Dressing Up -

My workroom window has been unadorned until now. 
I gathered my dyeing samples together,
added fabric from a kantha shirt (which I bought for Hugh on India trip no. 1 but which was far too short for him),
and some from dark blue cotton/linen trousers which survived both trips and owed me nothing. 
Large patches were soon stitched up, and I backed it with a lightweight thermal curtain lining. Chuffed with result.

Also chuffed with Hugh for baking a stollen-type bread for our Christmas breakfast!

Peace and happiness

In the face of so much suffering, near to home and far around this unsettled world, many of us have such a lot to be grateful for.

Thank you to friends, neighbours, acquaintances, even a few family who see my posts here, for the love and laughs and good cheer through the year. 
And to all the delightful textile-inspired visitors to my various stalls who have stopped to talk and buy my products, thank you too.
May you enjoy the festivities over the next wee while and have a safe and peaceful 2015.
