Oh! Oh! Guess who went SHOPPING!

My daughters heard that there is a veritable Aladdin's Cave at Craftswoman Fabrics in Carrickfergus, and so off we went.  Talk about kids in a sweetie shop - we didn't know where to start!

Well, their mother of course headed for the Sale Rail!  And I'm sure we spent an hour and half debating and choosing .....

So here are a selection of their fabrics we brought home...

 Kerry hopes to make a short skirt with this amazing fabric ...

Elaine is scheming a  floaty top ....

With this creamy fabric....

And Shona is going to layer two fabrics to make herself a lacy top.

And did I manage to keep my hands in my pockets and resist temptation?.... OF COURSE NOT!  This fabric just smiled at me....... and all those ribbons came in a £3 sort of Lucky Bag.

Anyway girls and I had great fun...

So watch this space, because they tell me, if I'm very good, they might even do guest posts here about their creations!  


  1. That pink is lovely. I'm looking forward to seeing all the results. :)

  2. What a lovely day out - cant wait to see the finished items x

  3. Thank you both... it was indeed a most satisfying day out. :-) I feel very fortunate that my daughters seem to enjoy all this as much as I do.


Thank you for visiting my blog. I'd love to hear what you think so please do leave a comment - or even just a smile.... :-)
