I have managed to track down and buy some fabric of course - not even a holiday will stop me shopping for material. Although I should be honest and say that it is not difficult to track it down; most shops sell some kind of fabric and there are little sewing shops on nearly every corner.
I'm not terribly sure of the quality of it - some are definitely polycotton, and some are definitely cotton, but a lot of them I'm not too sure what they're made of. And many of them have quite a stiff dressing on them, so it's hard to tell exactly what they will be like until they're washed.
But I don't really care! I've used every sort of godawful anything in my quilts before now, and these ones have such pretty patterns, and bright colours. And they'll remind me of my south seas holiday... I seem to have accidentally bought about thirty yards. I see a tropical phase in my future.
