quincylampshades

I’m a bit sad. One of my most gorgeous fabrics has gone out of print and I can’t get any more. I have just enough to make one last 45cm standard lampshade, like the one below.  I love this Alexander Henry fabric – it whispers ‘Quincy’ to me. It seems to encapsulate what I’m about – bold, fresh and beautiful. The ornate Japanese Odoriko dancers hold court, floating on a sky blue background, whilst cherry blossom swirls at their feet and golden flowers frame their elegance. If you want it, shout now. Or forever hold your peace.

I’m always looking at fabric: scrolling and clicking away until, hey! I love this! It’s a Japanese fabric called Wonderforest and it’s certainly that. A forest of monkeys, owls, lions, frogs, cats and snails among toadstools, trees, stars and rainbows. All on white, wavey, red and pink polka dot patches. A little one’s delight. And because of the design this can go either way – a pendant or a shade for a base. You can buy it, if you like, from Stylistic Gallery or I Love Crafty!

Surely not? But this is super nice. Black background, littered with gold petals. Serene salmon pink and dark red Japanese Odoriko dancers float among petite cherry blossom. Divine.
