Play day

A free couple of hours to play with my Liberty scarf collection.

This was the one that got me started, left behind in my parents pub when I was about 14. I still love the subtle green.

An update on the different colorways on this small floral.

A few days ago I picked up a mystery scarf that I just know is an old Liberty The above gray scarf also has no mark, imprint or tag, bought at a church rummage sale in the late 1970s, it was not until the mid 80s that I found its replica with a cream ground, this time with the imprint.

Another sweet floral in two colorways, may have more somewhere. Love the wee bunches of redcurrants.
I am making headway with organizing them, and at least, have decided to sort them into styles. Floral, art nouveau, paisley, hunting etc.


  1. I do love Liberty prints! I have a habit of picking up a couple of metres of gorgeous florals in the sale and then not being able to chop them up or make them into anything!

  2. I love Liberty silk scarves and hanve managed to collect quite a few along with some lovely old Richard Allen designed Jacqmar scarves. I wear them all often and love the way a pretty or striking scarf can lift an outfit and make you look so stylish. M x

  3. I think your method of sorting them is a great idea. I must keep my eye open for them on my thrifting forays.

  4. It is always a delight to see Liberty prints and what a wonderful collection of scarves. Like Kate O I seem to hoard my Liberty Tana Lawn fabric and can't bring myself to cut into it. Take care.

  5. Love liberty prints and have just bought the liberty sewing book so looking forward to have a read of that over the weekend. Your scarves are all beautiful :o) Scarlett x

  6. the floral on the white background is AMAZING...right up my street!!

  7. OMG, something else to watch for at sales! These are GORGEOUS!!
