Happy Monday beautiful people, how was your weekend? Mine was quite inspired. I had a great time at the Summertime Curiosity Bazaar, met some lovely people, got shy, ate many cakes and sold nearly all my Liberty Lavender bags and hand made cards. I have also been colouring my world with vintage french postcards and embroidered linens and as if that wasn’t enough joy in itself for this week, I found a way to get even more out of the tiny slivers of liberty fabric I have left over from my lavender bag making. Scaling down the recipe for a throw pillow from the lovely Granny Chic, I stitched them all together to make these plump and cheery little pincushions. I also hand water coloured a few lace motifs for the central decorations, before popping some quilting pins in the top. The hand cross stitched linen tray cloth in the background is a recent Ebay find that is so pretty, it now has pride of place on my giant chest of drawers.My obsession with Liberty Tana Lawn Cotton has been raging within since I first stepped foot in the store aged 19 on a college trip to London, we were trusted to go to museums but I slipped away from the pack on a one girl excursion that led me to that incredible tudor building that was constructed from the timbers of two ships. Eyes wide with awe I wandered past beautiful clothes and glittering jewellery I couldn’t afford and finally found myself at home in the haberdashery. With fabric beyond my student budget I left with a fancy bag filled with some delicate silk ribbons and a big smile on my face. Now it is the shop I always beeline to when I am leaving the coast for a day and headed in to the city.Today in my sewing basket I have a metre or so of Tatum Blue Liberty Tana Lawn that has been in there for about 6 years, every now and then I use a little piece, but I do find it hard to cut. Buying smaller pieces seems to make it easier as someone else has done the hard part for me. Well, I don’t know about you, but all this talk has made me a little feverish to get up to London as soon as possible!
