Piece Yourself Together time
As always, many thanks to Anthea for hosting this linky. Pop over to Anthea's blog to see her almost completed, beautiful table runner and to find out what everyone else has been doing.
I am pleased to say that I actually have something positive to share with you all today!
I was looking for a small hand sewing project to work on over Easter and remembered these hexies that I had sewn together in Spain with the vague idea of making a project folder with them.
I also remembered a piece of Jenny of Elefantz embroidery that I worked a couple of years ago which has been sitting around waiting for a project.
And so I put them together and I now have the outside of my project folder!
Now I need to think about how I am going to finish off the inside - how many pockets I want etc. Hopefully it will not be too long until I can show you the finished folder.
While we were in England we visited Arlington Court in North Devon and I spotted this coverlet in one of the bedrooms.
It was made in the early 19th century and the hexagons are 3/4". Sadly, as you will see from the close up, many of the fabrics have started to disintegrate.
I should imagine that many of the fabrics have faded too. However, it was lovely to see it out on the bed as it had spent many years in a drawer before it was discovered.
I am also linking up with Super Mom No Cape and her
