Ooops! How did that happen......again!

~
Somebody in my blogroll, I can't remember who unfortunately, gave a link to a fabulous site for fabric and put temptation in my way! Truly Scrumptious Fabrics run by Kate Wyatt is Scrumptious by name and scrumptious by nature. These two carefully wrapped packages arrived today within a few days of my ordering. Easter added maybe a day to the delivery.
~

The first pack is the Neutrals pack which has silks, linens, voiles and taffetas among other beautifully textured fabrics which have already got my imagination drooling! I think some of these are going to go straight into my Journal Quilt for May.

I am not sure that you will get the wonderful vibrancy of this Aquamarine pack which has a wonderful range of glorious blues, turquoises and greens in gorgeous textures that I just want to sit and stroke! I don't even know the name of some of the fabrics but they feel beautiful. Sizes of the fabric vary from fat quarter to smaller pieces.

I have tried to get the colour as close as I can to the actual colours in the photo above. The vibrant turquoise is similar to the fabric I used in my March JQ and I only had a tiny piece of it so I am delighted to have a fat quarter to play with again! (Are these taffettas?) * See Footnote
~
Each of these packs cost £12.50 (plus postage)/$18.63 and Kate has been very generous with the amount and variety of fabric she has supplied. Added to that, the fabric had all been very carefully pressed/ironed before despatch and looked immaculate on opening the parcels. I don't have any affiliation with Truly Scrumptious but can you tell I'm delighted? I wouldn't hesitate to buy from Kate again in the future. She obviously cares very much about the service she provides.

You are going to have fun with those fabrics, they are gorgeous and although the Aquamarine pack is stunning the neutrals look really exciting - sounds a funny adjective to use about neutrals!
