Show and Tell!

Buying fabric in the UK is definitely on the up, with some great new on-line shops appearing giving us much more choice. Many of the shops have blogs or newsletters which are a great way of keeping up to date with new products, sales and give-aways and  The Fabric Loft is no exception.

 I stumbled across the site a few weeks ago and couldn't resist the above print. It's the first time I've seen the Leanika range and I love this mod circles. It doesn't show up too well on the photos but the circles are a pale blue. I'm hoping one day soon to find the time to turn it into a piece of clothing for myself. One has to dream!! While I was on the site I found Lizzet's blog and she was having a giveaway with the chance of winning 4 fat quarters of your choice, well it would have been rude not to enter!

So 4 fat quarters later!
Yes I was one of the lucky winners, remember me saying I never win anything, well it seems my luck has changed!

It was a tough decision choosing just 4!
I finally decided on Nicey Jane Hop Dot in olive and sky, Leanika mod circles in pink and mingle rings in leaf. Four geometrics prints that I can imagine using for many different projects. So a big thank you to Lizzet at the Fabric Loft for such a generous giveaway, and for such a great service, I have a sneaky feeling I'll be a returning customer!


  1. Gorgeous fabrics! You're so right - the UK fabric trade is on the way up :)

  2. Oooh well done you- wonderful fabric!

  3. Congratulations on that win! And you're right, the UK fabric shops are just getting better and better - and Lizzet is so nice and has fab fabrics.

  4. Lovely fabrics (keep entering those give-aways!). Hope you get a chance to make yourself something. Juliex

  5. Perhaps it was Lizzet who commented on my blog - I will have to go and investigate (slightly nervously as I can feel my credit card cowering in my purse!)

  6. Oh! So glad you like the fabrics :) Thank you so much for you kind comments and keep entering the giveways, I am hoping to have one every month!
