Fabric Houses

I was in Bath this weekend for my friend Helen’s Hen do. It was a crafty affair with a jewellery making session at The Makery followed by a little shopping. First in the patchwork shop I picked up a half meter piece of this great house fabric. It’s going to become either a bag, a […]

Season's Greetings
