So you may have noticed my absence over the last weekend as I went on a little jaunt down to Susan's.  You can read all about it here because I forgot to take any photos whatsoever of the occasion, and Jack was overcome with the idea of all the screaming adults and children and hid in the bottom of my laptop bag (the laptop that didn't get used because we couldn't crack the ultra-secure password that Susan's DH has on their wifi!)

Anyway, on the Monday, children having been safely deposited at school, and no pressing need to hurry back up the road, Susan and I mounted an excursion to her LQS, The Bramble Patch in Weedon Bec (I do love the truly insane names that some of the UK towns and villages rejoice in ;o) ).  Despite what Susan may have suggested to the contrary, I did not contribute entirely to her next £200 on her loyalty card, not even half of it!  (Although between us we might just have put on half of it that day *ahem*)  I did some stocking up on some colours I am always woefully lacking in (the FQs), and also went halves with Susan on a couple of 'bargain' sale pieces of fabric (the larger pieces at the back):


My larger extravagance though, was the linen.  I do love this printed Japanese linen *sigh*



I think I'm seeing some bags in their future, but possibly one or two other home decor items besides, any suggestions?

  1. I think I need to see your (gorgeous) new purchases in person before I can make suggestions. Send the whole lot down to me and I'll send my suggestions by return of post...

  2. Ooo how lovely and how fab to go to a real shop too, online is great but to be able to drool directly over the fabric - wow, no suggestions just enjoy!

  3. I can't believe you didn't take pics and Jack was too scared to get his little bear bum out of your laptop bag! Looks like I'll have to watch myself if I ever go in a fabric shop with Susan!

  4. Ooh, those text prints, swoon. No wonder you cracked. Good to see you both supporting the EU with your fiscal activities!

  5. The whole lot in the last photo needs a closer inspection. I'll need to stroke each piece a minimum of 20 times each to get any ideas of what to do with them. Other than for the stroking part that is.

  13. Those linens were definitely looking for a home it would have been wrong to abandon them to another lonely night in store!

  15. I'm drooling over the linen....figuratively speaking! BTW I bought one of those fancy seam rippers!

  16. You know, those linens would look lovely in a quilt. Heck, they're lovely just sitting there! I'm thinking that any given bed needs at least 4 quilts - one for every season. Or whim. Great purchases!

  20. Nah! Don't make anything with them. Just keep them for stroking and purring over! Jxo
