I've always had a passion for gingham .. it goes back to school when my gran took me out for the afternoon one day after school to buy fabric for a school needle work project. We went to Stuttofords in the middle of Pietermaritzburg. Up the escalator to the top floor to their haberdashery. it was like walking into wonderland for me !! piles of fabric, buttons, rolls of ribbon, wool and every thing you could dream of ! I chose a turquoise gingham and pink,purple and navy thread for my project and it was the prettiest clothes peg bag in my class by far !!!
We ended our shopping with a cream soda float at the cafe nextdoor.
not to forget the rickrack ….
