My contribution to Floral Friday fabric is this beautiful violets fabric. I don't usually have a lot of mauve or purple fabrics but when I saw this I had to buy it, all 2 metres of it plus fat 1/4's in the range. I have had this fabric for a really long time and have always been going to design something for it but the truth is I can't bear to cut it up (how silly is that). I get such pleasure when I look at all those gorgeous violets. As a little girl my Nanna had the silk type that she used to wear as a brooch and I loved them. Even one of my bears in Bear Posies quilt is called Violet and has a posy of Violets. I think also the fabric has vintage cards etc. on it and I love that as well.

My Favorite Thing Today is:
My old Singer Sewing machine my husband bought me for our 25th wedding Anniversary. It has lots & lots of my other favourite sewing bits and pieces on it. Thimbles, my great grandmothers needle container, my Nannas pin tin, a lovely spool box my daughter bought me when she first started working, old cotton reels and other treasures. You may have guessed by now that I am a bit of a "pack rat" but only with certain things. My husband went out one Saturday while I was working and bought it in a little country village about an hours drive from where we live. It is still in working order with a new belt in the draw.

I love designing my own patterns which I have named Rag-tag Stitchin' designs. I design all kinds of stitcheries and applique for quilts etc. I love designing Christmas projects especially. My Husband and my Family and friends are the most important people in my life.
