I decided the other week to take the plunge again and to buy fabric from the US.
So after getting advice from Kelly at handmade at home and reading a great article on Manda's blog I placed my order. I've only done it once before about 12 months ago and it wasn't until after I'd paid taxes and import duties that I realised there was such a thing! Very naive! So as you can imagine it become quite expensive and it rather put me off.
That was until I saw these!
"Willow" is the latest fabric range from Alexander Henry and I just love it.
I found it really difficult to decide which prints to order as I adore them all and are taken with all the colour ranges. But I kept reminding myself of the £18 limit and eventually settled on the "grove" in chocolate (above) and the "shrooms" in green (below).
I breathed a huge sigh of relief when it came through the door this morning and hadn't been stopped at customs. I can't believe how quick the parcel got here. It's as adorable as I had hoped it would be and the prints have a lovely retro feel to them. I know exactly where I'm going to use them. So now if only I could some how find some extra time in the day to get all theses projects done that I have floating around in my head, I would be a very happy woman indeed.
