Fabric sale Fabric Sale

I have that spring feeling, for spring cleaning and clearing out cupboards and shelves, sorting out fabrics and having a bit of a sale. A bit like moley from "The Wind in The Willows" white washing the walls and then breaking free to enjoy the sunshine.

After realising that this feeling comes from when i lived in the northern hemisphere, and everyone looked forward to spring and daffodils and sunshine after Christmas, but not here in Australia, Autumn and winter are next before spring, but it must be an inbuilt thing in my body clock. So i will forget about Autumn and think Spring instead!!

Anyway, ive added some more to my fabric sale in my store this week, as im having an "Autumn clean" so take a peek. Most designs are just remnants, there is some meterage, so check the availability. Happy shopping.

Oh and please let me know if you have that Spring Feeling too, id love to hear from - or is it just me!!

Have a great day,

Fabric clear out....

Thought id have a quick fabric clear out this week, and once i started looking i discovered all sorts of lovely fabrics, that i had forgotten about. When i turned round i had this mountain of fabric behind me, like a little ones in search of something at the bottom of the toybox. So then had to neatly tidy them all away to make room for all the new fabrics i will be buying this year, oh i cant wait, thats the fun part, having them arrive at the door - its so exciting.
Some i have put a Fabric Sale on in my store- mainly quilting fabrics, to make some room, Isadora Phoexnix dots, Tanya Whelan Ava Rose and Dena Designs.

**** Happy New Year ****

Wow - so where did that last month dissapear to, Christmas and New year just seem like a blur, my children cant beleive its all over, but are already looking forward to this years Christmas, oh to be that age again.
I have had a few hours spare over the last couple of days to finally upload some new fabrics in to my store, I have a new fabric designer on board, Hollabee textiles, with 3 colourways in the beautiful Bloem design ~ which are designed and hand printed by Bianca van Meeuwen in house at Ink & Spindle.
The fabrics are hand screen printed using environmentally friendly solvent free inks on a a cotton/linen blend.

The Swirls designs are printed on an organic cotton/hemp blend, and the colours are gorgeous

Each of these designs are available from as little as 1/4 metre, which is enough for the front of a cushion or to cover a foot stool.
