Creative Space Thursday


I've had a couple of these fat quarters for a few months now and didn't really know what to do with them. After a successful browse in the local (ish! *) fabric shop in Leigh in Sea I was able to significantly improve my stash of sea blue fabrics. Don't you think they look like sticks of rock all lined up like that? ** Now, what to do with them all?!

Pop on over to {Kirsty's} place for more Creative Spaces!

* It takes a 20min walk to the station, followed by a 30 min bus ride and then a 10min walk to get to my local fabric store!! But it is as local as I have!

** For international readers, a stick of rock is a large candy stick you buy at the seaside, it generally has the name of the location written through it. It's very reminiscent of my childhood!! I'm not sure if it's a special UK thing?

I've never heard of a stick of rock so maybe it is a UK thing. They look fabulous whatever they look like.

You certainly are dedicated to travel by 2 different methods for an hour to get to the fabric shop! I suddenly feel spoiled only having to drive 5 minutes in the car.

Pretty fabrics - my fabric shop always puts them out on the checkout desk so you're tempted like a kid at the supermarket with all the sweets they kindly display right by the tills!
