    Fabric
    Gaynor and her boyfriend Mike have been on holiday in Florida and has managed to bring back a fair amount of the wonderful American fabrics at a much more reasonable price that can be found in the UK. Thanks to Mike for being so patient in Walmart/JoAnn's fabrics etc. Also big thanks to Mrs T who is hard at work washing all the fabrics.

    Here are some shots of Mike helping with fabric pickup, Mr T helping to cut up fabric and Mrs T in full washing mode!
