Below is the selections of fabric I was playing with this afternoon. I am attempting to go for the crazy colour look.... I really wanted to do a natural linen as the base and coloured prints as the flags BUT I want to see what it will look like with a colourful printed fabric as a base.... we will see!

It could work or it could not....

I unfortunately have far too many secret projects on the go - which is really no fun when you are blogging 


I'm all stocked up with Aurifil threads

Thats me all caught up
