Who whould have thought that I would find fabric like this at Lincraft?
I bought 1.5 metres this afternoon – it’s 100% cotton, and quite lightweight. I like it so much, that if I can master my fear of matching check, I might even go back and buy enough to make a skirt.
It actually made a charming backdrop to photograph my other recent fabric purchase, all the way from Pink Chalk Fabrics in the States. The dollar hit parity, and I just had to get some. I have been eyeing off this “Moda Grunge by Basic Grey” fabric for a while, because I love the way it is almost a solid colour, but it has other colours that look like they have been dry-brush painted over the top. I got a 1/2 yard of each of these colours – the one on the far right is called “Basic Grey Fruitcake Grunge Avalanche” and is my favorite.
Sleeping Beauty (by the always enchanting Heather Ross) just had to come home to my place too. Heavens knows what I will do with her, but for the moment I am happy just to stroke her fabric as I pass by.
Have you been buying up things online too?
