LA”YER, n. la”er. [from lay, the verb; L. loco, whence locus, Eng. ley or lea. The primary sense is to send or throw…]  1. A stratum; a bed; a body spread over another; as a layer of clay or of sand.

Sewin Love sent another package that arrived last week.  She is such a lovely & generous soul, and a delightful friend.  If any of you Dear Readers are interested in participating in a pattern swap, please see her blog.

It was a lovely box with layers of goodies!  The silky dark green velvet ribbon is almost black, and the 2 trims are exquisitely detailed.  The green & teal fabric used to be a bedspread. You’ll never guess what I’m doing with 2 little triangles.

Will post an update once the hand sewing is complete.  😉
