Op-Shop Finds - Woodland Plaid

May 14, 2013


How beautiful are the colours in this blanket!   My favourite from this weeks op-shop finds.

With the rain last week came thoughts of autumn.  
Time to make our little girl a few new winter warmers.  
Will this woodland plaid become her coat or cape?  Or maybe even a little vest?

I'll see where my scissors take me :)

  1. I know you make beautiful pieces, but maybe have just one autumn picnic in the trees first. I just picture thermos' of coffee, and those cool woven picnic baskets... Maybe I've seen too many LLBean catalogues :)

  3. What a nice blanket. And what a view! All of a sudden, I want to live in a treehouse in a rainforest! x

  4. Wow those are nice colours - I come across plenty of pastel ones, but great to have one in autumnal grown up colours!

  5. i agree with emma, your tree house is very appealing. the blanket is lovely. it puts me in mind of these funny little dresses we had in england when i was a little girl. they were a kilt on the bottom, with a white cotton vest type thing attached on the top half. did you have them here? i bought the most gorgeous wrap around cape made from an old wooly blanket such as this last year, a cape with arms and love it to bits-i'd love to see a mini version!

  7. Oooh thank you for linking up!

    I adore your blog and your lifestyle sounds amazing. I'm off to devour lots and lots of pages of you!

    The blanket is gorgeous, I have a thing for woolen tartan too. I think it would make an adorable cape. Can't wait to see what it turns into x
