I have been longing for some grain sacks for ages but they are so expensive (in the UK anyway) so I've been putting off buying some - until now.
A UK supplier sent me photo's of a load she was bringing back from Hungary that week so I went for it and ordered some and they arrived today.
They are absolutely gorgeous - you can really see the age and character in them.
I can't wait to make some pillows out of them. I'm going to sew every inch by hand as I prefer to sew by hand and feel that the stitches are stronger than by machine.
I am, as we speak (type), re-organising my craft cupboards to accommodate them so they have a lovely place to sit and wait to be used.
Is it nuts to be in love with a piece of fabric? Am I alone?
I doubt it!
