roses and prats


The other day I snapped these roses growing in a neighbours garden, they are so beautiful and I posted on IG asking what they were (thanks Nicky!). I would like to get some as they remind me of the flowers I had on my bedding as a child. Well lo and behold... 


When Lois fell asleep in her buggy I grabbed a quilt to throw over her and remembered there was some of that same sheet in a vintage sheet quilt kit from Mary that I made a while ago for Joan. The roses are definitely on my shopping list.

My husband emailed me this picture from his work:



That's all the random I've got because I need a good nights sleep as I'm on an adventure tomorrow. I'm going to the Art Gallery Fabrics event in Birmingham and am looking forward to a talk by Pat Bravo and a day of inspiration and fabric, spent with sewing and quilting people. Actually I'm so excited I might not sleep at all!

  6. Is it ok to tell you that the vintage sheet has anemones de Caen on it - sold as cut flowers and grown from bulbs - not roses? Or is that shattering a dream!? Get both they are worth it!

  12. I thought they were Ballerina roses and Jan and Carol have just confirmed it!

    P.S. Spare prats, just in case the world hasn't got enough!!

  13. I think I had that bedding too. It's funny, a lot of the vintage sheets I see in blogs remind me of staying at either one if my Grandmas' houses. I think Australia got the same bed linen as the UK in the 60s and 70s!
