Remembering Mabel Lucie Attwell (1879-1964)

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.
