There was obligatory glass-floor walking, and looking out to sea, a nice cuppa with a view, then shopping and Pizza Express.
|Apologies, my feet look filthy and just a little bit weird!|
I came away with a White Stuff skirt and a spotty Cath Kidston rain-mac in the sales, but didn't spend too much, as I was saving myself for the journey home.
A 2 minute detour took us right to The Eternal Maker. Fancy that!
So the crew remained in the car, whilst I literally made a beeline for the 3 fabrics I wanted, scrumdiddlyumptious Melody Miller, Ruby Star Spring, in the Springtime colourway and some, da da daaah Aurifil thread!
It was a good excuse to catch up with the lovely Anna, recovering slowing from the manic FoQ, and although I could have stayed for hours, the sad little faces in the car made this a mission and no time for browsing, just a birthday voucher and only a teensy bit more spent, honest.
Anyway I didn't drop working Wednesdays from September for nothing - I think I have just filled my calendar with 'things to do and places to go alone'!
The fabrics are destined for the Noodlehead 241 bag which I bought yesterday too - I am yet to decide if I'll use the big bee as the main panel - reaction from the family wasn't even mixed - but I love it!
