Have you guessed what it is yet?

Fabric Giveaway

First of all, WOW!!! - what a response to the giveaway!  We are so excited that so many of you have found us.  Thanks to all of your who normally read our rantings here and on Facebook and welcome to all you newcomers. Remember, you've got until midnight on 1st March to enter.  No later, or you'll miss out / turn into a pumpkin or something equally as disastrous. Find out how here.

New Fabric - yum!

Last week we had an exciting day out at the NEC, where we made some brilliant contacts and discovered some really exciting new fabric ranges. Top of my list are some gorgeous Japanese imports due in the spring, and the rather superb Art Gallery fabrics. Although Art Gallery's designs are still printed onto 100% cotton, the weight is lighter than most of our other fabrics, making it a perfect choice for crafting, quilting and dressmaking (see we've been listening to what you want!)

In my usual fashion, I couldn't wait for us to actually get the fabric into the shop - so this little stack just HAD to come home with me!


What would you make with it?

I have a few ideas up my sleeve . . . check back here on Monday night to see what's become of it. 

New Fabric - Just Arrived

We've had four beautiful new ranges in this week:

Posy by Aneela Hoey . . .

Mind your P's and Q's by Keiki. . .

Ticklish by Me and My Sister Designs . . .

and Noteworthy by Sweetwater.

Also a super cute charm pack called Apple Jack.

That's it for today - enjoy your weekend.  The weather is going to be Coooold so great excuse to stay in and make!

See you Monday.


  1. oh I do like the Aneela Hoey. Once I sort my fabric stash this week I will see what 'gaps' I have and can do some 'essential' shopping to fill said gaps.

  2. Isn't it completely gorgeous? Reminds me that spring realyl is just round the corner - even though it's snowing again here!
