Lovely Fabrics

Hello Everyone I hope you are all having a good Sunday, I have been working in the garden, there is so much to do and the weather is not cooperating so I just went for it today, Tony had to replace a fence post after the high winds so he has been doing that and is now tidying up I removed lots of weeds and I have been cutting back things like phlox and penstemon which are starting to sprout, my back is now complaining a bit but I have cleared a nice patch so I feel good.
These are the fabrics I bought from Bramble Patch, the fat quarters were just a £1 each, I chose a random selection, the Blue with roses on was also in the sale I just love it.
My favourire is the floral by In the Beginning I love their fabric but can never afford it but this had been reduced to £6 a metre so grabbed some quick I will make a quilt and use the lovely border around it. The last item was a kit which was not in the sale but I fell in love with the fabrics, it will make a beautiful quilt. I am now spent out and have to start saving for the next trip to the Malvern Quilt show in May but I will enjoy using all my fabrics after I have looked at them and stroked them for a while, I am sure you all know what I mean.

My grandma sewed and my mom worked in a fabric store when I was little so I know just what you mean about "stroking" and admiring the fabric! You have some really pretty pieces. Thanks for sharing photos with us. Hope you recover from the yard work quickly. It is hard work but very rewarding, isn't it?

Take care.
