Do you like Elephants?

I have had some VERY good elephants just in.  In fact this whole line is super.  I don't normally buy nursery ranges as the designs are usually too twee for me, but this one is a cracker.  Bungle Jungle by Tim and Beck for Moda Fabrics.  Rebecca and Tim are a husband and wife team living in California, and this debut collection for Moda is brilliant... I'm going to put it down to all that sunshine and rollerblading.

The colours are bright and great for girls or boys, and the animals are simple and graphic.  And, did I mention the elephants?!

We have nine prints from the collection, the best nine of course, and you can buy them as a fat quarter bundle here.  I also went crazy and got in some charm packs... brilliant if you want to whip up a quick cot quilt for a gift.

Would you like to win one of these bundles?  Well get yourself over to Ali's blog as she is hosting a giveaway for me... Hurrah!

It's the 'C' word again.

I know.  I'm sorry to do this to you but it is happening.  Summer will be over soon (shhh) and Christmas is coming.  Now, are you a 'planner-aheader' or are you a 'oh-bugger-is-it-the-middle-of-December-alreadyer'? I'm a bit of both.

So, Christmas.  Are you making plans?  If not, WHY NOT? For goodess sake - it's September already!!  For those of you who are organised then we have some lovely festive fabrics.  We have the new line from Aneela Hoey, Cherry Christmas.  Rosey robins and wintery washing lines with some fab blenders which are good for all year. Aneela Hoey does a top notch blender.

And then we have the three best prints from Basic Grey Blitzens.  These are more 'winter woodland' than in-your-face Christmas.  There are deer and squirrels, rabbits and toadstalls.

Both of these are available off the bolt and in bundles: Blitzens here and Cherry Christmas here.
