Just quickly checking in with six newly arrived vintage cotton barkcloths. They are all corkers so don't ask if I have a favourite. There is only one panel of each so just one or two large shades I'm afraid of each. Give me a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need further images or lampshade sizes/shape options.

My consolation prize ..... well I might just make myself some christmas baubles from the scraps.

I'd love to hear from anyone with an inspired idea for using up the barkcloth scraps for christmas ornaments.
For starters I'm going to retry an old favourite - the fabric scrap balls on the Lisa's wonderful redthread blog.
