Little thoughts

Little thoughts: need more sleep! :)

It's the little things...

I really like details in things, the little added extras that make something extra special, like when you get a dessert at a small restaurant and they make shapes in the icing sugar on your plate, or the little bow on a purchase of something that you buy pretty often.  It really makes my day to have that small but so not insignificant touch of love to something, so I was so deeply touched and impressed by the package I received in the post today.  I'd entered a give away online to win some fabric from a new fabric shop, sadly I didn't win, but I did find something on there that I needed and so I put my order in.  I ordered the fabric on Sunday, it arrived fantastic is that?  I don't know whether it's just because I've bought fabric mostly from America lately and am used to waiting for the post, but it was amazing that it arrived so quickly.  The other very impressive thing was how it was packaged.  Now as you know I love ordering fabric online and this has to be some of the best packaged fabric I've received!

Pretty tissue paper with matching stickers to keep it closed

Carefully taken off it reveals the pretty fabric tied in a lovely colour coordinating ribbon

I know it's a little bit silly gushing over packaging, but they're just starting out their business and I think this is the type of stuff that people will keep coming back for.  It's nice to see someone take the care with something that is so precious to me.  I'd like to point out that I'm not affiliated with the shop or it's owners, I'm just a happy little bunny!

Thanks a bunch Dragonfly fabrics!  Can't wait to get sewing now!


  1. What a lovely parcel, how gorgeous, and I love the website - what are you going to make with your fabric?

  2. Wow, great fabric choice and the shop seens great. I should try. What are you making.?

  3. I cant wait either ;-) Does look such a lovely wee parcel though. And the fabric looks absolutely gorgeous!

  4. I agree 100%. As the saying goes, it's the thought that counts, and even a little bit of thought can make something special!
    Happy sewing with the new fabric!

  5. It will hopefully be a Pendrell for Sarah...but will need to do a trial run with some cheapo fabric first considering the last time I tried to make one! haha!

    Yeah I know, get on with it!

  6. That is a beautiful package and gorgeous fabric too.
