New Fabric

I hadn't bought any fabric at all since the show in November, though I think I might head up to Abakhan in Preston (there's a new bigger shop) one Saturday morning soon. Anyway today I bought some knits in the Totallyfabrics 1/2 price sale.
I got 5m of the viscose jersey in cream (picture below). I bought so much becuase it is a great price and it would let me make 3 knit tops from that yardage I should think. Cream is a great basic and works with both of the planned SWAP collections for knit tops

I also bought 2 metres of lime/olive crinkle knitted jersey which I thought might work for the Botanical Garden SWAP, though it depends on exactly what shade of lime it turns out to be and what the fabric is like. It is hard to tell on a little picture on the computer.

Ooh, can I come to Abakhan??? I used to go to their shop in North Wales as my parents lived in Meliden (near Rhyl) for a while. I loved that shop! The bargains! I really miss fabric shops like that over here in NZ, but it would be a long trip for fabric Lol!

Ooh lovely new fabric. Hope you get lots more lovely things at Abhakhan. Nothing like buying fabric for cheering a person up
