Fabric Friday Flowers

It is Friday. I can't believe it. It is the end to another busy week and the beginning of a new month. We are entering a crazy time of the year. Snatching bits of time to sew keeps me sane even when life is off kilter.
I like this vintage inspired fabric with daisies in a grid. I got them on sale. Red and blue are such a basic to my fabric stash.Speaking of daisies. Lori's Daisy Cottage fabric is coming out this week into stores. I don't have any in my hands yet, but will soon. In the spirit of Daisy Cottage I thought I would show a couple vintage daisy fabrics I have. I love flowers in fabric.This is another daisy in a 70's vintage fabric. Blue and rust/brown were always paired together back in my high school and college days. I went through a time of hating 70's fabric but I love it now.
This floral rose fabric was given to me by my sweet friend in Texas, Elaine. Elaine's blog is Muddling Through. We have a lot in common and sometimes we muddle through together. Elaine knows I've been searching for the dress fabric shown in the photo below.
It is absolutely reminiscent of the blue fabric I was wearing. What a thoughtful treat for me. Elaine knew she had something in her stash similar and mailed it to me as a surprise. Thank you Elaine.

So many new fabrics will be bursting into the stores since Quilt Market is over now. It is exciting to see what is coming out. Happy Weekend everyone. Fall back to an extra hour of sleep. Yayy.

An extra hour of sleep? Yipee -- I need it after market. Great fabric Nanette -- I especially love those first two little prints!

The blue floral is beautiful! Can you still make the face you made on that photo Nanette?

Nanette, I just love that picture of you.
And we don't have Daylight Savings Time here in AZ. My first time ever to not change clocks!

I think we have the same relationship with 70's fabric. I just found a tablecloth from the 1970's at a thrift store in California...mushrooms everywhere. When I was a teen in the 1970's I thought the colors (green, yellow, orange) and motifs (mushrooms, frogs, etc.) were dreadful...now I'm buying fabrics and tablecloths here and there!

I have also opened my mailbox to find someone has mailed me fabric ... just because. What a wonderful (blog) world we live in.

But mostly I am loving the hair. Oh yes. I know that hair because I have worn it.

Thanks ~

I got some of those first two in a jelly roll of 1930's prints a while back. They are so sweet, I could use a lot more. Love shopping the stash. (And adding to it!) It IS funny how some fabrics will just take you right back into the past, funny how our memories work.

Glad you found the fabric in the first picture. Love all the others too.

Fun 70's fabrics! How great that your friend found something so similar to your photo--sweet.

Forgot about that extra hour! I sure can use it :)

Love your weekly fabric report on Fridays and I have to say as a 56 yr old who grew up in the 60's and 70's I still really dislike 70's fabrics. LOL
Although I have become fond of the old olive green and the gold but not together!
