Remember how I was talking about buying some Florence Broadhurst fabric to make some cushions...Well a Lurker on this blog emailed me to say she had some Florence fabric lying around that would be perfect for me.
(If I had only known my blog was a path for obtaining my heart's desire, I would've put it out there that I was in the market for a 1960s Hayes & Scott designed home, which came with a nanny, a cleaner and eye-candy pool boy! Greedy thing that I am!)
And I wanted to be gracious and say I couldn't possibly accept, but I just couldn't. Naturally, I said YEAH!
The Lurker, who is also a very well-known blogger, said she had picked up the fabric cheaply a number of years ago and that she wasn't going to get around to doing anything with it. She wanted it to go to someone who would use it and appreciate it.
That is pure kindness, isn't it? (It is also not the first time readers have emailed me to offer me things which I have admired. I have THE loveliest readers. You know who you are).
Check out the stash of Florence Broadhurst covers!
Gorgeous circle and squares and horses stampede Florence Broadhurst fabric
Lovely cushion covers already made! (There's a story in that, which I will leave for another time).
There are six circle and squares cushion covers and two horses stampede covers. I just have to buy some inserts and finish off the edges.
I am completely overwhelmed by this Lurker's kindness. Such a generous, generous gesture.
Today, she came over for morning tea which we had out on the back deck. The lovely Katherine from theoldboathouse came along too (she was very naughty and brought a retro gift, which I adore). We had a fabulous conversation about all things furniture and houses. Great fun!
So, who was this well-known lurking cushion philanthropist blogger??
The very cool Midcentury Jo from Desire to Inspire!!
Ha! Who knew she read me?
Thanks again! xx
