The fabrics look wonderful and that's the longest washing line I have ever seen!

Hey Harriet said...

Yes that is quite a lengthy washing line you have there. Don't they look so cheerful hanging in your yard like that! Now that they're washed it means that they are one step closer to being made into something fab! Hey your place looks very rural. It must be so nice to live somewhere so quiet and peaceful. Unless you have a couple of high rise unit blocks on either side of you filled with noisy neighbours and I just can't see them here in your photos ;D

It's a very cool contrast to see this bold fabrics against a natural landscape. Very excited to see your upcoming projects!

They look picture perfect hanging on the line. I have a stack of Ikea fabrics I haven't touched yet. Daughter has claimed a piece for her new apartment. I'll be doing some sewing for her by summer's end.

Ikea has some great fabrics and boy, I wouldn't mind being your neighbor. What a beautiful sight!! They look so happy just hanging there.

Oh wow, you have quite some land to hang those fabrics to dry! I love houses with a view!

You should let them hang there, they look gorgeous! Wasling-line art!

Oh my goodness - those are fabulous! And I thought that even before I went on to read what a steal they were! Can't wait to see what you do with them.

The dolls continue to amaze me . . .

jacquie said...

if i were driving by your house i would park my car, walk into your backyard and start taking pictures. those are amazing fabrics...i LOVE them. can't wait to see what you do with them.

Is that a better way to dry? When I dry my fabrics in the dryer, they tend to wrinkle up - of course, that might be because I put them in a garment bag....I'm half thinking of stringing up a line to dry my future fabrics........

They look so happy to be waving in the air! Those are fantastic fabrics. I think I need to spend some quality time there.........
