And then, thinking about a Valentine's Corner for the shop, I started playing with fabric postcards, also from totally recycled fabrics, but with some funky machine thread a friend gave me one Christmas. There's glittery thread, and the terracotta coloured one is actually silk with a lovely sheen: (not Charlie...) I'll list these over the weekend!
