A Feast of Fabrics


The wet Spring days were forgotten for a moment this week when these beautiful fabrics arrived on my doorstep one happy happy morning :)

 ( Surely I couldn't have ordered all this in a week? I reckon I must shop in my sleep ;0 )


Some lovely soft washed japanese linen

a pretty vintage sheet

some pretty co-ordinated cotton fat quarters

But best of all...................

this lovely bundle of vintage fabric from the lovely Jennie at sosorosey







If you are a lover of vintage fabrics like me, you'll find it hard to visit Jennie's Etsy shop and come away empty handed.


I'm off to play with some of this lovely fabric now!

Have  a great weekend everyone!



PS sorry if links not working but am on laptop and can't work out how to highlight, copy and paste url's - I need a good old-fashioned (!) mouse!

Updated: Links now sorted I think, back on the good old PC with my trusty mouse!

  6. Dear Gill~
    Thanks so much for leaving comments on my blog. I shall have to investigate that snakeshead frittilary... I never would have thought I could be so enamored with anything named "snakeshead"!

    Thank you, too, for sharing your sosovintage fabrics here. I'm so glad you are pleased with your choices, and I can't wait to see what you create :)

    Have a lovely weekend!
