Oakshott indulgence!

Look what my sweetheart brought home tonight: Oakshott ColourBox

It was the absolutely perfect thing to bring home for opening after a seriously CRAPPY evening. I will spare you from the details...

Have you ever heard of these Oakshott fabrics?
Lynne from Lily's Quilts introduced them in some absolutely lovely creations she has made, be sure to check out her amazingly simple but absolutely lovely 12 trees quiltlt!!

Well, Oakshott fabrics are high quality fabrics with a little shine/colour shift in them due to the fact that the warp and weft in the fabrics consist of differently coloured threads.
I adore Kona solids, these are the UK luxury version :)

At the time of ordering in the Easter they offered FREE SHIPPING on orders above 35£ (not sure if it was worldwide) and I do not know if that offer is still on. Dare not go check it out, I may end up ordering more!!!

Anyway, I indulged in this ColourBox with their entire range of "solids", 100 different fat 8ths pieces. It was also on sale, reduced with 50 £ and I think it still is! Wooohoo, long time since I allowed myself to such luxury self-fabric-therapy.

And it arrived at the exact right time (fast shipping!!!), in an exclusively looking black box with red letters. The back of the photo left of the fabric box contains all the names or numbers of the fabric for easy reference and re-order. Uhmm yep!

Sadly, I do not have the time to dive into the pile of beauty right now, but soon... Soooooon, I promise myself :)

Hope you all enjoy the riches of RIGHT NOW. Have a wonderful day!
