Yes I know its not Friday but I can't wait to feature some fabulous fabrics.
I first mustered the courage to cut a treasured pair of curtains of the 1945 painting by Gandma Moses called Sugaring Off last Christmas.
With sales and shameless begging from friends and family I find myself with very little left. But I've found a little and fallen in love all over again.

Sugaring off is one of the scenes that you just never tire off...there is so much to see. I love the Mum pouring the hot maple syrup onto the snow so it hardens to form sweets for the kids. I love the little copper pales hanging in the trees. I love the obvious teamwork and care being shown by the overalled farm workers.
I have another Grandma Moses original barkcloth fabric called Early Springtime.
The snow still looks pretty thick on the ground to me which just emphasises how hard these folk had to work. The same sense of community and love for nature oozes out of this fabric too. See the excited chap emerging from the cottage door with his sledge? The gaggle of geese in search of a thawed patch of ground? The revellers in the cart singing together?

It features snow capped mountains, chalet roofs....
