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
And guess what? I've still got some birthday money to spend!!!!
But in case you were worried that all books and no fabric would make Dot a dull girl - have a look over here!
