Things I don't like but everyone else seems to...#1 Liberty

Welcome to my new series "Things I don't like but everyone else seems to...".  As a nice person (I believe), I wasn't sure if I should write this series.  Then I realised I was taking it all far too seriously and as long as I remember Wheaton's Law (Don't be a Dick) I will be fine :)

SO - on to the series.  Note there will likely be few or no pictures in these posts - they are just me wittering.

Things I don't like but everyone else seems to #1 is a biggie.  It's liberty fabric.

I can hear the collective in-drawing of breath and shaking of heads.  It's obviously a failing in my taste as everyone else raves about it, but I just don't get it.  I like some of the prints (mostly if they are small scale and colours I am drawn to) but mostly they seem outdated or too busy or just too floral.  Classic liberty for me is just meh. I don't hate it, but I don't understand the serious love there is out there for it.

Phew!  That wasn't so bad!  Anyone else out there not digging the Liberty?


  1. I am with you - Liberty fabric is very "meh" and I would not be paying that kind of money for merely meh. Whilst I agree with this one, I am slightly nervous on what might be coming up next in this series!!!

  2. Gotta say I'm not a big fan of the prints... but I did once touch some because I had to work out why everyone raved about old fashioned fabric that sold for $50/mtr ... and it was so lovely and soft and smooth and drapey...

    ... pitty about the prints.
