For some time now I've had the pleasure of working with Laura and Jamie's 'Fingerprint' fabrics, making up bespoke scarves, cushions, etc. to clients' designs.  This latest batch of colourful chiffon scarves is just gorgeous.  The fluid fabric drapes beautifully and is really soft against the skin
and the patterns are lovely.
Below is a cushion cover with zip at the lower edge.
The design has been printed by 'Fingerprint' onto firm cotton which is sturdy and durable at the same time as being colourful and dramatic!

Speaking of colour and beauty - as always, there's lots to feast the eyes on here at Apley Park.

Early morning dew.

Our bridge is fully restored and looking very smart.

The trees are still being harvested.

The cattle are getting bigger
 and Thomas is also growing incredibly fast!  
He's enjoying the scrunchy autumn leaves here with Auntie Sadie.
