...and now...

Mattress mission accomplished - it went exactly according to prediction - why don't they build mattresses with handles!!! Or at the very least, with less slippery fabric. It really was a bit of a giggle, but we got there and it is now tucked away in the loft for winter. So, I've spent the past week loading up the studio, arranging and rearranging until I got something that ''worked'', and playing with some of the new fabrics along the way. This is what it's looking like now ...
It's a pretty little room - am really happy with how it looks and feels. It's got nice vibes! Course that could have something to do with the fact that it's full of fabrics that I love...

This is a new range from Moda - called "Looking Back" - it's got a real country feel to it - gorgeous blues, tans and reds - been a while since I've 'done' country, but I was tempted when shown these fabrics - quite yummy patterns and colours. I've also been playing with some very very very nice new fabrics from another Moda range called ''Evening Mist'' - the softest gentlest colours ever. I'll show you next post 'cos I should have it finished by then.

Here's a couple of new patterns that arrived this week - this from Simone Gooding who designs under the name of "May Blossom". I've not had Simone's patterns before - isn't this gorgeous!

This is another of Simone's patterns - so beautiful.

And this is Marg Low's lovely little Sweet Heart Birdie pattern - very sweet indeed!There's plenty more to come but that's my lot for today - have got birdies wings to bead, and strips of fabric to stitch.

Happy stitching

Jenny

Hi Jenny, it's all looking so sweet and serene, good on you girl. Re the handles on matresses, ummm, rmember the days when they had them - we used to call them panic handles, when the other one in the bed rolled over and you hung on for dear life LOL, super kingsize beds solved that problem.
