I love trade! While in NYC at Bubble I traded a Baby Bean dress for one of these Organic Lily Dresses by Monamici for Miette. She loves it and wore it all weekend. Monamici is one of my favorite children's clothing lines---Beautiful, simple and modern!!!

Indigo Fabrics

I discovered Indigo Fabrics at the Dallas Quilt Show yesterday. They are made in South Africa using designs from old English pattern books from the 19th Century and 20th Century American Mill Designs. The fabrics are stiff to the touch because in South Africa woman equate that to good quality. They do get very soft after you wash them. You can buy these fabrics from www.reproductionfabrics.com.
