cabbages & roses fabric & book giveaway



Do you have a clothesline? This breezy image courtesy of Cabbages & Roses sure makes me want one. Ever since learning about Cabbages & Roses on Fifi's blog, I have been swooning over their catalogs, blogging about them, even indulging in a small purchase. Recently I won C&R fabric from Laura at 52Flea and am happy that I can pay-it-forward by hosting a similar contest.



The giveaway celebrates the launch of Cabbages & Roses new line for Moda Fabrics. This is the first time that C&R fabric is available in the U.S.! The new line is called Northcote Range and is a beautiful vintage-inspired collection of florals, stripes and motifs. Here's what you could win ...



1 yard of this floral print


1 yard of this solid print


C&R founder Christina Strutt's beautiful book At Home with Country

Elyse- This is REALLY funny- It is odd how things in blogland just happen. TODAY on the WAY HOME from work- I started thinking about the fabric I won in your giveaway...and I thought- as soon as my hours are switched (end of October) that is the first thing I am going to work on!!! I was dreaming of a tote...or a pillow...and then I pop here and see your giveaway. DON'T sign me up but I did want to tell you that-it is just such a coincidence! xo Diana
