William Morris and the Arts and Crafts Movement

Kathy at The Quilter's Cafe is a girl after my own heart. She has found this fabulous web site - The Arts and Crafts Home. My mother adores the William Morris designs and I can remember some sort of Arts and Crafts design somewhere in the house since I was knee high to a match stick (I'm only 5 ft 2 so I'm not joking !!!). These materials have always been around. Liberty and Heals have always stocked them but at a price, so it is lovely to see them coming back just a tad cheaper. And in the same vein. these are some of the fabrics which can be seen at Charleston House in West Sussex, UK.

Oh, Clare, what a wonderful Arts and Crafts site. Thanks for posting it.

I'm in Australia, about to return to California tomorrow. No sewing machine available for another sad! That site made my fingers itch to start sewing...
