Roses, Roses, Roses!

After a glorious Spring weekend, and more sunshine forcast for this week, my thoughts have turned towards flowers, as they often to when I am thinking about textiles. I have put some lovely rosie textiles into the website, including a yummy Canton piano shawl with gypsy colours that would be perfect to wear on a warm summer evening, a tiny, quite damaged bur still delicious French silk child's bodice that would display beautifully in a boudoir, and some wonderful French cotton panels printed with baskets of shabby chic roses against a trellis over-grown with morning glory that would be wonderful for Spring & Summer sewing projects.

  1. These are all so beautiful!!
    On a different topic, I just noticed that you still have a link for my blog in your sidebar, but I've closed my blog for awhile and it isn't visible to anyone...don't want anyone to be offended if they visit via the link, so it's fine with me if you remove it:-)

  2. Ahhhhhhhh florals. My favorites, always.

  3. Roses and Peonies are my favourite flowers, cut from the garden, painted in pictures and of course on textiles as shown in your lovely photographs. You have some wonderful pieces here, the child's bodice is so beautifully made... the buttons are fabulous too. Abby x

  4. Hi Stella, I hope you are well, lovely to have you visit, and thanks for pointing that out, I have removed the link! Lois xx

  5. I grow to love flowers and images of flowers more and more as I grow older, also, I am a terrible flower gardener - I am better at growing herbs and vegetables - so floral textiles fill my home and heart to compensate!
