I'm being so so so good! No fabric at all! I'm looking but not touching..actually I'm not really looking! A GREAT day at GJs Fabric Store, in Brunswick yesterday, sewing with my MMQG peeps - a great group - positive, friendly, generous, funny, loyal - we have a great year ahead of us, I can feel it in my bones! - BUT I am digressing.....I spent 7 hours in very close proximity of a great quilting store with oodles and oodles of tempting fabric, but I did not even look! Okay, I had a peek, but I was strong and stayed true to my FA Pledge sisters!!
I have taken some piccies of another part of my fabric collection - vintage linen tea towels!! I read on a FB site somewhere, someone was amazed that some 20 year olds did not recognise a Tea Towel!!! What the? Who would not know what a tea towel was? There was much spluttering as you could imagine!! hehe!
I love love love collecting vintage linen for the kitchen - the softer it is the better!
The first one is a super favourite - colour, graphic print and softness '8'
Designed by Harvey Lago for Fragonard in Ireland
This one I bought from Liberty, in London - probably cos I just wanted to buy something from the store! I thought it was fun, using a vintage teatowel 'Australia', with fabric paint design ' rock on tea time, it's cake o'clock' over the top - colour bright, softness '6'
This is also a super favourite - Welsh Language
Colour bright, softness '9'
I have a soft spot for this one as my name is Welsh!
I love this one too - made in Ulster, Ireland (which often are the best!)
It reminded me of a quilt pattern - imagine the applique you could design from this!
Just a little glimpse into what is in my third drawer down - I love to fill it with freshly laundered, smoothly ironed, pieces of textile history - history that I may not know of, but lays there, ready for use all the same :)
