I recently bought a huge bag of fabric pieces from someone having a clear out. It was full of small pieces of Laura Ashley fabric from the 1970’s and 80’s. I so enjoyed sorting it all out when I got home.

It brought back great memories of my patchwork making days when I was still at college. Living in a small flat in Ross on Wye, during the holidays I  would take my patchwork box to my nearest open space and stitch away using many of the same fabrics I found in this bundle.

My favourite place was  The Prospect, a lovely grassy area by the church which overlooked the river Wye. The link above is to a great website about Ross on Wye which some lovely photos of the prospect and fascinating articles about the town .
