I've recently had instalments from both my fabric clubs - and both of them as usual, are great.
The first one to arrive was the 19th Century Fabric Samplings from Somerset Patchwork and Quilting.
I was thrilled when I saw this lot because of the 'brighter' colours. The lovely pinks, yellows, greens, and purples are just perfect for using as 'zingers' in any scrap project. I always seem to be short of just the 'right' fabric and all of these are winners. I even like the background and shirting fabrics included this month. Will have plenty of use for them all.
The next lot is from Threadbear. They are so different to the ones from Somerset - which is a good thing. As you can see they are darker and mainly reds and browns.
I especially like the two at the front - the dark red patterned fabric and the beige fabric. There's also a nice brown fabric as well.
I'm sticking with these fabric clubs next year because each instalment brings something I can use. None of the fabric club fabrics sit around in my stash for very long.
Hitting the shops....
Well the shopping isn't quite done by me yet and this morning I'm venturing out into the mall again. I've been psyching myself up for two days and made a list so I won't get sidetracked and forget what it was I had planned to buy. My plan is to be focussed and stick to the list. Wish me luck!
Until next time
