Everyone's a Winner

Now you see, because of my Fair Isle obsession, I completely forgot to show you the fabulous fabrics I won recently over on the I'm a Ginger Monkey and Celtic Fusion Fabrics blogs.

As you can see (through the creases - doh - could have ironed them first, eh?), there are some unusual and inspiring fabrics in the bundle.

I absolutely adore this Red Riding Hood one - would surely make a lovely pressie for a little girl.

As would this one, which I think is Snow White

The purple colour on this is really bright (not shown here very well, I'm afraid),

But I do think this Russian Doll one is my fave AND - bonus - there's a matching tape to go with it.All in all a fantastic haul, me thinks. In order to win the prize, I had to say what I'd make with them and I said Christmas pressies - I was thinking in terms of book covers for various people. However, the fabrics are so lovely, I may have to re-think that. Hmmmm.

Meanwhile, I am jumping up and down with anticipation as my Amazon account informs me that my pre-ordered copy of Alicia Paulson's 'Embroidery Companion' will be arriving today! Hurrah! Oh joy. I hope it comes in time for coffee and cake ... perfect, non?


  1. Oh stunning, i have many of those fabrics, oh, i don't think i can share my bolt of Red Riding Hood, too glorious. Beautiful blog, love Posie

  2. I have a fat quarter of the Red Riding Hood fabric, but it's too nice to use!! I can't think what to make from it. I'm lusting over the Russian Doll fabric...
