The new sewing room is taking shape nicely and its all kitted out for use! Will post a few pics in due course. It's taken quite some time but got there in the end - time appears to have just vanished these couple of months.
I thought I would just take a look at a website of interest today. I usually get a bit annoyed at newsletters randomly getting into my inbox without my say so - but it turns out I must have bought from this company before. After investigation it turns out they were on eBay aswell hence my newsletter involvement. And to be fair its a pretty nice newsletter. The company is called Frumble.
According to their website they are a little team of three people but DAMN do they stock a lot of great fabric!
Being a mega-fan of novelty print fabric this was right up my alley. I also have a friend who loves pandas so the range of 'Panda Garden' was also of interest - so cute. It comes in a range of colours - could make a fun little dress as the pandas are fairly discreet and you don't notice them at first.

I'm also a bit in love with this little bug-tastic number. I really wanted to make kitchen blinds out of this but the other half has vetoed crazy insect curtains. Sigh.
Frumble stock a whole host of designers including a ton of Japanese import stuff. Echino, Timeless Treasures, Free Spirit, Michael Miller, Robert Kaufman etc. Have a look at a few of these:
|La Loteria Natural|
|Fox and the Houndstooth|
|Round Cartoon Birds Periwinkle|
I would definitely recommend having a browse over there, lots of hidden treasures and the prices are really reasonable. Just follow the links on this post and their logo below.
There is a big sale section and great search facility to go by theme, designer, colour. There is also an extensive haberdashery for all sewing related supplies as well as gift ideas, such as these rather fab tape measures which would make a great stocking filler:
The website is now having a little Christmas holiday until 27th December however I have heard there may well be a post-Christmas sale :-)
Wishing everyone a very Happy Christmas and a great break xxx
