After hitting “publish” on my last “Alice” post, I thought well, there’s no time like the present to try to hunt down that stem fabric. So I immediately opened a search engine, typed in the fabric details (SO pleased I had a piece of selvedge with that information), and the first site to pop up with the answer was Peppermint Stitches. One phone call later and the purchase was made. I was overjoyed on four counts:
1) they had the fabric!
2) they’re Australian (like to support domestic stores whenever I can)
3) I’d had a very enjoyable visit to this shop a couple of years ago and can picture it clearly in my mind
4) THEY HAD THE FABRIC!
On Friday a parcel arrived at the door step
Now I can breathe easy knowing the perfect vine fabric is in the basket and soon it will be time to make the bias and start the appliqué.
