do I love this fabric or what....

I was in Big W and thought i would just check their fat 1/4's. And i found these....

You very rarely find fabrics like these in the patchwork shops here [although one of them does have a few vintage fabrics and a beautiful range of Kaffe Fasset]

Who'd have thot.. [as Kath would say!] that i would find fabrics [from Indygo Junction, no less] in the el cheapo of dept stores!!!

Anyway i have been making Christmas cards of the 'very quick variety' and made some using this fabric. Not what i originally intended it for tho!

The background of these are fabric pastels, i love smudging and blending them. My sewing is particularly wonky, i forgot to change the stitch down,
[nahh i really meant to do it like that!]

Sant looks like he's been tippling a bit much egg nog, dont ya think !! jenxo

Thanks so much for visiting my blog again and your lovely comments! I love your Christmas cards and your fabrics were a great find. The fabric pastels look great - very effective.

Would love to do a swap with you of some ATC's if you were interested. No rush if you are though - I know it's a busy time of year.

Take care
