Dear Deer

Have you ever visited Powderham Castle in Devon? It is situated in a deer park which is home to around 600 fallow deer. I live in Kenton so it is on my doorstep and a lovely place for a wander. I’ve had a wonderful browse through Folksy for some deer themed creations as they are such magnificent creatures. It was a difficult choice – here’s my selection.

Little Sally Waters“I have a passion for 1950’s fabrics and love to sew cushions, bags and accessories using these and other vintage textiles. I find the prints and colouration so uplifting and pleasing to work with. I also look for barkcloths and feedsacks that add texture as well as colour to a piece. I enjoy the challenge of seeking these textiles out – I’m on a perpetual hunt! Most of my items are one-offs due to the rarity of the fabrics.”

Lucky you Kat – Lympstone is lovely. Don’t forget the castle is closed on Saturdays for weddings, so make it Sunday if you go! x
