Anyone who knows me can tell what a great choice this is for me - the Lily of the Valley flowers remind me of May 1st here in France, and the blue roses are something of a trademark for this blog, I think. Ashley, I am delighted - thanks so much!
The handkerchief came with one of Ashley's own creations - this excellent button-design card. I'm afraid the central button was smashed in the post, Ashley! But the design of the little buttons and dots is still great, and I'm really pleased to have something you've made, after months of looking at photos of your work. Below, you can see my PIF purse, made with vintage European and Chinese textiles.So here we are again, having had a wonderful time in Edinburgh, and now looking forward to a week of work on windowframes and other outdoor woodwork.I think the boys will be very glad of the pool while their parents do boring things with sandpaper and 'lasure'!
