Today heralds the beginning of another new project. It ought to be noted this does not fall under the “delicate and natural” brief – that’s my other project.
Every evening over Christmas I sat down in my new reading nook with my favourite book and looked at everything over and over. Then I spent two entire days looking all the way through Reprodepot and Superbuzzy; adding things to shopping carts, removing them, adding them back, mixing, matching, considering. Back to the book. Back to the sites. There was no intentional matching, but on a subliminal level, of course.
On Boxing Day morning a small twist of fate led me to the most marvellous treasures from my vintage linen lady and today the first two parcels arrived early at my door. After we’d breakfasted and I’d cleaned up the glass I broke Astrid and I began to slowly unpack and admire these new wonders and play a bit of mix n match.
The green and blues in both these fabrics are simply made for each other. I’m quite excited about this combo – no doubt there’ll be a bag in a few days time.
These ladybugs with lilac dots are absolutely gorgeous. It’s a linen so it will be rather heavy for lining don’t you think so we’ll see – but these two look cute together. Aren’t the orange apples sweet – and I think the red dashes are rather brilliant.
Oh and the purple wavy dots – simply simply extremely lovely in all their wavy loveliness. And what better to go with them than the spangly orange flowers?
This little discovery was the first in my line of finds. I love the harder style of illustration – yet it’s still very friendly and looks most happy with the also-friendly chocolate dots.
And this linen runner – well it vanished from the shop and then it came back I’m happy to say and it’s now in its rightful home soon to become a lovely purse with trees on the inside.
I’m just so in love with these fabrics I could burst! And I really must do some work now and sew tonight.
