Check out what the postlady delivered yesterday! Two parcels full of fabulous fabrics.
It was perfect timing, as I had just sat down to do a spot of lunch time notebook sewing while Charlotte slept.
Parcel number one was no surprise. Using some of the start up cash my friend donated, I ordered a selection of fat quarters from Fabric Rehab. Even though I knew what should be in the parcel, I still gave a little squee of excitement when I could see and touch these lovely fresh designs for myself.
|Bunch of Budgies, Linen Mochi Dot (grass and mocha), Vintage Mini|
|Keep it Sassy, Essex Linen (putty and aqua), Polka Dot Stars (yellow)|
Foxes and raccoons, and polka dots in green, with some rockets and stars for good measure. Need I say more? (Reminds self that I am making notebooks for other people...)
|Skater Boys, Illustrated rockets (orange), Comic Strip - Star Wars, Japanese mini racing cars|
|Utopia (urban sprawl), Elk Grove (in the trees), Linen Mochi Dot (mocha)|
|Utopia - Paradise Dwellers (vivid), baby cord (red), Avant Garden Flowers Cherry Linen|
|Scandi Woodland Pistachio, Tonal Chevrons (grey)|
|Caroline's gorgeous fabric parcel|
Again, please say if there are favourites you spot. I think mine have got to be the classic ginghams at the bottom left of the photo - old tablecloths belonging to Caroline's grandma. It'll be lovely to reuse them.
That's it for today. I'm up to nine finished notebooks now, and have three orders waiting to be made. I feel grateful to the people who have jumped in and ordered, not really knowing what they are getting, but trusting me to make them something nice.
I have started recording the completed ones on Instagram (my name is notjustabothernotebook) and Twitter (@kitchentablesew), should you fancy having a peek. For the time being, here's my current favourite...
|Notebook #8 - for Kally (who likes ice creams and the colour purple)|
