would anyone in Ireland like some fabric?

Some lengths of fabric have been stashed away in my domestic goddess drawer for so long that I've forgotten what I intended to make from them, if anything. Would anyone like some fabric?

*** UPDATE: All fabrics have now been claimed ***


Brunschwig & Fils, "Big Sky", a wild west toile


Sanderson, "Etchings & Roses" from their Empire collection. This is quite a heavy fabric, perfect for recovering an office chair.


A red toile on a light gold background - the cream is a bit more golden than it looks in this image.  Good for cushion covers or suchlike.

I'll post these to anyone in Ireland who wants them - just drop me an email (the address is in the sidebar over there) and let me know which one you would like. I have two or three metres of each and will send them to the people who are first to express an interest.

  2. What a generous benefactor you are Mise.
    Some lucky Irish lass with nimble fingers will be overjoyed with this freebie. XXXX

  3. Hello Mise:
    Oh, if only we had known that this most generous of offers was coming..............we should have moved to faded Georgian splendour in the west coast of Ireland [a long held dream], learned how to thread a needle and made every effort not to be the domestic incompetents which we most definitely are...............as we have done none of these......guess that means we are counted out!!

  4. No thank you. I have no intention of doing anything remotely useful with my own ancient and neglected fabric stash. Kind of you to offer, though!

  5. As I am in Ireland (no, really, I feel I am in Ireland, though the postal service may disagree..) I shall express interest in the toile. And since I shall be holidaying on the south coast of the isle, postage may not necessarily be needed! How can you part with the toile? Does it not embody your whole esprit?

  6. I was going to lament that I don't live in Ireland ...... but then I remembered the size of my stash, and the fact that I am trying to use it up, not add to it! I was also going to try and qualify by saying that my late aunt and uncle lived in Galway ........

  7. I love that Western one. I don't do things with fabric though, so don't send it to me.

  8. A very generous offer Mise
    I never met a toile I did not like, the same goes for linen,tapestry, silk and lace. I decline your generous offer and do not qualify.It will no doubt find the right home

  9. Wild west toile. How did I not know such a thing exists?

  10. It's not often I complain about living in Australia, but I'm making an exception this time! That etchings & roses fabric is pretty swish.

  11. What a generous gesture, Mise! Are you sure you don't want to quilt a patchwork ballgown from these? No, I didn't really think so...

    They are very lovely, though.

  12. These are lovely fabrics (he said manfully), and you're very thoughtful to offer them. If I could do practical justice to them, I might stake a claim.

  13. Jane and Lance, surely you employ a seamstress? But, yes, one day you must move to the west coast of Ireland; there is no better place. I shall leave my Georgian splendor out in the sun to further fade pending your arrival.

  14. Frayedattheedge, that also qualifies you to play for our local football team, if you are interested? I'll serve fairy cakes around at my house after every match.

  15. Annie, it's true, you're entirely too free-spirited for curtain-making.

    Stan, it's very noble of you to comment on a fabric post. I'd like to award you three points.

  16. I am so sad to hear they have all been claimed. They were all pretty unique looking and would have been useful for inspiration if nothing else ....

    ReplyDelete
  17. Good, they're gone! Now you can concentrate on flowers.

  18. Darn it, I've been stitched up! I'm too late to claim any of the pretty fabric, I don't need any anyway 'cos I have an overflowing domestic goddess drawer myself, AND I don't even live in Ireland....

  19. So sorry I missed your very generous fabric offer (sorry for me).Liked your post on blogging.Just a little too busy to blog every week at the moment but yes that would be ideal

  20. i've missed the boat , waving appreciatively from the shoreline anyway.

  21. Oh, I'm glad you were able to get rid of them all. If you hadn't, I'd have felt duty bound to offer and then I'd have to start a fabric collection that I wouldn't know what to do with.
    Phew!

  22. Damn. My habit of being one of those aforementioned sporadic bloggers has meant I missed out on this.

    Then again, probably just as well as I would have said yes and then it would have joined my own sad stash...

    You have wonderful taste though.

You're looking particularly well.
