I was browsing in the charity shop last week (not unusual of course) and I saw these curtains, so I thought I had better snap them up for Chertsey, remembering the trouble I had finding suitable fabric for Warrior's. Somewhere, of course, I still have plenty left of the lovely big linen curtains I made Warrior's from, but can I find it? Of course not.
Interesting, isn't it, how the pattern of yellow and pink roses and little blue and yellow daisies crops up again here, the same as in Warrior's different fabric and very reminiscent of traditional canal painting.
And by way of contrast, I've got myself a nice new ratchet, thanks to Jim spotting it on Tooled Up.
Sixteen quid and next day delivery. Wonder if I'm going to get the chance to use it in the next few days?
