I got this far before the new academic year kicked off, lets not talk about that .... hmmmmm.
I am loving fussy cutting some of the fabrics I bought in Japan, the above pussy cat is taken from some ten inch squares I bought in the fabric district in Tokyo, I had the most amazing day there and can still see the shop I bought this from.
I used the time in between Christmas and new year to finally hang my silk quilt in my home office, none of your virtual background for me!! And it’s a good use for the quilt which Is totally impractical for anything else! And it makes me look like I’m in a throne room!
Well!! Lovely Ruth rabbit showed her true colours! We thought she was all modest but when budthepuppy showed her his latest liberty haul from duck egg threads she came over all louche!!
Not only showed off her liberty paw ....
But her ankle!! We had to press a damp flannel to budthepuppy forehead!
It’s been a liberty kind of month ! I have been looking out for this book for Its Japanese and is a big compendium of most of the liberty designs, all written in Japanese but it gives you the whole fabric range (mostly) but also date of release etc. It’s just so beautiful.
Take care, the next time I furtle I will have been well and truly vaccinated!!
