On one of my recent posts, I mentioned that I had bought some fabric from Donna Flower. A few days later, my parcels arrived. The presentation is always so neat and pretty.
You can always rely on Donna's website for a fantastic selection of vintage fabrics! It is no surprise, that Cath Kidston has mentioned Donna as being a supplier of antique & vintage fabrics in her latest book SEW!.
I was very disappointed not to have been able to attend Donna's Open house event recently but these parcels made up for it in some way.
I like a wide variety of textiles, old and new. My absolute favourites are vintage ones, especially dating from the 1930's, 40's & 50's.
1950's Abstract Floral Cotton
1950's French Floral Fabric (So beautiful!)
1950's Purple Rose Velvet Fabric (Photo doesn't really do it justice!)
1940's Bloomsbury Style Floral Fabric (Love it!)
1940's fabric Red Roses on Blue
1950's Stylised Floral Fabric (Really love the design)
Other textiles obtained recently. I acquired some discontinued sample books - Cath Kidston and Baer & Ingram full of fabric and wallpaper samples.

I hope that you are all enjoying the half term holidays what ever you are up to! No school runs or getting packed lunches ready for a while ;-))
