Fabric Love

Posted on

In my house the sound of the postman knocking is like magic.  It probably means there is something that won’t go through the letter box and it’s more than likely to be raw material for a bear or fabric.

Even my littlest gets as excited as me which is lovely.  In a very simple way her excitement adds to mine as it’s just joyful to see her laughing at all the parcels. Even before we have started to open them she is jumping about and shouting for me to get scissors to “ope” the packages. 
Once open I like to take pictures of the fabrics to keep in my fabric photo folder. This time though my little minx insisted on perching atop the pile making us both giggle.

There was a lovely collection in this delivery and something from Amazon too. I ordered a copy of #TheTudorTailor a book about creating Tudor Style Costumes.

I can’t wait to start reading up about fabric choices and courtly dresses. Who wants to dress up as a peasant? He he.

We put away the fabric eventually but not until there had been some fabric love. It’s so nice to see that my littlest loves the fabric choices I make. Of course a lot of what I make will end up in her wardrobe lol. I do love this picture. It epitomises how we feel in this house about fabric and crafting. I love that I am able to teach my children to love being creative.

We picked our favourite. Which was given the official “cute” hug lol. It was this lovely aqua blue with butterflies all over.
