Hen said… Love that fabric! My favourite thing was a vintage crazy patchwork throw we spotted at a street market in the West Country. My other half had sneaked back to get it without me knowing and then there it was, on Xmas day! I now have it covering the chair in my sewing room, looking mighty fine.

Congratulations Hen! Please email your postal details to
