I also hit Belle Fabrics (or as I will aways know it , Richardson's) where I topped up my fat quarter stash. they had smuggled in some lovely new summer fabrics together with the most fantastic Australian inspired patterns. Simply gorgeous! Rather embarrassing as I had to go back three times... the second time to pick up some fabric for Deborah's bunting that she wants to use for the the Royal wedding and which should tide her over to the Diamond jubilee! And then I realised that I need some double sided fusible interfacing for some applique I have planned.
Now, I am off to finish sorting out the lining for my Can Can bag which I am slip stitching in.
And all of this is just done in time for Wendy's Handmade Monday - I am constantly amazed by the ability of my fellow bloggers and the fabulous quality of their work. I also tried my hand at Kanzashi flowers, which Lisa posted up as a tutorial on her Dreamstar Diary
PS the bad news is that I also went to the Hand Weavers Gallery in Finsbury Park after my felting course... have you any idea what it feels like to stick your hands into a bag of Merino Tops - it is sublime! I have a further course on Thursday and will combine the two courses and report back at the end of the week. Jeanette Trim, I am holding you responsible for my new obsession.
