Good news for me, not so good...

for my loyal Etsy-based fabric suppliers!  I have found the perfect fabric store, just 8 minutes from home.  Amazing.  The Cottage Quiltworks, at Bilgola Plateau, is exactly what you could hope for in a fabric store - local, chock full of fabric delights only glimpsed tantalisingly on the internet, staffed by real, friendly people, and open on a Saturday morning!  I was so mesmerised I spent $200 in there in one go (it wasn't hard, because I did buy two books at the same time as the odd scrap of fabric) - they have everything, from those fantastic Japanese linens I bought earlier this year, or last year, right through to ikat-style, japanese-type prints & of course the lovely amy, tanya, anna-maria, erin & jay.  I feel like Christmas has come very early, except that I'll be spending a lot more money, because of the huge savings I'll be making on postage.  That's my excuse, anyway!

On an interesting note, I bought this pattern & I'm going to attempt to make one of these for one of my colleagues, who has two phones with her at all times, one for the ex & one for her daughter.  I think they should invent a multi-SIM phone, myself.  That could solve a bunch of difficulties!

And these also arrived, which is very exciting, and I'm off now to make something lovely to put in the shop.
