Tinkering.

A number of weeks ago Joan from Vibes and Scribes in Cork, Ireland, sent me a piece of fabric from her Fabric and Craft shop. It seemed perfect for some Broderie Perse to be stitched on top of it. I have been trying out several floral fabrics and have settled on this Toile.
 
 
As you can see it is very early days and the joins all show. Trimming and stitching to follow. The second photo gives a better likeness to the colour of the fabrics. Later on I want to use it in the centre of a quilt.


Here is a link for Vibes and Scribes  The shop has a lot of different fabric and craft items and something I've been looking for after my local supplier closed, Dylon dyes which I use for my felted wool. Just something else to keep me busy. Thanks Joan, for the fabric. I hope you like what I'm using it for.

It is lovely. Also the complete opposite of what I got from her shop. :)

It isn't easy to find fabric that does well for broderie perse. This is different than the big floral prints and very nice.
