Tomorrow I'm going to watch my little shepherd perform in her school nativity play and after that it's a long stretch of holidays. So this may be the last piece for a while.
The colour of this blossom is warm and makes me think of cinnamon and star anise, sweet winter baking and memories of sand beneath the feet in summer.
The chain has larger, bud-like, roundish links that seem to echo the smocking nicely.
It's new in the shop today.
