It's going to take me some time to dismantle all those shirts, blouses and skirts but this selection of purples is a start. The one second from the right is a pale turquoise and white with a really pretty sparkly mid purple over check - very sweet. More colours as the scissors allow
When we were away last week I went into one of those touristy shops in Hay-on-Wye and spotted some very simple stuffed fabric hanging hearts made from a single pretty flowered fabric with a hanging ribbon and a little button and bow in the notch of the heart. These spectacularly simple hearts were retailing for £10.50 (about $20) - yes that took my breath away too. Of course as is always the case it's whatever the market will stand regarding pricing, and Hay does get a lot of affluent London weekenders particularly in May for its famous Literature Festival, but I brought home the idea.
On Friday I made one for Nigel's little niece for her third birthday to slip in with her presents - there's no photo of this as the camera was with him and I needed to catch the post. However Louise then said those immortal words - "That's nice, I'd really like one of those Mummy........"
So here's her own particular little bit of nonsense. What a great way to use up all those bits of wadding I've been saving after cutting away the surplus before binding quilts - can't we always justify hoarding :o)
Quilt group again today so I have to dash to iron some more leaves and tulips to take with me for my table runner ............. see you all later...............
