Fabrics and colours...

I've been having a bit of a rummage through my fabric collection, and came across these little beauties and decided to take a piccie of them all together.

And here is a close up piccie of my snowman fabric that I found in the Beyond Fabric shop - I couldn't resist - it made me feel very Christmassy! I love Christmas - I made a christmas cake last year for the first time (from Nigella's Christmas cookbook, it was a toss up between this and the Delia one), and I was so chuffed that it turned out ok - my Dad bless him still talks about it to this day! I can't wait to get stuck in again this year!  I could be getting a bit ahead of myself, but I think it's time to start thinking about making them now?

Have a good day everyone :)


  1. Hi Sarah
    Thank you for popping by and your lovely comment:-)
    I do like your fabric collection in these photos - how is it, that other people's fabric stash always looks more interesting than our own?!
    Have a lovely weekend ahead,

  2. What a lovely stash :) What are you going to make with it all? xx

  3. Not sure yet to be honest, maybe some bags and purses, and another hot water bottle cover with the pink poodle one (it's a very soft brushed cotton). In the meantime, they still look just as lovely as a nice pile on the shelf! Sarah x

  4. The pink poodle is very cute. You do have a great collection. I think it will be popular with little girls as a hot water bottle.

  5. Hi Sarah, thanks for popping by my blog and saying Hello! Lovely collection of fabrics, and it is never too early to start getting ready for Christmas!!!

  6. Oh yes I do think it's time to start thinking about Christmas - especially if you're a crafter. Hope you can make another killer cake!

    I love your fabric photos too - I could look at pretty fabric like that all day. *sigh*

  7. Hi Sarah, thanks for visiting my blog and becoming a follower. I love your fabrics, the pink poodles are really cute. If you are free tomorrow and fancied a day out we are having our Vintage and Home Made Fair in Northampton and we are only an hour from london on the train, it would be great to see you.

  9. I love the snowmen and the Cath Kidston London fabric. I might have to ask my mother-in-law to try and get me some of that before she comes to visit next week from the UK. LOOOVE everything Cath.
