on your marks, get set…


image: linen + ric rac

So if you’ve been reading my blog for a while you will no doubt be aware of my love of linen. I adore working with it so for me, today was a happy day as my linen order arrived. Natural linen, two weights, metres and metres of it, can’t wait to cut into it. I also received a birthday parcel from my folks and wound around the gifts was more ivory ric rac that I girl will ever need. It will last me years – yep, there’s that much of it! Need to conjure up a linen and ric rac design pretty sharpish!

So, with all of my supplies in place, tomorrow I start making for the final Martinborough Fair on the 1st March. Deadlines work well for me – I start and I don’t stop until the day. Nothing else gets done, emails don’t get written and friends are neglected but it’s just for a short period of time so they tend to forgive me. So as from tomorrow, it’s head down, regular life on hold and no stopping until the 1st!

Until next time…

  2. Oh so nice! I don’t know which is more exciting – the linen (in two weights!!) or the lovely ivory ric rac – together they are just perfect. Can’t wait to see what you create with them 🙂 Happy Birthday too!!

    I am a huge linen fan also. I used have lots of shirts, pants and skirts in linen. I have tried a few things on in linen recently, but they feel horrid and scratchy. I need ultra soft, vintage linen. xxx
