Its no secret that I love fabrics, especially a good printed one! Sometimes, however I feel like I need to move heaven and earth just to get the samples. For example, I have been waiting for 3 weeks or more to get a sample of this.
What I got was this.......
the piddliest little sample ever. How could my customer ever imagine 60m of this in her living room.
So you know what? It got the flick, just like that.! We are now using a fabric supplied by a company who are more generous with their samples!
I also ordered some fabric from ......wait for it...Lithuania!
It arrived 4 days later and was beautiful beyond my expectations.
I am not a horsey person, but this fabric for a client's sons bedroom is soo soft and even more stunning in person. A perfect linen with a navy blue print.
And just for a laugh to show you I have a sense of humour over all this, here's another fabric I ordered a sample of to show my client.
And ta da.......heres what I got.
I think its part of the tail but couldn't be sure, as its about the size of a playing card.
What I really really wanted was this.
But I searched to no avail. This picture comes from ABT, and is part of Anna's work.
That fabric is soooo beautiful that I just can't get it out of my mind.
So there it is - a tale of woe. On a good note, I will definately be using my super efficient supplier from donwtown Lithuania again!
