It has been far too long since I have updated recent news for The Drill Hall Emporium. I have been oh so focused on Flywheel, our new store that opened just before Christmas. But, folks, I am back for a year of exciting times and beautiful products that we love to have in our store. My mum has been busy curating a lovely collection of beautiful toile linens to form her latest collection of cushions for the soft furnishings room. These cushions are not yet on our website, so as usual you are all getting the first look. Mind you, this is just a sample, I did not get a chance to photograph all of them...
I love these Watteau linen cushions, the colours are soft and pretty and the scene is for the romance in all of us. I am pretty sure this is a one off fabric for the store, and as such there are only two cushions available. Can you see the lovely texture of the linen?
The blue toile is very popular, this linen is not as old but I also found it in France a few years ago and couldn't resist.
Lastly, these cushions are made from an oriental inspired design and depicts peacocks in raspberry red colours on a green ground linen. Magical, no?
My time is now divided between the two stores and I have a vague yet constant sense of wanting to be in two places at once. I often joke about cloning myself but now I am earnestly starting to wonder how close scientists are to this feat? If I could be greedy and have multiple clones (not just the one) one of them would be at home catching up on the pile of magazines! And having a cuppa.
The big news for the week is that our Flywheel blog has now officially started! So please take a look and follow for all Flywheel related news and events.
Until next time
