The roses are back!
How I do wish the roses really were back in my garden. But since this will not be the case for a good while yet, I will have to get my "rose-fix" elsewhere. And what better place than in the bedroom. On the old chair.
For the past three years this very chair has been clad in a white vintage sheet from France, but since it was about time to give the loose cover a wash, I decided to replace it with these roses.
The rose fabric is my favourite of all Laura Ashley fabrics (long since discontinued, I believe). I love the slightly vintage, 50s look of it. And I love the various shades of pink. Just as I love the cotton/linen mix of the fabric itself.
I made this loose cover years ago, but for the past three years it has been "resting" on the loft. But now it is back, while the white one is in the wash. And not just for now... I think I shall leave the roses on for a good while. At least until I get to enjoy real ones in my garden again.
