I went shopping on Fabricrehab last week. I haven't bought from there for quite a while and was pleased to reacquaint myself with it as they have some fab fabrics at the moment.

I think the reason I haven't bought from there for a while is that the fabrics they have tend to be on the bolder side of life, with more primary based colours and these haven't suited my projects of late.

This time however they had just what I was after. As well as picking up some great pieces from the Metro Cafe Collection (will show you my makes from there tomorrow), I bought some of this great Kokka fabric. It's a gorgeous Scandinavian style design with fun flowers and houses. I love the randomness of the design and is full of so many different images.

I really love the green house and the pink flower in the garden below.

The clouds and raindrops (well, that's what I think they are) work really well as a separate pattern too. The colours and geometric style are a great stand alone design.

The same can be said for these 3 little flowers. The attention to detail is like none I have seen before in a fabric of this type. I just love it. There's so much in there.

It's also rare for me to find a fabric that works as well for larger items as it does for smaller ones. It's great to see a spread of the design in a bigger piece... well as using some of the isolated details in a little item.

The colours work really well for me too...girlie enough without feeling too sugary sweet. All in all, I like this fabric. I like it alot. So I think I had better go back online and order more while they've still got some in...

Your fabric choices are wonderful. It's so cold here already, with no green leafy thing around anywhere I'm already into the bright color thing. Got a kick out of Fabric-Rehab, great name for a fabric store!
