OMG look what I found!!!!

... She said stamping her feet while happy dancing around the room.

A months ago I headed to a part of the metro area that I don't usually visit to pick something up for DH. I recalled that there were a large fabric and a smaller needlework store in the vicinity so I decided to make my way home via these shops.

I had NO intention at all to buy something or anything, I just wanted to have a mooch* around inside these stores and see what they had.

At the fabric store I looked all around and as I was about to leave I saw a long wall of quilting fabric. I wandered over and began looking at all the bolts lined up on the shelving and then...
I saw...

something I just...

HAD TO HAVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Temari printed cotton slub fabric from Japan. It has such a beautiful indigo background. You could make Noren with this fabric, or a wall hanging, it would be nice as a small table cloth for tea service too. I purchased the entire 7 metres left on the bolt.

Also I came across these fabrics from Michael Miller when alerted to them by the lovely ladies over at the Temari Challenge group. I purchased these at this store. They arrived in the post this week. As you can see there are four colourways in this fabric. They also have a selection of other type the word temari into this link to see related printed fabric. What will I make with these? Well I don't really know to be honest.

*Mooch can mean many things including stealing or sponging, but in my case I definitely did not mean either of these things. I use it as the second meaning which is wandering around without any purpose.


  1. I love it! Congrats on that find.
