Oh dear, I seem to have been awol! I have done stuff, Honest!
We had a weekend in London, as two of our children now live there. this trip included a trip to Goldhawk Road.
If any of you do not know about Goldhawk Road, and live remotely near West London, and make clothing- GO THERE! It is the home of a whole heap of fabric shops all in one place. We missed out about three or four of them, but still went into more than a dozen!
I wanted more pretty fabric for a few T-shirts. I have hunted for pretty T-shirting that is not babyish, and failed to find it locally. But in Goldhawk Road, I scored! Whoo-hoo!
Two rather William Morris-y prints, and a more amorphous print.

I am very happy with my buys!
There is another T-shirt fabric, in rich greens and purples... It will also happen in due course.
Jo, who plans a Siblings Together quilt, I believe.
The blocks all together look great!
And then there is a swap... That Tote bag swap.... I have it almost together now, Black and white and One colour!
A zippy pocket, and some slippy pockets,
Putting it together somehow those slip pockets in the lining decided to go in upside down...
Do you think it is a fashion that may catch on, given time?
and here is the bag all sewn together!I do hope my partner likes it! Do you think she will?
My Coastal swap quilt arrived! Am I happy? Yes, I am thrilled! Would you like a wee look see? Of course! This amazing batik fabric sce...
