I'm a frequent user but objector to the word stuff. I also object to being surrounded by it, but have to balance this against my ingrained instinct to hoard.
However, it turns out one person's stuff is another person's treasure. My Mum used to sew before she had children and when she was clearing out, ridding herself of cupboards of stuff (not opened or used since their last move), she came across this treasure trove of Liberty.
There used to be a Liberty shop in Edinburgh and my Mum picked up some excellent sale purchases sometime in the eighties.
Even the carrier bag has a little flap on it for when it rains!
Yes, that's right - three metres of Liberty goodness for £2.00
I'm yet to find the slight imperfection in this.
The label on this one said it is a poly cotton and is from Japan. There appears to be some water damage to one side, but there's at least a yard of salvageable fabric here!
Also included in the bag of goodies were these excellent patterns. Maybe they will be my first foray into dress making?
