Latest Fair Isle

I can't believe I have done two in two months !! this one is ready to be backed , just have to do the over locking on the back seams , the rest is all done by hand , that way I have control as wool moves about on a machine and it is difficult to get nice sharp joins. In this cold weather I have been happy to be in front of the fire with a good radio 4 show on the radio. I may even do another before spring! I have enough sweaters.

simple pleasures

What could be nicer , tea in front of the fire and this lovely little linen tea cloth with it's circle of embroidered flowers to remind you of summer days to come.
Embroidered cloths come in many guises , The stitch work on this one is just beautiful , she obviously loves her daisies as much as I do !
Anyway this delightful little piece of linen is priced at £10 and will be among the selection we will be carrying at the up coming events
