Show and tell week

Was it really Monday since I last posted?.....I can't believe it.  Thank you all for your well wishes for Toby's birthday - in his words he was 'chuffed'!

How has your week been?  It's been a busy but great week here.  Firstly there was Country Living on Wednesday - sorry, but I'm pretty extremely poor at remembering to take my camera with me, but I'm sure you'll enjoy the photo's of my purchases!  It was a lovely day and as we got in early, we managed to get round (the first time) without too much pushing and shoving.

I do like to do a quick scoot round first to see if there are any 'one-off's' to indulge in, I then go round again at a more leisurely pace!

Anyway, here are my purchases - it was great to see Sunflower Fabrics there as I managed to get some Liberty fabric (despite going to Liberty yesterday!).

Yesterday saw me back in London with a friend to have a browse round some shops, then the matinee performance of Mama Mia!  The show went so, so quickly.  It was really great and at the end of the performance, the cast sang a couple of numbers and everyone in the audience stood up and had a little 'dance' and clap to the music.

Earlier on in the day, we popped to Liberty as they had some quilts on display which I wanted to see.  I also wanted to have a touch and feel of all the lovely Liberty prints!  The fabric I bought was £10 a metre and I have seen it more expensive in Hobby Craft.  I guess it's like anything, you just have to pick and choose.

We then popped to Covent Garden as there's a bead shop my friend wanted to go in - that was good too.  I did have to resist.  Starting beading would be one step too far with all the other projects on the go!

Whilst in Covent Garden, it would have been rude not to pop to Cath Kidston, have a browse and purchase a hankie....

Off then for lunch at Pizza Express, then back to Piccadilly for the show.  So, all in all a good, but hectic week.

Right, I'm off to catch-up on all your lovely blogs. Have a good weekend and see you next week.

Hi Sarah,
Seems that you had a great time in London. I was really excited about the CL fair, but to my sadness Hubby is working this weekend so we had to just forget about it. :(
Love your goodies though, the fabrics are lovely!

I still haven't seen Mamma Mia at the theatre but everyone I speak to who has loves it.

Wow, sounds as though you really had a great time. Glad you enjoyed Mamma Mia. Were you still dancing when you came out the theatre?

I like the wooden drawers and I'm sure it's more convenient to have the pins at the top, but I now have the song 'needles and pins' going through my head, and can't help feeling I'd have to swop those two around!
