Days away

My husband and I have just returned from a couple of days away in Hampshire. We stayed in a hotel in Lymington in the New Forest. The weather wasn't too kind to us so no decent photos i'm afraid. We had planned to take a trip to the Isle Of Wight but as neither of us had remembered to pack a wet weather coat we decided against it.
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.

  1. Hi Rosie! Thank you so much for your encouraging comments about my website. It was really kind of you to take the time to look at it for me! What a lovely day out you had. I've looked at TEM website but didn't realise that they had a shop. Lots of love, Amanda xxx
