Ok. I can remove the paper now and reveal whats underneath. So glad you like it Jo. The material as I said is nearly 40 yrs old. Before we got married my soon to be M in L gave me 7 pieces of beautiful real silk remnants. She worked in a clothes factory and would often bring home end of line remnants or faulty seconds. Over the years this continued and I made various items for the children from the materials but always carefully putting the silk back thinking that one day I would use it. Well the children grew up and I would still get the silk out from time to time and just look at it, feel it and enjoy it. Then I bought a book on Embriodered Boxes by Janet Edmonds and suddenly those pieces of silk took on a new meaning. Mum is no longer with us but I bet she is reading my blog so thankyou Joyce. Enjoy.
