Fun in my fabric world....

Fads & favourites

Isn't it great to see new fabrics & feel inspired?
Your creative mind goes into hyperdrive...but sadly there are not enough hours
in a day to achieve what we would like to achieve.
A common complaint I know!

Here is a favourite...
anything with stitching...I love to embroider...play with stitches & threads
...another favourite is overdyed threads...mmm!
Another favourite is traditional with a little touch of quirkiness!
Add a little braid, some bobbles or ricrac...fun.

A current fad with me is clear colours...especially spots & stripes
...can't get enough of them.

Some of my friends have very cute birthday pressies heading their way this year!
I have signed up for a Sue Ross BOM with Material Obsession...irresistable!I love her work but have never been fortunate to do a class with her...but Kathy from MO is putting together this BOM for people like me!

I am so excited...Kathy was a delight to chat to...I have gone for a less saturated palette ( still a bit conservative)...but it will be great!

Here is a Dolly quilt I did from MO.

Look forward to sharing my progress.
