Lovely Lovely Linen

I've just taken delivery of some unbleached linen. Lovely natural beige colour. Much more environmentally friendly - although I do like the appearance of creamy bleached linen. This new fabric has a different smell - fresh, clean, no chemicals. So nice I could almost eat it!

It is also lovely to print on. Here is my first lot - one of my favourites - the grass tree - in inky blue. I thought the rough slub running through the fabric would give me printing problems but no - just enhances the overall look. And lovely to run my hands over! Can't wait to make it up into something.

and here's another photo taken on one early morning last week - the bay in winter. Stunning.
