When I drove over to Sew and So's at Bungay last weekend to look at the Quilt Show, I couldn't drive all the way home empty handed, so I topped up my fabric boxes with some GORGEOUS Lecien fabrics - these aqua prints are from the Floral Collection Antique Rose 2016 collection - and these neutral background prints are by Lynette Anderson Designs. I spotted some Aurifil 80wt thread which is my favourite for hand applique,and as it was such a good price I bought 2 spools...
...Sew and So's always has a great selection of bag making hard wear, and as soon as I spied this green webbing shoulder bag strap that was quickly added to my haul, along with some swivel clips for self-made bag handles. I'm always looking out for bag making bits and bobs and saw these jumbo sized snap fasteners on the Empress Mills website. These ones are 25mm in diameter, and decided to get a few packets in the antiqued brass finish. These will be extremely useful as I plan to make a few more bags for gifts this year. These jumbo snap fasteners arrived really quickly in the post - excellent customer service from both of these independent retailers!
