We got Madrona Road by Violet Craft in the shop a couple of weeks ago and have just not had the time to give the collection the attention that it deserves. Today that changes!
One of the prints has text written all over it and when you start reading it, you find it’s a story about a little gypsy girl growing up and searching for a home. While working up a post about the collection, I saw where Violet had written the story out on her blog and I just had to share some of it with you as well. To read the full story, make sure you click over to her blog.
“And so it was to be that the family settled in a little house with a big life on Madrona Road. Follow the smell of hops and barely on the wind, turn left at the donkey by the mailbox and when you see Mrs. Catterson next to the Tulips, you’re home. But heed caution, for goats indeed stand guard, fabric flows deeply, the tap never dries and there’s always room for a good friend. Good night my little ducklings, all in a row. Sweet Dreams.”
Reading the story makes me love this fabric even more. It makes me laugh too because mom would give just about anything to live on a farm with a farmer and a donkey. I could totally see her living in that one print with the donkey waiting by the mailbox!
This is such a great collection and the prints would work well for clothes or a quilt.
