Rain, Rain, Stay All Day

It rained steadily all day yesterday, sometimes normal soaking rain, other times really bucketing down. And don't I wish our rain water tanks were connected to the gutters right now!

All this rain is lovely and I am enjoying the return of the cool weather and raindrops. Another really heavy downpour visited this morning whilst I was drooling over some fabric I spotted yesterday.

I found the new Alexander Henry April Showers print, pictured above, on the Kelani Fabrics website. Isn't it just amazing? The print comes in two colour ways of pink or blue. I am leaning toward the blue myself. I think I might buy two lots. One with which to make Silly Gilly stock and the other for my 'Favourite Fabric' stash! I've bought from Kelani before and the customer service and speedy postage is a dream. Free postage too!

The April Showers print reminds me of another print I just adore and own in my 'Favourite Fabric' stash. Michael Miller's Spring Showers. The poor fabrics I have in that stash. Only to be fondled and admired, maybe never to be used!! If only I didn't choose hard to get fabric when I fall in fabric love... And yes Jodie, if I ever cut into this fabric, you can have the selvedge!


Aren't both these prints just soooo super cute!? So girly and pretty and fifties. So me. Not that I'm saying I'm girly and pretty. Well maybe a little pretty.... And I'm not fifty, not that that would matter. I'm only coming up to 35 and that's a whole different post altogether.... Just repeat to myself, no issues, no issues.......

I have been trying to ignore the love of the kelani fabric but I fear I can't hold out much longer! It is sooooo cute, love the blue too. The spring showers is just gorgeous too

35 is the best! Don't worry. You'll love it!

The rain is fantastic! There was a great downpour at about 5.30am this morning. I know the time because I had a phone call whilst deeply asleep! >:(
