The Linen Quest

I think it's fair to say that I love working with linen. I love using it as a base for embroidery, I love that it goes with almost any fabric, and I love the look and feel of it.


What I don't love is how difficult it is to find the perfect linen for a project that doesn't cost the earth.


So, I'm on a quest to try as many different types of linen as I can find. If you can help with suggestions leave me a comment. I'm not going to keep the results to myself, I'm going to share them with you over the next few weeks on my blog so if you love working with linen or would like to and don't know where to start pop over to
