopped.
When I saw this piece of linen and cotton ticking up for offer I just couldn't resist it- and shipping to the UK is not quite so scary.
Perfect for making a present for a new baby due to arrive next week - heavy and textured, yet with a lovely soft handle.
I've had the fabric for a while and a vague idea of what I wanted to do with it.
At last I have cut into the fabric and started to stitch. I'm still not quite sure where it is headed but I am enjoying watching the design slowly appear stitch by stitch.
Unplanned yet thoughtful;patterns taking shape under my fingers almost without me having to think about it.
Not the way I usually work at all.
I like it.
