Fabrics!!


Nothing like a little fabric purchase to lift ones spirits! I have found that my stash is lacking in BRIGHT cheery fabrics so had to rectify this with a little trip to Annies Cottage Crafts...a lovely craft shop about 1 1/2 hours drive from where I live.

So many ideas were coming to mind for these fabrics on the trip home
Some cute scissors!
And this fabric (under the scissors) with the birdies...how could I resist!!
A copy of Vignette and red and white fabrics arrived in the post yesterday.

Time to go and get Tea ready for the family but all I want to do is play with fabric! Lol!

All your fabrics are beautiful, I loved the birdie one under your cute scissors, can you tell me about the fabric in your first photo, it was the first fabric folded with some others, a floral print with a kind of scallop flower. I love it.
What are you going to make with your red and white fabrics. they are lovely.

I smiled at your comment about planning projects for your gorgeous fabrics on the trip home.
I do that so often, thinking about future projects as I drive around. I really should concentrate more on my driving than designing.
