"Fabric Sale". It was in a little stand alone shop I have driven past lots of times. This time I stopped.
The fabric in question was some "left overs" from a boutique run by a local designer and the range was limited.
I did manage to find some pieces I simply had to have.
Delicious sheer cream silk and and grey- blue silk/satin found their way into my stash.
I couldn't resist the soft and floaty pink to red silk: it reminds me of the colours of hibiscus and I think it will make sensational scarves.
As I was leaving the shop I noticed some really crisp white cotton and so I bought a couple of metres of that as well. It is called paper touch cotton. I have never heard of fabric called by that name but it is a perfect description of this gorgeous fabric.
This fabric is so lovely to touch and although I am not sure how I will use it I am thrilled to have bought it. Oh did I tell you it was $5 a metre!!!!!
What a bargain. I think I will have to go back tomorrow in case there is anything left.
