There have been a few parcels of loveliness dropping through the letter box so here are my latest could not resist stash additions...
Carolyn Friedlander's latest collection is just so cool. I wish I could have it all but I picked out some of my favourite prints and colours from Fat Quarter Shop. The Friedlander collection has some of the best colour combinations - the pistachio, pops of orange and lime - and I can't wait to cut into these prints!
I also bought some fabrics I had stashed in my online basket along with some yummy Cotton + Steel:
top row, left to right: Stripes, Mostly Manor by Victoria Findlay Wolfe; 1/4" Stripes in Gray by Riley Blake Designs; Flotsam & Jetsam in Sand Dollar, Kujira & Star by Rashida Coleman-Hale; College Ruled in White, Paper Obsessed by Heather Givens; Cross Hatch, Maven Stone by BasicGrey
bottom row, left to right: Tiny Tiles Natural, Black & White 2017 by Cotton + Steel; Chimes Natural, Black & White 2017 by Cotton + Steel; Cipher in Grey, Flower Shop by Alexia Abegg; Double Dots Neon Pink, Black & White 2017 by Cotton + Steel; Double Dots Dark Grey, Black & White 2017 by Cotton + Steel; Roller Rink Neon Pink, Black & White 2017 by Cotton + Steel
I was lacking greys in my stash so this has helped replenish that and as I was looking at the prints today I feel like these three in particular are very me! I grew up roller skating and then spent 9 years at university studying and teaching - also I do really love paper!! That cross hatch print in the middle is amazing, I am so drawn to it and can't really explain why... it feels retro and modern... classic, complex and simple all at once. I love it.
Next is some lovely canvas from The Fabric Fox because I plan on making Aneela's new pattern and thought these would be super fun and cute:
Dolly Mix, Trefle by Kokka and Large Hidden Pandas by Cosmo Textiles, I also picked up some more Shibuya Linen, Tokyo Train Ride by Cotton + Steel (not pictured because I just started cutting it up!).
It's always fun to experiment and try new threads, I picked up these gorgeous Watercolours by Caron pima cotton threads from Patchfinders. These colours are so, so pretty and hard to capture in a photo:
I had another fun delivery, after Collette enticed me with a referral to the Papergang subscription box. So thrilled with everything in it - gorgeous note books and stationery, all in such fab colours. Can't wait to see what next month brings :)
