because it's Cotton & Steel and I can't resist. Also it happens to match the colour scheme of my 1930's Farmer's Wife quilt (if I needed an excuse!).
I ordered these lovelies from Pink Castle Fabrics, great service and quick shipping as always:
top to bottom: Pattern Guides in Navy, Macrame by Rashida Coleman-Hale - this is so beautiful in real life and all those cute patterns will look fabulous in tiny patchwork pieces; Popcorn in Caramel, Penny Arcade by Kim Kight - popcorn!! And so cute that it has the striped paper bag border; Fruit Gum in Ivory, Fruit Dots by Melody Miller - just love this!
top to bottom: Wall Hanging in Blush, Macrame by Rashida Coleman-Hale - macrame is having a revival and if I didn't have so many quilts to make I would totally give it a go! For now I will be content with this fabric print instead; Metallic Gold Stripe in Navy, Fruit Dots by Melody Miller; Penny Arcade in Pink, Penny Arcade by Kim Kight.
I am not just a fabric lover, I am a paper lover too. Recently I have been printing things for my planner and also note cards and birthday cards. It is useful to have some good quality card stock for such things and I found papermilldirect, they have a huge range of paper, card and envelopes and all made in Great Britain.
I got a pick and mix box, which is really excellent value and came beautifully boxed - the info above was printed on the inside of the lid. You can chose your own colour selection and it is gorgeous quality. I will order from them again (and put this in this blog post so I can remember what I got!!).
I am a happy bunny.
