There has been a bit of excitement around the Cottage for the last few days.
We heard our scarf samples were on their way.
We were a bit nervous, Dell was waiting on her patchwork woodies and I on my tapestry goodies and with digital printing there is always a bit of fear.
They are stunning.
They were printed on a heavy-ish scarf weight silk satin and they glow and shimmer. They have wonderful drape and these ones are a huge 130cm square (there is also a few 90cm ones) but are really easy to wear. Dell and I had multiple scarves looped around our necks and they are just beautiful.
And we sold one as we were unpacking them!
I've got 3 tapestry designs, including the one we've nicknamed 'Bree' as the original tapestry was borrowed from the lovely Bree of Mr Kitly fame, the big floral and the country cottage. The edges are all hand rolled and really they are just completely LUSH!
Hopefully Dell will get a chance to post photos of her designs very soon. I think a couple may be heading into the final week of her show at Westspace. Woody good indeed!
