Thank you to the lady who sold me the scraps of her father’s ties and cravats at the Maypole Carboot on Sunday. She had made a patchwork quilt out of them and the left-over bits were safety-pinned into coloured bundles ready for sale. She was really happy that they were going to a fellow patchworker.
Her father, John, had worked in the antiques trade and had apparently been quite a character!
As my ceramic patchwork is being talked about as being an ‘Antique of the Future’, it’s good to think that John, through snip-bits of his fabrics, may rejoin the industry…
