'SUMMER OF MY CONTENT' - detail
I went out this afternoon to get a single skein of embroidery floss to match something else I'm working on... Look what I came back with! Fabrics to die for with luscious colours and designs. I rarely use large quantities of commercial fabrics so these will turn up in much smaller portions cut or torn down...
