I'd like to take a brief interlude from our usual Post A Day in May and share some recent inspiration for a collection of fabric flowers called "Mrs. Forrester". It came to me on Sunday night while I was watching the charming Cranford series on PBS. Cranford was written by Elizabeth Gaskell and takes place in a rural English town on the brink of change in 1840. It has it's share of heartbreak, but often takes a lighter note with some very funny escapades.
These are a few of the things that really struck me from the period costumes -
- Ruffles in eyelet and lace
- Dresses in muted tones and small prints
- Pretty hats
With those things in mind, I made a lavender sachet with the following -
- Two types of eyelet ribbon
- Liberty of London fabric
- Fabric called New England Quilts
Note: Scott is having a special birthday this weekend so we're going to be away and computer-free. Have a good one!
