More Fabric and Ribbons

The website has been updated with lots of new fabrics this week including some gorgeous quilting pieces, children's fabrics and dress lengths from the 1940's and 1950's, perfect for spring or summer dresses.

Also new to the website this week are some gorgeous cotton grossgrain ribbons and printed Happy Birthday ribbons.  At 50p per metre they are perfect for tying up Mother's Day or Easter gifts and decorations.



I have also bought some fabrics to keep. In conjunction with the exhibition on quilts at the 
V and A, Liberty have produced a limited edition print cotton. My little bundle arrived today and I am thrilled with them. I love them so much I have had to buy a few more!

Imagine my surprise on opening this month's issue of BBC Homes and Antiques to find a picture of my kitchen included in their feature 'Kitchens to Inspire'.  This was from a photo shoot by the Times taken 2 years ago now.  I think after 2 years the photographer can sell his photos on to another magazine.  It was unexpected and I am honoured to be the inspirational 'Vintage English' kitchen!

The ltd editions are delightful! Mine have arrived and we ordered almost the same ones! I'm trying not to hord mine, but use them to make beautiful things.

I'm guessing those ribbons are edible? They must be! Like licorice shoelaces - just good enough to eat! t.x
