Tricia's Rough Linen May 2016 Newsletter

April 30, 2016

Mother's Day is May 8th. 
Like mother, like daughter here - such beautiful hair! 

What are you doing for Mother's Day?  It is the perfect time to give her some fun, like doing something with flowers, girly stuff even if you are her son.  Can you do thingswith her?

Gentlemen, can you do some manly and muscular favor for her, like moving heavy furniture, or digging a great big hole for a new tree in her yard?  

Can you sing for your mother, or pick flowers with her? (especially if she hasn't a garden of her own, don't get caught). Will your mother let you brush her hair, or massage her feet?  Just don't buy her tea towels unless she specifically wants one!  Trust me on this!

So no tea towels, agreed? Then again - a tea towel color bundle (black, white, natural, indigo and charcoal) - could be very acceptable. Read on ...
MORE COLOURS FOR YOUR KITCHEN
In a 'why not?' sort of mood on a merry spring day we decided to extend our colour options for Bread Bags, Tea Towels and Aprons - now available in Indigo and Charcoal as well as white, black and natural, still my all-time favorite.

COVERLET

And I have a treat for you!  We have started making coverlets - perfectly plain, lightly padded double-sided linen blankets, not only throw size but queen and king too, to use on your summer bed when you feel like just a little extra comfort. 

They are a natural follow-on from our patchwork quilts, which are so cosy and light they inspired us to create their contemporary counterparts, for the minimalist in you.

Use them with a Summer Cover, or a top sheet or no top sheet, just as you like.  The subtle sheen of linen, a little extra warmth and  + shaped tufting, very elegant. 

Maybe I'll air out my duvet this weekend as well, before retiring it for the refined warm-weather pleasures of my very own classic coverlet.

My coverlets come in Orkney fabric in three sizes: throw, queen, king and three colours: natural, charcoal, indigo.
 
 
So these are our fresh offerings for the darling month of May.  
I feel a poem coming on:
                 
                Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
                 Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
                 Rough Linen do shake the darling buds of May,
                And summer's lease hath all too short a date

 
May you enjoy your family, your bread and your bed!
