Recently ...

Spotted this sign post near the Royal National Park.
Fabric and pattern at the Oppy, the orange and grey piece is gorgeous, photo not doing it justice. A skirt for me. The other is a gorgeous printed linen,
and a cute vintage pattern, for a basic pinni.
I love this cotton, has little purple flowers through out. Selvage says: Alan Roberts, Australia - does anyone know anything about Alan??

The sign is reference to us, in particular, is it. Or just everyone in general? Eeeppp!

I think Alan's fabric is very cool. It looks brand new. Don't know anything about his work but glad you found it.

Love the orange touches too. Orange is a fave

Is it Roberts or maybe Robison. If it's the later I've got a couple of pieces which are almost as lovely as yours.
