This blog should be called "The Adventures of a Fabric Junkie!". I am passionate about fabric, threads, colours and textures. I can record my crazy quilting, sane quilting, embroidery and everything else that I consider important in my life.

Heavenly Embellishments


Heavenly Embellishments
Originally uploaded by Crazydolldresser.
We've arrived!! Mary Lewis and I have finally realised the beginning of our dream, Mary has put the website on the net and I've been busy making embellishment baggies or squishies, in crazy quilters' language. We hope to gradually build up our products to include laces, charms, dyes, Dyer's Delight packs of fabrics, trims and threads in creams and natural colours, silk ribbons and tiny bead containers. These tiny containers will be great to storing mixed dye colours as well. Mary and I can hardly wait for our little venture into the big wide world of business to take off........I'm just wondering how much time we'll have for crazy quilting ourselves???

Anyway, this is the contents of a sample Pastel Assortment pack which is colour co-ordinated to match the silk print. The larger Bliss bags will also contain 8 x 6 inch squares of matching fabrics - definitely no cottons either because we both want our bags to be pure quality and therefore they will only include embellishments that we would like to buy ourselves.

Where is the website? I have your flickr site but not the site that sells the packs - can you let us know?

Well, how fun! I didn't realize this was a new venture for you - wouldn't have made any difference to my ordering. Congratulations on realizing a dream!
