A little bowl of roses … silk and taffeta and chiffon corsages in glorious crimsons and purples, delicate rosebud clips in patterned cotton for a touch of full-blown summer romance.
Fabric corsages - summer roses in shades of red
Soft-toned taupe and palest chocolate lace makes beautiful necklaces. An ethnic-style crochet necklet on a vintage amber-glass beaded necklace, embellished with amber-glass droplets, a soft lace choker with a tiny antique clock-key at the throat, and a bolder piece of tawny lace on a matching yellow beaded chain … perfect against sun-kissed skin on long summer evenings.

After spending most of January on the Anthriscus project, it’s down to work with a vengeance now – I’ve got a table at a small local craft fair in May, and Flora Lou needed more stock from me. Bags is what I like ….
1) Primula Tote
This first one is a straightforward tote – recycled denim jeans in a square patchwork design, mixed with a vintage floral chintz upholstery, lined with an old cotton check shirt – the colours just worked perfectly! Fill it up with everything and take it anywhere ….
2) Anemone small tote
Almost a log cabin … the central flower came from my vintage upholstery sample stash, and the outer is recycled canvas drill, the same front and back, lined with the salvageable parts of a pale gold antique linen table cloth. It’s just *so* pretty! I love this … I might make a variation on the design as a cushion cover as well.
