As so often happens I have bitten off a little more than I can chew at the moment, but it is good to be busy so must not grumble. Just posting a little update on those printed purses. I was sent a scan of an envelope to make into a Mother's Day gift - it shows the address of where a friend's mother grew up as a child (as addresses are in the public domain and she no longer lives there I hope it is ok). I printed this onto some lovely vintage double damask fabric. The photographs do not show the damask that well but I love how the lustre floral pattern is 'revealed' in certain lights.
I had to sift through a fair bit of fabric to find the right matching blue that I knew I had in the house somewhere. Interesting that the postmark is for the Olympics held in that year - what goes around comes around.
I am considering setting up an on-line shop called 'Printed Purses R Us' - though that might 'lower the tone' do you think???? (um - that was me trying to be funny!)
Thank you as always for your kind words - I will be back!
