A True Surprise!

There are few real surprises in life once you’re an adult (or certainly few nice ones!) so it made my day yesterday to receive a free gift of two metres of fabric from Adam Ross Fabrics!

I received a red chiffon with little white dots, which is very useable even if it’s not a colour I’d likely choose for myself. Most surprising of all is that I believe I’ve only purchased twice from ARF, and so I don’t think of myself as a loyal, big spender there.

And the fabric keeps rolling in (though these aren’t surprises, these are purchases) as samples of silk, crepe de chine, tulle, satin, lace, organza, etc. continue to arrive. These are all in pursuit of the perfect fabrics in which to make my wedding dress and I will need about three different types of fabric all in the same shade to complete my planned design, which is going to be no mean feat to obtain!

Some beautiful Beckford Silk samples arrived today… but you only get to see the envelope! 😉

m still on the look out for very soft tulle so if anyone has any suggestions please let me know! 🙂
