Fabric Stash Just Increased

Some wonderful people, namely hubbie extraordinaire and new friend Janellybelly, chatted for aproximately 30 mins last week. In Perth, Western Australia.

At a Fabric Store: Textile Traders.

Apparently the other women in the store were agog that a man was there, buying metres and metres of fabric for his woman back home!

What a honey!

Janelle very kindly got some lovely AB Midwest Modern together and then via phone, chose some gorgeous AB Chantelier fabric for backing and some other spots and stripes.

8 m of AMH - for D2's bedroom curtains:
8m of AMH for seaside curtains:

Great choices Janelle!

She was very naughty and gave Me a present - I mean, the girl did all this work for me, and then decided that that wasn't enough!

What a gorgeous bag - love love love the label inside too!

Love the idea of using AMH for curtains - how wonderful to gaze upon all that loveliness each day! Your husband and janelle did very well indeed!!

Janellybelly said...

You're very welcome! I'm so glad you like your bag. I look forward to seeing the finished curtains (no pressure).
Love Janelle xx
PS Rachel (DD) drew the picture on my label when she was 6 years old :)

I just saw the liberty tea towel from your market buys - I nearly fell off my chair. It's AMAZING!!!!!!

Hi Bronwyn

I bought some fantastic old badges and an ancient knitting pattern for a baby cape (think wistful old-fashioned baby constume and not superman).

I think the sushi button lady has a shop here:
