The Overcoat

Today has been a day of sorting, cleaning and organising, I had an old, possibly vintage, Parkernoll sofa delivered and the whole house has had to shuffle around to accommodate it. Every single thing in our sitting room has now come from a second hand warehouse, except for the T.V.

My best ever ebay purchase, Betsy's tweed overcoat, she wore it for a couple of years and I let down the sleeves and hem, she even managed to squeeze herself in to it the other day but it doesn't look so good with three quarter length sleeves.

It has now become a specimen for my textile studies and still it is adored by both of us.

I love the simplicity of these transfers before they have been embroidered.

Tempted to do something with the ducks...
