Whats this?

This pretty.tied,  1930s comforter was going no where, so I decided to unpick it and try to sell the fabric.

A shame and a bit of a fiddle as it  was closely tied and neatly finished. I thought there might have been an old wool blanket inside,

but, whats this? A nice antique quilt, albeit in VERY cutter condition, with the edges in tatters.

Update on scarves!

Surely you didn't think I had given up on my scarf collections?
Some recent additions are

 A Liberty silk scarf with an unusual logo, looks like a royal warrant. I shall go to the Liberty Facebook page and see if I can get more information. Must have an organizing and count up day of this collection.

A very pretty Richard Allen ( goes in my Jacqmar box) with the added value of a  mourned Triminghams label.

Two new Hermes.' Qalamdan 'is in perfect condition and it will look good with my brown winter suit. Who the hell would throw it out??

A faintly stained 'Flottille' that I particularly like as it reminds me of a couple of other early Hermes in this group,

And, of course, quite a few more interesting pieces that are making their way into my etsy shop.
