Feed my addiction
I found this batik, which just sings to me, in a fabric shop which is not really local, but if my local shop (5 miles) hasn't got what I need then Leons may. (14 miles). The spots and the batik both were at Leons.
I don't know where I got the seahorses, but they go with the batik beautifully.
Bambers, (10 miles) which is really a sewing machine shop, where they are mega helpful and really care that you get the right machine, but have a fabric and haberdashery upstairs too. And we have a tiny little local shop which shuts at funny times, which also does some Quilting cottons, and are really helpful, but with limited range. But if I really want quilting stuff I need to go to Patchfinders, who also do delicious workshops. But they are 25-30 miles away.Or wait 'til I visit DD who has a fantastic place almost on her doorstep, which is hidden away in an industrial estate, and took us a lot of trawling around to find even when we knew it was there.
The richness of these sing to me.
I was in patchfinders and saw and fell in love with this
and now I need a project to go with them.
I have tried to gently persuade it back on, but I am not convinced it will run right again. It just looks birds nesty. Humph.
