Jack Frost had been out and about on Monday and it was just on freezing when we set off for Whitby but as we drove over the moors the sun shone and it was a lot warmer, still not warm enough for sunbathing or donkey rides!!
It was nice walking round in the sunshine and it was so quiet with only a few tourists browsing round the shops
I always head straight to "Judith's" on Brunswick Street as she stocks so many lovely fabrics and buttons, I picked these 3 pinky fat quarters, some lovely buttons, interfacing, wadding and some calico, I'm going to attempt to make a doll!!
There's a new shop on Flowergate opened called "Isabel May" (used to Bespoke Country)
and it was filled with lovely pieces of furniture, bunting, candes and cushions etc I could have brought the shop home, I got a few things for birthday presents and these lovely coasters to put your cuppa on.
Across the bridge in the bookshop I got some cards and giftwrap, it's a sheet of ladybird book covers,
and a bit further up was an indoor market with the best sewing shop I've ever seen, the fabrics were absolutely gorgeous,
feast your eyes on this little lot!!
As soon as I saw this fat quarter I thought I could make myself a new pinny out of it, it just needs the edges sewing and a metre of ribbon for along the top and ties and it's done.
"Hello madam, can I help you"
The shop keeper told me the cat comes in and sleeps the day away on her counter and then she slinks off home, I think she's a secret seamstress who eyes up all the lovely fabrics and wonders how she can get a bolt under her arm!!
It was nearly dark as our weary feet wandered back to the car and as I've rambled on far too much I'll show you my presents next time,
Love Lucey x
