It Is A Fabric Thing....

As mentioned I visited a lovely fabric shop, the Copperfield Centre on the Isle of Anglesey whilst on my little holiday, I took some little snapshots and thought you may like to see. I have to say is a proper, as I call it, fabric shop, with proper prices ;0) I do think once in a while is nice to splash out on pretty fabric don't you think.

There is also a pretty shop owned by the same Family a couple of doors away, and is really beautiful inside.

Lovely displays....

Pretty quilts....

Ohooo I had fun mooching in there, and then it was off to the fabric shop :0)

Ohooo what pretty colours, lets have another look shall we.

The fabric was up, down, and all around.

Pretty ribbon and gifts too.

Mucho fabrico....

Ohooo now there was a little here I had to play with....

Can you guess which one I came home with....

I really did have fun there, apologies but can't seem to find any links to the lovely fabric store, so if any of you know of any do let me know.

I suppose you would maybe like to see what I came home with. Well apologies, am probably going to disappoint with my ickle stash I bought, but the good news is I am going back for the sales in a couple of weeks and also hoping to mooch with a new and very lovely blogger friend, won't that be fun. Not fun for my little wallet I bet ;0)

Well I bought some bondaweb, but that isn't very interesting to look at is it so haven't photographed that, but I have photographed my little fabric stash. Two really pretty FQs of floral fabric, and one FQ of my favourite Kaffe Fassett fabric.


A very CK Provence Rose esque moda fabric, I bought half a metre. What do you think, does it have that Provence Rose esqe look to you.

Pretty ribbon, and two gorgeous Daisy buttons I am saving up for a special project.

And some Ohooo so cute and pretty buttons.

So a lovely little purchase I thought to keep my crafty fingers busy as a little bee. One thing I have been busy with is getting on with making my Kitchen Diner projects with the lovely and special fabric you sent me, I am doing 3 special projects and here is a sneaky peak as I was having a play.Thank you so much again lovelies.

I hope it makes you as warm in your heart as it does in mine, seeing your lovely fabric being made into something very, very special to me. I truly have been very blessed to find as lovely a folk as you :0)

  31. What a lovely shop and all your goodies. Your patchwork is great. I love all your colours etc. Can I ask you a question please. I've been cardmaking for years but have recently bought a little sewing machine and Paul's Auntie is going to teach me how to sew. My question is all your lovely hearts and cushions you make how much fabric would I need to buy to get started as I don't want to go too mad at first. Thanks for any advice. I just love reading your blog. I'm new to the blogging world and your blog was one of the first I found so thank for your inspiration. Jenny x
