I got my sewing machine out, woohoo! To make a quilt, really, but before I started on that, I wanted to make some lavender hearts to put into an auction one of the animal rescue charities I support, is holding on Facebook right now.
I used antique French hand loomed linen, over a hundred years old, vintage lace motifs which my dear friend Alexandra had gifted me with, vintage sequins and beads from Paris, and backed the hearts with a lovely cotton fabric from a vintage French torchon ( tea towel ). Filled with toy stuffing for shape and lovely lavender for a beautiful scent -
You can check out the auction HERE if you are interested. The starting bid for the two lavender hearts is £9.00 plus postage.
