Stash enhancement......

sounds a bit like an advertisement ..... but I did add a little bit more to my stash on my recent trip to Vancouver. These fabrics are from Maiwa Fabrics on Granville Island in Vancouver and are hand dyed. Maiwa Fabrics is a great inspirationl store - lots of hand dyes for fabrics and wools. I just love going there when I am in Vancouver.




I also picked up a few new Christmas fabrics to make Aprons with. I just love the subtle colors of the new fabrics. They were purchased at the Cloth Shop.

My beautiful new header on the top of my blog is a picture of my first Sunflower - they are finally starting to bloom..... as the nights are getting colder, I am sure that they won't be around for long.
