The fat quarter of my Swirly Stripes fabric arrived in the post today. I am so totally pleased with it!
The background is a lovely greeny-blue (makes me think a bit of summery blue skies...but with a hint of green) and the swirls are more vibrant that fuschia pink. The base fabric is a natural cotton colour - so a bit creamy-brown.
I ordered my print on the organic cotton knit. It is so soft and, surprisingly to me, has pretty good recovery when stretched. I am really, really pleased.
I will put it in the wash a bit later, hang it out and maybe tomorrow afternoon have a little play with it. See what co-ordinating fabric I have...think about what I will make from it...and if I have the courage I will cut something from it. Tomorrow. Maybe.
Or. Maybe, I will just cuddle it and gaze adoringly at it until I am completely bored with it. And only then chop it up.
Right now, I sit here with a broken baby toe. I will spare you a photo - my little toe is sticking out at a slightly odd angle. [The NHS website says that you can treat your toe at home, unless it is at a 'severe' angle...hence I say 'slightly odd angle'! I really don't want to go to A&E!] Baby toe still under a cold pack; fabric strapping at the ready to bandage it to the next toe...once the Ibuprofen kicks in!
Tomorrow, I will hopefully have a Ta-Dah moment with Ava's complete memory coins. Keep your eyes peeled.
