Mermaid in the Brock Underpassthe workroom. Heather Ross’ new fabric line, ‘Mendocino’, features mermaids, octopi, sea horses and fish swimming across colourful oceans of fabric. Twenty eight bolts of this line will be arriving in the shop next week. Perhaps I went a little overboard, but these prints are too cute!

In order to lure the mythical readers of this blog to reveal themselves, I’m having my first contest! Up for grabs is a sweet stack of eight fat quarters of the Mendocino line. Eight fat quarters equals lots of mermaid fun for the winner.

Here are the details – leave a comment on this post between now and September 19th midnight with your name and tell me what your favourite mythical creature is and why. Don’t forget to include your email address (it doesn’t get published) so that I can contact you if you win. I’ll draw a name and announce the winner on September 22.

Good Luck!
