Sometimes life gets in the way of, well, enjoying life ironically, and as our good friend Ferris Bueller noted, "life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it". Sometimes we literally don't stop often enough to just smell the roses. This week sees the start of Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, and what better reminder to stop and enjoy the beauty in nature and appreciate the every day things that make this life a joy!
We have noticed that people that love to craft often love to bake. And people that love to bake, love to garden. And people that love to garden value the fine fragrance and formations of all things floral, whether manicured or wild. With this in mind, we've pulled together some of our free spirited floral themed fabrics, which are so good you can almost smell them.
From left to right: The beautiful Sommer, Tulip Tangled by Sarah Jane - because colourful tulips might just be the happiest flower in existence. And the only thing happier than a jug of tulips is a field of vignette tulips with cheeky rabbits peeking up over the blooms!
One of our favourites for it's pureness and simplicity, an absolute classic: Park Life, Flower field Coral by Cloud 9 in organic cotton.
Brand new and reminiscent of something vintage, this burst of sunshine happiness has a generous scattering of coral, aqua and lilac blooms that we have fallen head over heals for: Granny's Garden by Sevenberry.
Cottage chic at it's finest: Retro Flower, Gold by Sevenberry.
Sprigs and blooms aplenty in this fresh and bold repeat: Vintage Market by Tasha Noel.
Satisfying in it's geometric floral repetition: Slipper Roses, Rosebud Trellis by Tanya Whelan.
Another reliable key piece: Cottage chic in blue: Cottage Flower by Sevenberry, blue.
And in pink for anyone that can't make up their mind: Cottage Flower by Sevenberry, pink.
Happiness personified: Autumn Tree, Celia Slate Blue by Tilda.
And for anyone attending the actual Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, we've got just what you need for the free-flying butterfly dome! Butterflies in white by Summer Loft.
