for the love of liberty

My little package of liberty fabrics has arrived! I've fallen in love with their designs all over again and look forward to using them in ways that are not quite so Laura Ashley 1980's......
Those little "screams" to the right will really deserve some special place, don't you think? They are almost subversive.

The online service from Calico & Ivy is fabulous. Their range of designs is extensive (making it very hard to choose) and they express post.

Mmmm, some will definitely be binding those French smocks I'm dying to make - when I finish some of the other projects ;) x

welcome to mosswood

How exciting to be starting my very first blog with such a beautiful image!
I cannot think of a better way to represent the essence of what I hope this blog can contribute.
The artist responsible is Valerie Roberts from Daylesford, Victoria. Valerie and her husband Roger have just opened a studio and gallery at their property. They recently had an opening and this sold straight away. Not surprising.

For those of you who have admired Valerie's other work, you may want to take a look at this. It is called "Road to Creswick". A little hard to quite capture it's detail in this photograph.

I'd love to hear your thoughts and thank you so much for taking the time to visit.
