My First Blog - here goes

Hello, my name is Susie and welcome to my Fabric Blog page,, i have just recently launched my new on-line fabric store ~ I Just Love That Fabric ~ you probably came through it on your way here.
I have a passion for beautiful fabrics whether for sewing or for wall art, bedding or crafts. I hope to be able to show you over the coming months, some great new fabrics and ideas for gifts and home furnishings, and how simple some of these things are to make. I also hope you will find inspiration from my Fabric Blog, where my ideas will become your ideas too in your home, with loads of images to inspire your imagination.
I love mixing different fabrics and textures for a vibrant fresh look, and discovering new textiles and designs which inspire me to create and sew.

So enough about me, for now, to get started i have posted a pic of one of my beautiful Marimekko Mini Unikko doorstops, I have been making these for the past 3 years and I send them all over the world. They have been made so they can be filled once they have reached their destination, hence saving hefty postage costs.
I fill with some soft toy stuffing which helps keep their shape and then just add about 1.5kgs fo rice or stones to a zip lock bag and there you have it , a Funky Cube Doorstop, ready to let the breeze through without the creaking and banging.
Thank you for visiting,
