Having a bit of a nostalgia kick at the moment. I found some gorgeous fabric featuring the whimsical characters of the English artist Mabel Lucie Attwell. I vaguely remember having some old books around of hers when I was a tiny tot. Something like this one –
God, I’m old!
Anyway, I found some fabric that has some of her little creatures on it and, although I don’t often do cutesy, I couldn’t resist the wave of nostalgia that swept over me like a tidal wave of cherubs and pixies and elves and fat-cheeked moppets, so I have made one of my étui boxes and one of my fabric tubbies from it and let that be an end to it!!
Right, I think that’s got the ‘cute’ out of my system.
