Rainy break

Been away for a few days enjoying the rain in a different part of the country. It has its compensations does rain. Needed to find indoor things to do in Chichester...oooo...a rather fine fabric shop I've bought from online just happens to be in Chichester, The Eternal Maker, a chance to check out their stock in the flesh.
Awesome collection of fabrics for patchwork/quilting, dressmaking and upholstery - interesting ranges, lots of very desirable linens,  Japanese fabrics, Feedsacks, brights and  funky prints. Great selection of ribbons and trims, threads and buttons in every colour you could wish for. If you happen to be down West Sussex way, check them out or have a look at their shop online. I didn't mention the felt...big box of woolfelt offcuts, even bigger shelves of sheets. Nor did I mention the range of colours and sizes , including a truly JUMBO jumbo size, of ric rac braid...or the many colours and sizes of pom pom braid... Yum, yum, yum.
 I happen to have returned home with some bags.

 Felt scraps...


reversable dinosaur ribbon - a girl can never have too much reversable dinosaur ribbon


 oh, yes, and a few fabrics.


 Time for a serious stash sort as there are a number, a quite scary number, of projects in the pipeline that these fabrics are intended to fit into somewhere- not least the re-vamping of a rather dowdy linen jacket that desperately needs some of these lovely Japanese linen prints.


  1. Sounds a bit like heaven, that shop:)

  2. Ooh what lovely goodies you have returned with. There's nothing better than getting home and sorting through all the lovely things you've bought :) Love the dinosaur ribbon and the butterfly one. Thanks for sharing. Maggie xx

  3. All completely yummy and I know you'll put them to good use making gorgeous things! Am glad you enjoyed the rain in a different part of the country ! Still same all wet stuff falling out of the sky? xCathy
