Dress up days by Riley Blake

Monday, July 30th, 2012

How is your summer going? Enjoying the Olympics? Well we have certainly been out and about, cheering up for our athletes,playing with fabric, buying even more… and this is just some of what we have new in the shop:

Since we know you love so much Riley Blake, we couldn’t let the Dress Up Days collection pass and it is here now in store! There is a bit of everything, spots, zig zags, flowers, even bicycles and a little dog on its own trolley. How totally Riley Blake is that?!?!?!

There are a few more things in stock, my very own favourite is the Essex Yarn Dyed Linen/Cotton blend in Flax. It didn’t take me long to convince Nicola that we had to have it. You must have seen a few blogs using it and it is to die for, busy people doing the Zakka Style sew along have been cutting and sewing lots of little pieces of this beautiful cotton/linen blend by Robert Kaufman.

For a few more new fabric in stock, don’t forget to check our New Items page ;)

Have a lovely week,

Sweetness is in stock

Have you seen our new fabrics?? They are sweet and shabby chic and they are part of the Penelope collection by Lakehouse.

These beauties remind me of the beautiful rose gardens, and now that the summer is at full bloom they couldn’t be more perfect.


I found a few quilts made with some of this fabrics, check them out here. But if I am honest I think they would look fantastic in a very scrappy looking quilt too.
