Happy birthday to meeee!

Not long after Dot's birthday it was my turn - although I didn't get a trip round Hay for my birthday treat!


I DID get lots of gorgeous presents though - partly because Mr Locket let me choose what I wanted so I stocked up on some new sewing books (obviously)


and had a very excitable spending spree in the Cath Kidston outlet shop in Bicester near Oxford on the last day of our holiday.

Because it was an outlet shop the fabric was reduced to £12 a metre and I was able to buy half metre selections 

and I increased my choice by buying some tea towels and napkins as well as some odd scraps that they were selling off cheaply.

But to make things even more fabulous my lovely Mummy and Daddy gave me 3 metres of CK fabric that they had chosen for me in Edinburgh!  


So now I have enough to make all the lovely patchwork cushions and curtain borders that I had planned and also some bags!  Fab!

I also bought some lovely fabric in a gorgeous shop in Cirencester that I will tell you all about in a later post.


And then there were all the wonderful presents from my friends


as well as this gorgeous Janet Clare mini-quilt from the lovely Trashy!  :o)


And guess what?  I've still got some birthday money to spend!!!!

p.s. I tried to post a comment on Dottie's new blog, but it seems to have vanished...perhaps she is vetting comments? I promise to mind my language :)

Many happy returns Lucy! Now if I'd have known there was a Cath Kidston outlet shop in Bicester my credit card would have been in serious trouble when I was in the UK...

Great fabric choices!

Happy Birthday Locket!!! I put you a little something in the post today......better late than never, eh?!

That fabric is yummy and the books look fab. You need to send me a book review on the Wee Wonderfuls one and I ordered the bag making one last night after spotting it on Amazon!

Can't wait to see what you make with all that wonderful CK fabric. Feel slightly sick now as we came through Bicester on the way back from Norfolk and I had no idea there was a CK outlet there.

Gorgeous quilt from Trashy too. A lovely addition to your quilt wall :o)
