Antique French toile fabric listing today at Rag Rescue

It is 4.30am and I'm sitting in my study with a coffee to try and get rid of the last dregs of sleep. I had to go to bed at 6pm last night as the streaming cold that troubled me all day just got the better of me. There's only so much sleep a girl can have in one night. So here I am and thought I'd start work as I have to take mum for a biopsy this morning, out of the door at 8am even though the appointment isn't until 10am. Why is it that there is never enough parking spaces for anyone at hospitals?

Anyway back to business. At 7am there will be four wonderful antique fragments of French toile fabric going on to the website. I'll write a description for you underneath each photo and you will be able to find them at in the 'Larger fabrics' section.
