Orient Themes….

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

I clearly am channelling all things orientesque. What with my one hour kimono madness of late I was hankering for something new so took a moazy on down to my friends shop in Dunstable, Bedfordshire called My Sewing Basket.

It’s safe to say dear reader that I am a bargain hunter and rarely will pay full retail on anything but it doesn’t stop me sniffing around like an old blood hound 🙂

Fortunately for MSB not me, the fabric you see here was just waaaay too much for me to resist. 100% cotton and a good solid weight I decided immediately to hang the cost and get .75m of each for a couple of tote bags as I only really have time for quick easy makes right now plus being more costly than I would normally pay £13.99/m I couldn’t make myself go for the full meter of each….. OK so I’m a bit tight …. I can take that criticism on the chin 🙂

MSB have the most awesome collection of quilting cottons (Del …. Would never get you out of there) every colour and theme you could ever imagine!

Oops! Get me, digressing by way of a change.

Anyways …. Tomorrow I hope to make time for at least one tote (a gal can NEVER have too many bags) and will pop a pic or ten here for your scrutinisation.

What are y’all up to this weekend? Any quick satisfying makes happening else where on the Planet?

    Gorgeous. There needs to be a lined winter kimono robe in your future. With black velvet lapels.

    O – O – O my goodness! Absolutely kee-rect, Dear One – I might never leave. LOVE those prints – my autumn colours! And love the idea of lining some of them. 🙂 🙂 🙂
