19. FABRICS - jeni baker

Talking of Geometrics one of my recent fave fabric releases was "Geometric Bliss" by Jeni Baker at Art Gallery fabrics. So it was a great to read Jeni's blog and see all the stylish things she has been making with her bold fabrics. Jeni also has a fascinating pinterest board that shows not only her Geometric Bliss collection but also all the vintage inspirations behind it.

I have been negligent of my blog for a while - but not because I haven't been busy....

A new fabric collection out in stores in April - Creatures and Critters 3 and another collection called Jump into Spring soon to follow.



Also getting ready for Surtex...... yes it is in May, have to start now!
