My problem is this......I am very grateful for the comments I recieve , very grateful. It makes my day when i see that someone has taken the time to write, but i'm not sure it would be much of a giveaway if only a couple of you entered.
So please can you let me know if you would be interested. I'm thinking of giving one of my gadget cases that I sell in my 'not on the high street' shop,the link is on the side bar.
I was a blog lurker for quite a while until I decided to leave a comment, so go on, don't be shy, please let me know you're there!

Now I realise with all the copyright issues, I can't reproduce anything to sell, but for a 2 year old to put on his bed I didn't think that would be a problem.
So, I set to work. What fun I had!
Cutting, snipping, oohhing, ahhing I was in applique heaven. After about 3 hours, this is what I had produced.

When I left home at about 8.30 the weather didn't look too bad but I'd packet a waterproof jacket, just in case!
Well........what lovely weather we had...not! We encountered every kind of British weather going, wind, rain, sun, you name it, we had it. I had decided to wear a pair of lightweight trousers so that if we did have the odd shower they would dry quickly. Little did I know that after an hour they would look like I'd just taken them out of the washing machine and put them on!
The views certainly made up for it though as you can see.
The famous view below is of the lighthouse houses that are extremely close to the cliff edge these days!

However, on the way home things began to look up! Those of you who know Chichester will probably have heard of the most amazing shop, The Eternal Maker. My oh my, what a dream it was. My husband was happy to stay in the car and wait for me. I'm not sure he had any idea just how long it would be till I resurfaced. As I walked through the door I thought I had died and gone to fabric and button heaven. I really wanted to walk back out, jump up and down, scream and punch the air and then walk sedately back in. Instead, I kept going to the window to catch my husbands eye and kept giving him the thumbs up and grinning from ear to ear. Amazing what a room full of fabric can do to a woman!
This is what I bought. Not alot I know but I plan to go back once I have thought a little more of what I actually need. It will only take me an hour and 20 mins to get there too. Next time I'm taking someone with me who feels the way I do about fabric. I really wanted to take a photo of the inside of the shop but with all the excitement I forgot. They do have a website though and they do mail order.
The fabric will soon become bags, well parts of bags and I have plans for the lovely ribbon. They will all be in my 'Noths' shop next week with a bit of luck along with some other new items.
Tomorrow is going to be a sewing day if it all goes to plan and I will post some photos soon.
Enjoy the rest of the half term if, like me, you are lucky enough to be on holiday this week.
