I try not to feed this addiction too much but yesterday I visited my local fabric shop of choice, the aladdin's cave of material. *swoon* I had to go to the shop as I've been asked to make another of my royal wedding tea cosies and required the fabric. I was very good though and before I went I did a quick inventory of my stash and earmarked the 'good bits' to become various things which I want to make. So while I was in the shop I made myself stick to the shopping list of royal wedding fabric, wadding, calico, wooden buttons and ribbons for my projects. I was most impressed with myself when I got to the til and realised I only bought one thing that wasn't on my list!! (this is probably beacause I didn't let myself even look at anything else in the shop!) This is it:
|Medium sized cupcake print - perfect for a new product idea I've had!|
The photos are a bit rubbish on account of it being so bloomin' dark today!
|Shoes and handbags on blue background|
|Kitchen equipment - retro and modern at the same time|
|Lime green birides on grey background - scrummy!|
|Teeny tiny ballet shoes in vibrant pink|
|Ballerina fairies - I wish this was wallpaper for my office!|
I did feed my addiction but managed to do it in a controlled manner, so go me!
