  7. I love the white daisies on blue cotton spandex knit, or the Navy treetop fairisle deer heart fabric. Already made a T shirt with the red/green fairisle deer heart, the fabric is lovely to work with, in fact, already put the navy treetop knit in my stash. Happy Christmas from a happy customer.
