So, while many people I admire stick to their fabric fast I make up for their loss to the fabric shops of the world. (I hang my head in shame.)
First off, every stash should include some Oakshotts. The subtle colour shifts in these weaves entrance me. I like moving them about and watching them change colours. I just can't help it. Yesterday these were introduced to my home.
If you have never had any Oakshotts before then it's hard to describe how brilliant they are. Two different colour threads woven together that produce amazing results.
You can see in the photos above how the colours gently shift just by changing the angles that you look at them. I particularly like the way these F8s stand out against the midnight blue and the black. My brain is coming up with ideas but my schedule is saying it will have to wait. Crap!
More fabric that won't be played with for a while, but that I needed to own. I blame the Great British Destash. I finally got my hands on a little piece of the Farmstyle aqua cherry blossoms. My need festered for a very short while and then before you could say 'look at your bank account, Susan' I had been on Etsy and ordered these.
Love at first sight! May I just say, if anyone has any of these lurking in their stash and decides they don't want them any more, think of me. I will happily buy them. I have loved these fabrics for years and wish I had been aware of them when the line was printed.
Right, I have a floor to hoover so I can get on with the basting task. All sewing was put aside for the birthday celebrations yesterday but today it's full steam ahead.
