Thank you for such a beautiful post, Fiona. I love what you have done and I too had no idea that this material was bark cloth. It used to be around a lot, but I did not realise that was how it was made. Thank you so much.

I am obsessed with it and would probably choose it over any fabric I find in charity stores. It is so robust and the designs are always 'of a time.' Thanks so much for popping by. x

oh my gosh I didn't know this fabric was bark cloth. It has been a big part of my history (being an Australian this fabric was everywhere) I adore what you have done with your latest find. Almost tempted to ask if you will post internationally!!

It has a wonderful history. I do post internationally for my patreons who live in Australia. If you message me with your email I will send you pictures and description etc x

Oh this is such a special story. Thank you. And I love your words "Homespun living" I haven't heard that term before. If it's OK I would like to use it too?

Your story about the war blankets remind me of a dressing gown I have that my mum made out of an old blanket. It is so warm and cosy. To recycle, to reuse, to re-create is our gift to the next generation.

Thank you Fiona for such an inspiring post.
