Fabric Finds.

I`ve just discovered that my favourite charity shop now has a fabric rail! Here are some of today`s finds:

This lovely vintage embroidered linen cushion cover was only 20p! I love the old curtain fabric too.

 

 

 

 

 

 

More embroidered traycloths to add to my collection!

The best find was this gorgeous length of 50`s (I think) print on a satin weave fabric. It reminds me of the apple blossom in my garden. I like the pale sky-blue background too.

I do try to use mainly recycled fabrics in my work, but now and then I can`t resist a fat quarter. Because I use such tiny amounts of fabric, a quarter metre can last me ages, even years. I had to stock up on thread in our local haberdashers today and decided to treat myself to these packs of fat quarters by John Louden.

I couldn`t resist these tiny stars and really liked the muted colours.

This pack with its subtle blues and tiny scattered letters was a must-have too.

I`m sure I`ll really enjoy using them for lots of future projects!
