threads...

I was smitten by this lovely Japanese fabric with prints of thread cards! So a little piece ended up finding its way to my letter box, along with some rubber stamps, fabric stamping inks and linen tape. And it all arrived beautifully wrapped from Karaku along with a little cotton bag hand stamped with my name! Etsy sellers always seem to add a little love to their sales. Very much appreciated.
Earlier in the year I had also fallen for these lovely Japanese linen button prints. I'm, not sure what to do with these yet. I have lots of ideas, but I love the fabric how it is as well. I might frame a piece. I don't know much about contemporary Japanese fabric designers, but would like to find out more. The button fabrics are unnamed, but the threads are from the Trefle range by Kokka, but the piece I have is quite small, so the designer might be chopped off.


Finally, in Japanese style, lets celebrate the blossom. Our cherry tree is bursting with pink at the end of the garden right now. Little Cotton Rabbits is also celebrating spring with a giveaway too, have a look here.

And on the blossom theme, here are some of my favorite vintage fabrics (all designers unknown)...


Happy hanami!
