This fabric is a ‘reel’ find.

Hope to create something lovely with this fabric very soon when the weather is cooler.  This fabric is Ian Mankin Skye Check in colour oatmeal.  It is a cotton linen blend and being a weave has a very good weight to it.

In the meantime I am enjoying playing with some props in my workroom. I love my old cotton reels, so couldn’t resist having some of them in the photo and adding this old tape for good measure!

As if by magic….. I am very pleased with the result, just hope my customer is.  This is an interlined roman blind for their study.
