Fusty cutting frenzy

Before we even begin to tell you what fun we have been having in the shop today we know everyone will be on the edge of their chairs waiting for the next instalment of Sammy's holiday adventures...we have had more photos from Sammy and he is having a wonderful time.
Just chillin with the holiday romance to report but just a very relaxing time hanging out with his new friends.

Now to tell you about our afternoon of fussy cutting fun.  We have had lots of questions this week about choosing fabrics that are suitable for fussy cutting so Megan grabbed a few of the many examples from our shelves and put together a selection for some fussy cutting show and tell.....
and how gorgeous does this look..

It just makes you want to grab some fabric and start cutting..the possibilities with these fabrics seem endless.
Mayfair 4061-72
Floral Bouquet C1125

The Union Forever 4968-0111
Thanks to Megan, using only these three fabrics she has inspired us all...and such a pretty block, ready for some Broderie Perse or needle turn appliqué. We were lucky to have a delivery of Aurifil thread and Jeana Kimball needles today, just perfect for some lovely hand sewing.
Thank goodness for some cold nights, perfect for hand sewing in front of the fire...well maybe in front of the telly too.


  1. Looks lovely my favourite colors, perfect!

  2. Does the pink floral fabric come in any other colourways?

    1. Sorry Carole, it only comes in the one colourway.

  3. Thanks for the inspiration - I'm especially impressed by how she made the red berries - genius!!
