A No Snow Day .. Playing With Fabric...

Hello there ..
Well a few flurries .. but otherwise a No Snow day here..

 I imagine a lot of you have been stuck indoors .. tis a bit grim this weather !

I haven't ventured far .. Hubby P has gone to look at some work stuff .. 
he's a sucker for the chance to root about in someones attic.

I stayed by the fire and sorted some fabric .. we cleared a lady's house the other week .. she is downsizing ..
a bit like some of us .. she liked fabric.
I now have boxes of the stuff stacked around .. I need to sort them .. price them and move them on .. before I become swamped by them.

So .. seeing we are all a bit bored and looking for diversions .. here are some pretty fabric pic's..

Oh .. and a nice blanket .. tucked amongst the fabric..

  Look ... pretty label ..
The blanket was made in Holland .. I thought that was unusual .. not had one from Holland before.

 This is a nice new .. unused length .. I thought it had a bit of a Jacobean look to it.

 And this is so pretty .. its a really fine soft cotton  .. make a lovely summery blouse.

Remember summer ?

I've got a yen to make some pretty peg bags for summer .. 
they seem to sell well .. but I darn't start sewing until I've reduced the fabric mountain ..
but its all a bit boring .. ironing fabric..

I've been good and bunged a few bits on eBay .. 
if we are not out actively selling we have to do a little something that is kinda work based .. and I sold something today .. 
so all is well.

 I will go back to the fabric mountain now .. 'dashing away with the smoothing iron'



  1. Beautiful blanket and fabrics!

  2. I love the blanket. it would make a lovely jacket :-)

  3. Loving the fabric, no snow here in Dorset either 👎

  4. Lots of snow here and snowing again, but you know that already! That label is gorgeous and I love the blanket (I have a blanket fetish). The blue cotton fabric makes me think of summer in spite of the snow! j

  5. no snow in Somerset, although it tried, it was too wet to settle.

  6. Reading about your fabric mountain reminds me I really must do something with mine. It takes up far too much room!

  7. good for you, clearing and selling!

  8. Snow here.
    I've still not mastered ebay and I really must, as I have a loft full of "stuff"

  9. Love the blanket,the Jacobean fabric is very special...I would make bags out of that,we also have snow in Nottinghamshire.x.

  10. Victoria..I couldn't resist this fabric it's so beautiful,so you will be sending it to me,I just had to have it!!!!!x.

    1. Its on its way to you.Una.. enjoy .. and show us your makes,

      Vicky x
