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...
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.
