Speaking to the soul

"Mere colour, unspoiled by meaning, and unallied with definite form, can speak to the soul in a thousand different ways"

Oscar Wilde

This is some fabric I picked up at the Scrapstore at the weekend; the Scrapstore is a great community project where industry can have their oddments and leftovers recycled; for 5.oo, you are given a big black binliner and can wander around and fill it with all manner of things. They always have a good selection of containers which I find useful for all sorts of things, and I usually manage to get soem fabric and wool, etc too.
This little pile was a card of sample fabrics, and the way the colours were arranged was impossible to resist, so it came home with me! I've removed them from the card and paper backing, and think they'll be destined for a quilt of some description. It's tempting to just leave them in that pile to admire though LOL

I think I want to visit your country just to go to all the neat stores you have - charity shops, recycle stores etc. We don't seem to have anything like those -not where you can pick up stuff like a very of the ladies whose blogs I read find!!! Lovely colours of fabric!
