The problem with fabric shops is that every time I go into my local one they have such lovely things that you need to buy as soon as you see it or it will have sold out by the time you come back!
I’ve been fairly restrained with purchasing fabric (or so I thought). I’ve been trying to use up what I have in my stash rather than resorting to buying anything else.
However, when I popped into the shop the other day, I was surprised to find this fabric that I had seen months ago and which had sold out had now been restocked. So a week later, I returned and whilst buying fabric for the Pendrell blouse, I ended up buying 4.5 metres of a grey linen with green, black and white birds… I decided to grab my chance to get it before it sold out again. I’m hoping to turn this lovely material into some very posh Roman blinds…
I did also consider this linen material that is more like a traditional French toile with black birds. Both I think are beautiful. However at £22/metre this one will have to wait until I win the lottery!
