Last Saturday I caught up with Dorothy & Linda for a coffee after CAG, and was roundly scolded for not having posted recently.  While I had many excuses they all fell on deaf ears!

As a web developer and trainer sometimes the last thing I want to do on ‘my time’ is be at the computer.  And sadly, at the moment I don’t have have much to show as I’m busy putting on and sewing binding down.

But, I have been adding to my stash as well as adding to my museum collection fabrics.  I’ve picked up some Smithsonian I didn’t have or didn’t have much of.

More Smithsonian fabrics as well as some friends came to stay

I also picked up some DAR Museum Collection by P&B Textiles from 1998.

These have been on the shelves for some 14 or more years!

Some fabrics I failed to buy when they originally came out that I picked up recently.

Bits & pieces

For interest, that last brownish piece of fabric was originally produced by Windham in their ‘Empress’ range by Nancy Gere, not sure which year.  It came in pink, blue and this olive/khaki/drab green colour. Note the difference in the background.  Empress had fine line grounds on a ecru background, whereas the ‘Canterbury’ range by Robert Callaham above, was much deeper & richer in colour with a smoked or mottled background. I have some of it in green, limey/yellow and now brown which will be perfect for stems in some future project.

And last but not least I picked up this tiny bit of floral fabric which I just love and would be perfect for a new design I’m keen to start, after I start & finish those Kaffe Baskets I’ve already cut out.

Who am I? Where did I come from?

Do you know who the manufacturer or the name of this fabric?  If you do please let me know.  I’m really keen to find more.

And last but not least a message to Dorothy & Linda from Tigger.

I heard about you two and your heretical ideas, and I'm not having any of it!
