New shop

While rearranging I once again realised what an awful lot of fabrics I own. And what a small part of them I actually use. I have a great supplier of English quality cotton fabrics (Liberty, Designer's guild, William Morris, Laura Ashely...) here in town so I keep buying fabrics. Some of them are seconds, many just sample pieces to bargain prices. Sometimes I just cannot leave them behind, I know you fabric addicts know what I mean! So I decided to open up the SykoFabScrap shop, an idea I've been pondering for a long time, to ease the burden on my shelves and maybe get room for those new fabrics I need to buy.... And share the joy of course, the main purpose of my business! I will be adding new stuff regularly during the following weeks.

Thank you all for the input on the pattern question, I might end up making a Christmas pattern booklet with several designs in the end.

*edit* I forgot to add the breaking news that the first two poppies on our patio showed their pretty faces this morning, how we have been waiting! I am about as crazy about flowers that I am about fabrics, but there is more magic into poppies. Isn't it amazing how a tiny poppy seed can grow up to something like this?

Yay! Congratulations on the poppies. They sure are lovely. I like the word poppy, too. It's fun to say. Good luck on the Christmas booklet. That sounds like a wonderful project. I'm sure it's going to be fun to make! Take care & I think you're a savvy and creative business woman.

I love poppies too! One showed up over our pet rat's grave in the back yard. And one summer, a mystery poppy grew in the garden! It was as tall as me with HUGE buds... we couldn't wait till it opened... finally a massive poppy in lavendar bloomed and it was the real opium poppy! I looked it up on the internet. It was so beautiful too. I saved seeds and keep growing them because they are wonderful looking! Surprise
