    I love the Hatley fabric, especially the raspberry as it’s quintessentially english (like me!) – but really because it makes me remember sitting in my mum’s beautiful English country garden surrounded by pretty flowers on a summers afternoon – devouring one of her lovely afternoon tea’s with fresh scones and a lovely pot of tea! x
