I need help!

I have a problem. Remember way back in January when I said that I wanted more funky fabric to counter the floral that was taking over my range, well you see, I can't seem to stop buying florals like this;

and this;

Don't get me wrong, I love them but I can't find any funky fabric that I like or jumps out at me and makes me want to buy it. When I am at shows, people comment on how they love my work because of the different prints that I use. Now they will all say 'Wow, there goes boring Nic!' I think I have lost my funky fabric mojo and I would like it back please!!

I have made non-floral things recently like a special order for some ultra-special Knitting Goddess bags for The Knitting Goddess herself (available exclusively from her shop when more fabric arrives!)

I really loved making them which tells me that I need to get my funk on but urgh. We went to London at the weekend. My mission; to find funky fabric. No floral or pink purchases allowed. We went to Libertys. All I wanted were flowers so we left with nothing. More fabric shops, nothing inspired me so we left empty-handed. I've just been browsing the amazing KitschyCoo fabric destash sale (seriously, that woman has more of a fabric problem than me!!!)

Someone help me. I want need links to amazing fabric that I have to make bags and needle rolls from. Please! Save me from the florals!!

Well, I know you know where to look :) Looking at my stash on balance, I don't have that many flower-based ones although flowers turn up on other prints (especially bird prints). Go on, get something different!
