Brought to you by the 1970s...



Boy have I been a slack little blogger! Where have I been you ask? Buried under a 30kg pile of vintage fabrics!!
On the weekend I caught up with a friend I used to work with in my film industry days. She had recently helped her grandparents move and came across a huge stash of fabrics that her grandma had been storing since the seventies.
To my delight, I sprang in to her mind and she gave me a call to see if I would be interested in using them. Would I??!!!
The fabrics are just gorgeous and there is so much of it that the muscles in my arms are still sore from carting the huge pile around the place...not sure if that's more a reflection on the size of the stash or the weediness of my arms!!
Anyhoo, you can see a few of the fabrics hanging out to dry above. I have been washing and drying for two days and am still only about a third of the way through. Lucky I had a cute little helper in the form of our dog Alice :)
In other news, I have been busy working on a few custom items and will probably introduce the new styles into my range shortly so stay tuned...

Oh those blue and white patterened fabrics are something that I am looking for for summer beachy bridesmaid dresses - thank you for the inspiration :)
