Nothing cheers me up like receiving a new bundle of fabric in the mail! I ordered some solids online last week because one of my regular suppliers gave me a 20% off discount voucher – no hope of passing that up.
I bought a piece of Alexander Henry Fairyland fabric a couple of months ago – not because I have any particular interest in fairies, but because the colours are just fabulous. They look a bit washed out in this image, but the fabric is really vibrant. I’m not sure what I will do with it – so far my thoughts are to use the whole piece as a medallion and then to create some wonky, improv borders a la Gwen Marston style.
Hence the bundle of fabric that arrived this morning. I didn’t have the piece of fabric with me when ordered these, so I had to do some guessing. I love them anyway! Is there anyone else who loves looking at a bundle like this? Just looking at the colours makes me happy – I have even been known to pat bundles of fabric!
I hope you had a good start to your day.
