Liberty Suitcase

Knowing my love for Liberty fabrics, my daughter brought me this cute suitcase from Paris, although I believe the origin is English... My precious fabrics found their place inside. 

Talking about suitcase, it's time for me to prepare my suitcases and get ready for my moving to France for the summer. Because of too much work in the house, since I finished those two quilts that you can see with the suitcase, I did not sew a lot, just slowly progressing my hexagon cushion that I would like to finish to take it with me. 

There is so much to do before leaving that sometimes I feel it's insurmountable! 
This week I tried to do some gardening. I wish I would be good in this, but unfortunately I am rather a plant killer although tremendous efforts! That's why I find those succulents miraculous, they are the only ones to resist to my inability! They seem very strong and reproduce themselves easily. I have found in my daughter's garden a different kind of succulent than the ones I have and I try to have them grow roots in water before planting them. I wonder if I could put those cuttings straight in the earth without any root... would they grow?? 

Progressing in the garden I took some pictures that I will post next time.

  2. It is a gorgeous suitcase and a lovely gift. Those succulents usually root just put into the soil. Sometimes they root just left on top here in New Zealand. I know what you mean about having easy plants...sewing comes first! :)

  4. Love Liberty fabrics and that suitcase... *swoon*... is gorgeous! Is Liberty fabric way more expensive in Europe (compared to other fabrics)? I have never seen it in Canada but in the US I see some of the on-line shops are selling it for $32- $49 a yard! Ouch! But so pretty!!

  6. Yes, you can place your succulent cuttings in the soil without roots. If the soil is moist (not soggy), roots will form along the stems. Just be sure not to over water. Lovely fabric, too. I remember my mother looking at Liberty Fabrics and that was over 40 years ago!

  9. What a sweet gift from your daughter and the perfect home for your Liberty fabrics.
    As long as the ground has a little moisture, your succulents should be able to root themselves and grow, Just bury those long stems and roots will spring up along their length.
    I wish you safe and comfortable journeys Christine!

  11. Coucou Christine !
    Tu peux les planter dans la terre without racines, ils pousseront ! J'en ai fait l'expérience mais j'ai remarqué qu'ils étaient plus beaux à l'ombre qu'au soleil ! Ils m'ont pourtant l'air d'une plante grasse .....le mystère de la nature ....! Ta Liberty valise est très belle ! Quel beau cadeau !
    Bonne soirée !!

  19. Moving to France for the summer??!! Can I come?! I'm pretty little, could maybe scrunch up in one of your suitcases, lol. I've loved France and all things French since I was a little girl; my mum says, and I agree with her, that I was French in my last life, my last several lives! I, too, adore Liberty of London fabric, ever since I took a class in how to make kaleidoscope quilts in Paula Nadelstern style, from a protégée of hers. Sadly, I have none, need to remedy that one of these days! Bonnes vacances!
