Folklore!

The weekend is nearly over and I have a few busy days ahead - thank goodness! Four weeks have passed, now another two weeks and two days to go. Every day I get great feelings of determination and then the head rules the heart - what if - what if I undo all that brilliant work!

That being the case, what can I show you? All you repro girls who love the brights will adore Folklore ... French reproductions from early 18th century. I decided to brighten our bright, sunny day by opening the pack of fat quarters!

I think they are just divine! The few browns on the right hand side are there for auditioning purposes. It has been a long time since I have seen a repro range that has thrilled me so much! I hope you enjoy the little I can offer at this stage. Still doing my DSLR homework - I think maybe Olympus is the forerunner at this stage - great reviews and the smallest - I chit-chat away in front of DH and ... silence! ... maybe he's thinking how expensive a divorce would be, lol!
Happy sewing!

I think your head is right -- take your time and make sure that healing is all done! I had to squeal over your pictures of that fat quarter pack. lol! Love it! I have to go look for it now -- and drool some more. ;D

Bunny said...

Guess I have been out of the loop. Hope you are getting better. Love your fabrics they are so pretty. I tried to go back but could not see if you were having surgery or what, hoever am happy you are on the mend. Hugs

Lovely fabrics, Lurline! Hoping your Hubby is doing well, too.....

Vivian said...

The repro fabrics are so joyful and lovely! How mistaken people are who think all 1800s repro fabrics are dull and drab and dark and dreary. These just burst with color! I may have to go buy me a few FQs!

Micki said...

You are adorable Lurline and you will be so thankful that you took your time to heal properly. I love the beautiful eye candy. I think I might need a few of those pieces!

Sue-Anne said...

My son has had two shoulder reconstructions (footy injuries)and I know from him how long the healing time seems to drag by, but it will be worth it in the end.

Love that fabric! The colours and prints are divine. I am looking forward to seeing what you make from it.

I'm glad you're taking care of yourself, Lurline:) Wishing you continued good healing!

I'm usually not one for repro's but I love so many of these colors--I may have to re-think repro's for something a little different ;)
