You Beauty

Today some fabrics arrived that I had bid for and won on Ebay. You know how it is....Will I??? Wont I ????? Going to Australia, can't afford to spend any money.....need to make some cushions before I go.......they look pretty good but are they as good as they look.
Well all I can say is I wept when I opened up the parcel. Not only were they individually wrapped in white tissue paper, with pretty lucky kitten stickers....they were absolute beauties. This one that looks 100 times better in the flesh. It has tiny Shibori in stripes like a subtle rainbow with cranes flying through the colours. I can't work out how they are done....so much work in them they must be hand painted. You would need a very steady hand, there are such tiny tiny lines of silver through it all. How on Earth am I going to cut into them???
These ones are rich and bold and will be fabulous for cushions. A red one and a Purple one. Half an Obi in each.We went to the Sudbury silk shop on Wednesday too and I bought some truly gorgeous Tie silks to match the purple fabrics that I knew were coming


Keep your eye on the blog for what gets made from these and more......

YOU HAVE NO IDEA... how, despite the long distance that there is between us we are still so close ..I ALSO have been buying fabric an the internet.ANd have found some lovely silk kimono fabric with gold cranes and fans.. The only problem was that the fabric went to another Sue Thomas in Adelaide and so by the time they realised and the fabric was returned, it was about 10 weeks later!!!!Still luckily worth the wait...XXxxXX

Know the feeling of an incredible fabric purchase!! Can't say I've allowed myself to go down the ebay track yet- too frightened I'd get sucked down the consumer vortex and never return.... Only a matter of days til you head off Joey, lol Mard xx
