designed and made by Jodiebodie.
Nov 2015–Aug 2017
This tea towel top is one of those 'secret projects' mentioned last month in "Too Soon to Tell"

It is my own design and it took ages to finish, mainly because of slow decision-making– agonising over the choice of pattern for the border.

Even if you don't see much happening online at Lupey Loops right now, there has been much happening behind the scenes:
