A Little....

...Retail therapy never hurt anyone..
Bank holidays mean car boot sales...I bought some printers blocks


Some fabulous vintage glass baubles... I managed to haggle and got them half price.


Earlier in the week I shopped in Standfast and Barrack's mill shop in Lancaster, going to make bags with this to sell at out next craft fair


Some more bag material from Immanuele's in Burnley... what a place!


and quilting fabric from The Sewing Centre Scarborough.. well worth a visit, this is for aprons and quilts. 

 

 couldn't resist this kitsch little deer.. he's destined for aprons too.



and finally a piece of Liberty linen... soon to be a jacket...for me.
