Now All I Have to Do is Start Sewing...
I have had a little splurge recently and bought some striped Oakshott cottons.
Here is the whole selection, half a metre of each. There were two reasons for snapping them up.
Firstly, they are being discontinued, and there is very little left. They are hand woven in India, and the colours are too beautiful for words.
I kept wondering what this one reminded me of, and then I realised it was the field round the corner. Shame the sun wasn't out.
Secondly, I am at the advanced planning stage for a big quilt. Advanced planning is the grandiose term for having finished it in my head but not actually started it yet. I know exactly what I am going to do, which colours I am going to use, and I even bought some backing material and wadding today, so things are getting serious.
