Dear sewing readers,
As some of you know, this is something of a sewing travelogue. I am back in Oxford and I am showing my DD around town. Oxford is a university city - 36 campuses! It is a book city. It is even a book publishing city. It is a student city. Therefore the second hand shops run by various charities are quite good here and several of them are nearby. My daughter was looking for second hand inexpensive read and I was just looking, as you do. To cut a long story short, draped on a wall behind a rack of second hand jeans was this!!!!
Peacock print Liberty lawn known as "Hera" circa 1975. Two metres of it! But wait, there's more. I asked the young man "how much for this piece"? It cost me one pound!
How lucky is that?
