I ducked over to Patchwork on Central today while Nan and PA entertained the girls for a couple of hours. I had a well prepared list so I knew what colours I was looking for and how much, otherwise it is far too easy to lose control with all that loveliness around. I do like the brightness and space of Amitie, but from me in the Eastern suburbs, PoC is that much closer than having to completely cross town.

The damage wasn't too bad - material for a winter dress each for the girls and enough fabric for legs and dresses for at least 9 dolls with scraps over. I would love to shop for a quilt though, matching the fabrics in advance - gosh I can see how it would be addictive. Luckily my first foray into quilting is working with the girls old clothes, so it's a slow process as I wait for them to grow out of things. Only four more rows across and one along the width, on each of them!

POC is right down the road and so handy or evil depending on how you look at it. A great selection of goodies indeed.

These are beautiful fabrics.

Caleb got his letter from Ella today and he likes his snowman picture very much. Thankyou!

next time you're heading over to POC drop me a line and we can meet next door for a coffee!

I've never actually bought anything at Amitie even though I've been there many times. It should be heaven but just hasn't grabbed me. I need to go when I've got time on my side and can just wander around and change my mind a few thousand times. I do however love POC and the cute english look to the shop, right down to cramming in the stock, BUT, after a good 6 years of buying every couple of months or maybe more they couldn't tell me from Adam. So many local traders get to know their customers and I feel like a walking talking credit card in there. I really miss Calico and Chintz in Auburn Road, such a beautiful store and lovely girls. So sad they closed down. :(

Love your fabrics and can't wait to see what you make.
