Flower and Fabric

Every few days I go blog hopping, soaking in the gorgeous hand dyed, stamped, painted, textured, eye candy fabrics. I dream and plan about when I'll have time to spread out yards of plain fabric and go to it! In the meantime I occasionally find a gorgeous commercial fabric I just have to buy. I add it to my boxes and piles of fabrics and every so often pull them out, admire and caress them as I think of all the things I could create. Then I fold them up and put them away. Last week I pulled out this beauty and took a quick break to cut a scarf length of fabric. This is sheer and ravels so I enclosed the edges with a French seam and I had an easy quick scarf that I wore with a white shirt and black jeans. It satisfied my fiber addiction for the week!
Like many of you I'm out in the garden this time of year. Actually down here I'm out more in the winter but with a new wild flower garden this year I'm been out more than usual. Here are a few of the wild beauties.

I've wanted to use one of my petal vases for our own cut flowers for a long time!


  1. That is by far, a fabulously gorgeous piece of fabric!!!

  2. Guy, love your news scarf! And what better vessel for your own flowers than your own vase? :D

  3. that scarf is gorgeous!! and your flowers look great in that fabulous vase :)

  4. Clever girl! French seams indeed. I am going to have to try that since that is the only sewing trick I know!

    Beautiful vase and flowers too:)

  5. when I see the vase, I see lots of finger/hand imprints... helping hands so-to-speak.... very cool! gorgeous fabric ~ definitely makes a great scarf
