Little bird.

Just a short distance from my home is a company that weaves the most beautiful wool and flannel fabrics. I have driven past many timed since moving here and thought I should pop in and see the fabric.

Today was the day and it was amazing.

The company Fox Brothers has been making cloth since 1772.

There were shelves groaning with the most beautiful designs,soft and so touchable. It is sooo... expensive but I bought a small piece. pity you can't feel it.

Earlier I found two candlesticks  for 50 pence each, a bit too shiny for me so I gave them a coat of Annie Sloan paint.

I carefully cut out a little bird from the wool and here she is. A little pin keep!

The history of Fox Brothers is really interesting so have a look on there website. meanwhile I have a little more fabric to play with.

Have a great weekend.

How wonderful that you finally stopped in for a visit and were able to at least take away a small piece of fabric. Fabulous use of the candlestick. Your little birdie pinkeep is so sweet! Hope your day is great. :) Tammy
