We've just returned from our Half Term by the sea. Not the usual relaxing week this time, as it was dominated by a stream of deliveries because we've been doing up the cottage. But it was good, much needed, fresh air, not to mention some cracking weather too.
So I've been having a relaxing morning, getting reacquainted with my sewing machine, whilst the smell of steeping elderflowers, brought back from the countryside, pervades the house.
When I found a piece of vintage barkcloth featuring sailing boats and islands I couldn't believe my luck but because the fabric has several different vignettes in the pattern, it's not an easy one to cut into. Trying to get a good square whilst saving other pieces for more projects makes it quite a challenge.
I made a cushion and backed it with my usual antique linen which will be perfect for a room by the sea. All of a sudden I'm there again.
Did you have a lovely week?
