Saturday....ahem.... for one week only...... Sunday Shop News

Thanks so much for baring with me, whilst I was distracted......it's one day late, but I promise it was worth the wait, here's my picks from this weeks new arrivals...... First up are the utterly scrumptious Storybook Playtime fabrics by Windham.

It's no secret that I just adore small ditsy prints, I sometimes, just for a fleeting moment wonder if you can have too many, but then when a box full of brand new ones arrive, any doubts swiftly disappear........ I mean just look at those ducks!!!!

This week has not just been about fabric, we also had a delivery of beautiful Ebony and Ivory ribbons.  I just love the colours available in this range, they do classic stones and greys to perfection and then the most delicious ice cream shades.....

oh and did I mention that the quality is just outstanding......

and they're also fun, just look at the wonderful Airmail with love ribbon, isn't it just gorgeous!

Moving back to fabric, we managed to get hold of a bolt of Sidewalks Small Floral in Cream, shown here with Kona in Butter, pretty Pale Mint Lace and Wooden Daisy Buttons.  

Whilst we're talking Kona Cottons, Kona Snow (a pale bone ivory) had just been restocked, plus we've added Butter (shown above), Cream (a gorgeous cream with beige tones) and White (which really is the whitest of whites).  All are available as Fat Quarters and Metreage, plus we offer them in our small Pre-cut sizes if you only need a little.  Find our full range of Kona's HERE.


Look away now if you do not want to think about 'whispers' Christmas

are you ready (please do not throw anything at me!).......

Christmas fabrics have started to arrive.... in addition to the forever popular Snowflakes, Candy Striped and Polka Dots, we're also stocking some of the fabulous Michael Miller Holiday range...

Gingerbread Houses and Holiday Hostess are already listed and we have more due any day now, plus more Christmas fabrics and Ribbons due in the next few weeks...

Right, that's it for shop news, but on a sewing front, here's another little distraction that kept me busy the other night.........

Hexies.......and the best bit, playing with pretty layouts.  I'm going to be using these for a publication, so unfortunately, I can not show you any more for now, but fingers crossed it will come together exactly how I've envisaged it in my head.

Have a happy Sunday everyone!

  2. One can never have too many ditsy prints! They are the perfect antidote to these rainy, grey days! And nothing wrong with showing the Christmas fabric, I keep promising myself that I'll be more organised this year, so best to see them now and get ideas going...Chrissie x

  3. Hello Sarah as always I just love, love, love the fabrics you share! I just want them all!

Not the modern commercialised sort but certainly beautiful fabrics and all things handmade :-) Hope you've been enjoying a wonderful weekend. Anne x

  4. Oh....so many gorgeous prints. How do you ever get anything done? I'd just stare at these all day! Nothing wrong with showing us Christmas things - us crafters understand that time and planning are key in these things. I love your hexies. I am building up to a hexie project. :-) xx

  5. I can hardly believe my eyes when looking at your gorgeous fabrics Sarah, I want them all! How do you manage to resist when they are all right there surrounding you! And those hexes are little beauties too - oh go on then, keep tormenting us! Have a wonderful week, xoJoy
