fabric love

A bit of retail therapy to brighten up a wintery day
Fabrics from MarilynsPatchwork in England - the postage to NZ was unbelievable!
But  . . . the fabrics are gorgeous

a long quarter - that's all that was left - of 'peony & butterfly'
from Philip Jacobs "snow leopard designs"

a 'classic floral shirley poppies', another new one from Philip Jacobs "snow leopard designs"

and a vintage 'special' 
which will be perfect with those HST's I've beeen making.


  1. Lovely fabrics, especially the top one and yes, the yellow looks good with your fabrics already made up into the hst's.

  2. Gorgeous fabrics! Perfect for brightening up a dull Winter's day. Enjoy.

  3. Love the shirley poppy fabric, pity the ones in my garden don't flower in those colours.

  4. I so enjoy these '50-60s vintage fabrics you're using. As well as the new ones that read vintage. Can't decide which I like best: 50s floral, '60s love, '70s cool.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a comment. I love to hear your thoughts.
