A touch of pretty

Mum and Dad visited yesterday and had with them a parcel of goodness, of the fabric variety of course.

There was one yard of fabric to come to make up the Andalucia birthday gift they got me, so of course it made sense to add a few extra yards to the bundle and a bit of ribbon too.

So this is some more Andalucia - Mod blooms with Mod Dot and Birdie Damask ribbon.

I plan to use the ribbons on the bottoms of pants and skirts and perhaps to trim the bottom of tops as well. It is thick and feels silky smooth and the colours are really rich.

Also some of the Flights of Fancy range by Paula Prass - this is Par Avion and Cobblestone in the summer colourway - can't wait to use this.

The details in the print are really lovely.

Paula has just released her new line of fabric called Summer Soiree and Patty Young has just released her new line too - Mezzanine.

Add them to the wish list I guess!

And I couldn't go past some more of the Sandi Henderson Ginger Blossom range, the print Ginger tile in both avocado and caribe.

This shirt I made in the avocado (the second one, scroll down a little) gets more comments than almost anything else I've made from the mum's at the park and playgroup - so I wanted to have a little more up my sleeve.
