Two bundles of fabric arrived in the post this week. One for the shop, and one for my personal stash. A lot of fabrics in the shop had sold out, so it was time to replenish, and also to get some new designs in.
There are new fabrics for both boys and girls. I adore the one on top - it's a Riley Blake print called 'Fly a Kite'. Cute!
There is also a whole bunch of Tasha Noel fabrics. I replenished my dwindling stock of her old line 'The Simple Life' - very popular with my customers, so several prints had sold out. I also got my hands on some of her new fabric line 'Little Red'. I like the way her fabrics coordinate so well with each other.
The other parcel had some Fig Tree layer cakes for my personal stash, but I will share those with you later. I went a bit nuts fabric shopping, I confess! And not just fabrics, notions too. Just look at these adorable lace-edged bias tape that arrived this morning, and these wooden buttons. Apple and teddy bear buttons! (Love.) No idea what they will be used for yet, but I am sure they will be perfect for a project some day. If I like something I like to get it there and then (especially if it is on sale). Most of the time I have absolutely no idea what I am going to do with it. However there is nothing I hate more than going back to order a particular fabric or a trim, only to find out that they have sold out or been discontinued. I end up kicking myself then.
Things have been a bit slow on the project front, as I am still up to my ears in shop orders. In the little spare time I get from those (and my two hooligans) I have been working on the clamshell blanket and also started an embroidery for Mother's Day. It is my own design and the pattern will be coming in the next post.
Until then - have a lovely crafty day!
