This morning I was searching through the shelves of fabric looking for some old linen to make a poppy tea towel. I pulled out a piece about 18 inches square and found this
It is obviously done from a transfer pattern - first the transfer has been put onto the linen and then individual elements have been put onto fabrics which were then cut out and glued to the linen back.
Obviously I'm not the only one to pile up part finished projects in a drawer.
I'm not sure who gave this to us - the linen was folded and looked plain from the outside. It is a great treasure though - I shall have to think of what to do with it - for it deserves to be saved.
