I use to travel. My friend and I would pack up our bikes and dog. Drive three days into Mexico, until we reached the sleepy little fishing village of Troncones (which is not so sleepy anymore).
I loved the mercados and would search for the perfect things to take home. Oilcloth that was not the standard prints you would find in the states was one of the obsessions. I loved the vibrant purples and oranges.
I have some other fabrics I will share another day. So wish I was the crazy fabric addicted person then, that I am now. I’m sure I’d have some beauties added to the stash.
What made me think of the oilcloth is Anna Maria Horner’s newest line. Has anyone felt Anna Maria Horner’s new oilcloth? It’s like butter. My friend constructed Amy Butler’s Sunhat (Blue Sky) pattern in it the other day. Very appropriate for Seattle. No one carries an umbrella here.
