Last weekend, had plenty of ups and downs. My daughter had an allergic reaction (to what, we're unsure) whilst we were staying up at my sister's house, and ended up in hospital. Needless to say, this was rather scary, and took up most of my time but before she fell ill I had managed to squeeze in a trip to a great little fabric shop.
It's a little shop that my mum and sister had told me about plenty of times, but this was my first visit. Unfortunately I don't remember the name of it, but it should be easy enough to find as it's one of the few businesses in the little village of Embsay. It stocks knitting, crochet, tapestry bits and bobs, and lots and lots of lovely fabric. I was especially taken with these gorgeous Michael Miller prints.
I'm in love the hedgehogs one, I'm thinking I may base my daughter's bedroom around this colour palette as I love how all the colours go together.
I remember seeing a child's quilt that had a retro circus pattern in the main sections (and maybe spots and stripes). Does this ring any bells with anyone? I feel like I saw it on somebody's blog but can't remember my way back to it, and would love to see if this hedgehog pattern would work in a similar way. If this makes sense to anyone, please let me know if you see the quilt I am lamely describing :)
These other fabrics will just come in handy somewhere too, I know. My mum and sister thought it was very amusing when I mentioned that I have a fabric stash, and even more so when I said I kind of kept it on the quiet from the hubster. Surely we all do it, don't we?
