“Bloody your hands on a cactus tree,
wipe it on your dress and send it to me.”
The Pixies, Cactus
Soon as I first laid eyes on this superfine lawn with a photograph-like print of cactus, I was reminded of that Pixies song from the brilliant album I still love so much. I’d spot it every time I went to one of Jeff’s fabric shows. It never seemed to diminish on its bolt. I’d be all over it, thinking, “Nice, but what kind of person would wear cacti all over themselves?!”.
And it gradually dawned, “Er, me….”
The inspiration: this lovely Laurel contest winner in silk.
The cost: £8 for one metre of fabric, £3 for a concealed zip, £3 for bias binding, thread and cord = £16
A great wardrobe filler though I probably won’t be getting too many hugs in it.
