scrappy delight lampshade

hello possum’s

I do love fabric….. and when I look at fabric, the brain ticks away with an idea thats been swirling around in my head and I know its just right for that quilt…. then sometimes I see fabric or in this case lots of fabric and go OH! I could use it for that project, bringing it into my already colourful home or studio…

Having found this idea months ago, on my night time addictive habit of Pinterest, I originally thought what a great idea to either showcase a wonderful range of fabric or use up all those scraps in the scrap bin and yes we all have those bins…

lampshade

now the base has been laying around, waiting patiently for the right shade to appear and become partners, so with the recent closet cleaning thats gone on around this home lately (I ashamedly admit hidden at the back of said closet) I remembered that beautiful idea I had seen… so I dashed off to the local op shop – no luck, worth a try, as sometimes you find the most amazing things in Op Shops like my antique tea cups… oops! stay focused girl… so I had to go to a lighting retailer and there I found the right shape I had always been after…
