Did you know that the teardrop design that came to be known as paisley originated in India more than 2000 years ago? It got the name "paisley" in the early 1800's when Scottish soldiers serving in India brought back shawls in that design. The design was copied by weavers in the Scottish town of Paisley and they made the shawls quite popular.
Last week I showed you this pillow I made from a placemat. I think this paisley is quite fresh and modern looking.
I have to say I am especially fond of red paisley. These cushions are on my diningroom chairs.
About 14 years ago I bought a couple yards of this Liberty paisley print. It has been in my stash all these years waiting for just the right project. Today I cut into it for the first time. It is exactly the right thing for something I am working on. One of these days (soon) I will show you.
John Lennon owned a Rolls Royce that was painted with a paisley motif.
