Weekend Stitching

Saturday was a lovely stitching day at Heather’s home; we enjoyed delicious afternoon tea with special William Morris plates, all set out on a beautiful cloth….

    I’ve loved everything in this post!!! Lovely linens, that coat is gorgeous, such beautiful edges and pocket!! I wish I could attend your woolly bits days.

  3. I’m on gorgeousness overload! Beautiful old linens, wonderful food, excellent sewing, serious tin envy ……. but the best thing is the coat!! It is fabulous – the pockets are so elegant, and I love the collar.
    Oh – and I have to mention the Wooly Bits – you know that I love them!
