Liberty Dress

Just getting through that mighty stash of Liberty fabric that I purchased in Lancaster last autumn. Standfast & Barracks print Liberty fabric at their factory and have an outlet shop. 

A cool summer dress in Liberty Tana Lawn fabric (Douglas Stripe Blue). We've had a mini heatwave this week in Wales!!!

Angel sleeves and a tie back

I've searched and searched for a pattern,but to no avail, so made this one up as I went along. 

I'll be making a few more of these I think...

Liberty bunting

Liberty bunting for a little girl.

 The binding is patchwork effect


I love the day I shall live in a little cottage in a harbour somewhere...

In Swansea, the Mumbles, (this is Limeslade Beach) my go to beach when I feel the sea calling me, my daughter lives nearby.

umm...funny name..there is a story to this apparently - a take on catamaran

and a bit of textile art inspired by my trip
