Gorgeous Christmas Fabric

I love the brightly-coloured Christmas motifs on this Christmas-themed fabric. I bought it from a shop called Candleberry Country in a small town called Yarragon, about an hour from Melbourne, Australia.

Candleberry Country is a wonderful shop - it is filled with fabrics, sewing patterns and supplies, patchwork quilts, handmade items, and much more. It is well worth a visit, or you can order online too from the Candleberry Country website

I'm not yet sure what I'll use the fabric for. I might cut it up and use individual motifs to make Christmas cards. I haven't yet used fabric for card making, so it would be good to experiment. I bought a fat quarter of the fabric for A$6 - a little more than I would normally pay but I was in the mood to treat myself!

Does anyone have any other ideas for using this fabric?

Yarragon is a wonderful place to visit if you like arts and crafts. You can read more about our visit on my other blog, Moving to Australia on a 457 visa.

I'm Back!

Sorry for the long absence from posting on this blog. I've just moved from Sydney to a small town in Victoria and so have had little time for blogging recently. In fact, I didn't have Internet access for over three weeks and so didn't even have the chance to catch up with all your blogs during that time. A big thank you to those of you who have continued to visit Crafts on a Budget and drop Entrecards in my absence. Your support is very much appreciated.

Now that things are slowly getting back to normal, I'll hopefully get back to posting on a more regular basis. I've also started writing 'Moving to Australia on a 457 Visa', a new blog about my new life in small town Australia, moving to Australia, settling here, and living and working in Australia.

I'm also planning to hold another giveaway in the near future, so watch this space...
