I do believe that the sun is starting to peek through on a more regular basis and that spring may finally be here!
I won’t say that too loudly though, in case I jinx it and it goes away.
Officially the first day of Spring was 20th of March but we all know that it didn’t really feel like Spring at all that day. But now there is some heat in the air and in the soil, we may actually get some nice spring like weather. But with the sunshine comes some unforeseen problems – the house looks bare and grimy.
So it’s time for a good old fashioned spring clean and an update. Now this can be as simple as some new cushions for the sofa. Or a fresh new bedpsread. Or tablecloth for those afternoon teas we’ve been talking about – or is that just my friends and I?
Here at Elizabeth Rose NI, we have a wide variety of cotton fabrics for you to make just about anything. There are really too many to mention indvidually, but we are certain to have something for you.
Two of their latest ranges – Birds and Butterflies and Scottish Heritage – are available now and you may remember that we featured their ranges as part of our fabrics of the month back in February, when we thought spring was coming in.
Now I grabbed some of the Scottish Heritage fabric range for a friend’s birthday present. Not the usual gift voucher I am prone to supply for such occasions. She now has all the fabric she needs to make herself a fab Bedspread or if she so chooses a stunning wall hanging.
As with all the Freedom Fabrics ranges, they are 100% cotton so whatever she chooses, or you do, they will wash superbly.
Come in store and peek though the full range of Freedom Fabrics range and indeed all the other cotton fabrics just waiting for your inspiration.
Now on a slightly different note. We are always looking forward here and indeed some of the trends for Autumn Winter 2018 are already making an appearance. Don’t shout at us though, but there looks as if there will be some stunning colours in wool for all those winter jumpers. Need to keep warm if it is going to be as bad and as long as the one just past.
But we are actually looking forward to our annual Sew Saturday event. We know that this event has become popular for all our crafty family and we will be letting you know more about the event as the months go on., but for now just a hint. We will hosting an unique sewing event and everyone can join in.
Hope to see you and the sunshine soon.
