 Since Christmas I have been doing lots of dying; lots and lots of it! Bits of lace trim, Broderie Anglaise, Suffolk Puffs, Irish crochet, linen sheets, pieces of quilted bedcover, silk ribbons, old tablecloths, French linen smocks, petticoats; you name it, it's all got thrown in together.
The clothes, tablecloths and some of the larger linen pieces will be sold as they are, but with all of the smaller offcuts, ribbons, and lace trims etc I have been putting together little selection bundles......

 Priced between £5 and £15 pounds they make a lovely gift for any textile enthusiast who loves to sew little projects.

This afternoon I will be re-arranging the shop ready for Easter, with new Spring cushions,
 lovely linens,
and pretty pearl jewellery.

Upstairs I have created a comfortable dressing area where you can try on our ever-expanding range of interesting clothes; a mixture of second-hand pieces, dyed French linen smocks, vintage petticoats and hand-printed Indian indigo cottons.

Snowy Lane

 The snow we had a couple of weeks ago was blizzard-like and not at all pleasant to be out in, but today the snow came floating down in huge flakes and coated everything with an icing so perfect, it was a fairytale.
 I took a walk down the lane where I live, and looked over the gates into fields of whiteness.
 Such a lovely feeling came over me as I walked and marvelled at the beauty of it all; every leaf and branch coated in its own little blanket of snowflakes.
