I love linen, plain linen is great, but I especially love printed linen and specially especially linen printed with spots. This one is gorgeous and just the colours I love to use. I feel a fabric covered sewing box coming on.
I am going to start going to my sewing group again this year – I got out of the habit and must re-start it because it is so good for my French – and if I do all the cutting and icky sticky stuff for the box at home I can do the hand sewing bit whilst serenely chatting over an herbal infusion with the group. Well, actually, I make them get in Earl Grey for me as it is my concession to ‘different’ tea but they all seem to prefer weird fruit or herbal concoctions. I mean, honestly, no milk!
In the meantime, I had exhausted my stock of coffee sack owls so I made another one. This one is a Java Type. I must be getting a bit Valentine Dayish because I felt the urge to give him heart shaped buttons for eyes.
There is an ‘e’ after that ‘p’ but it seems to have disappeared into his little owl bot.
