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.
