I never thought I would say this...but I don't know if I can cut this fabric!
It has been so busy at work lately, I have been rushing from meeting to meeting, when I am not in meetings, I am organising meetings...but the other day, in between meetings, I was halted in my rushing tracks! In the window of an indigenous art shop was this fabric...
So I had to make an on the spot decision... buy or keep on rushing? I knew it would not be there when I was eventually able to come back...so I bought it! Well I had too...it was pink!
The lady in shop very efficiently processed my payment, and put the fabric into a brown bag, and off I went to my next meeting...I only got teased a bit about the brown paper bag, something about mafia payments...
This gorgeous fabric is a cotton base cloth printed with a lino tile design, and hand painted flowers in acrylic pigment, by Helen Lanyinwanga of Babbarra Designs Maningrida, and of course it is a one off!
Maningrida is a small aboriginal community on the north coast of Australia...approximately 300-400 km east of Darwin.
So now I have it...can I cut it?
