makes a change

My local fabric shop is disappointing.
The staff are rude, the choice is poor and the prices are much higher than online shops.
BUT ... it is very near the Post Office. And we all know how often I go to the Post Office!

So imagine my surprise when I bought these reasonably priced, gorgeous fabrics from an almost friendly shop assistant (almost friendly means no smile, answering the phone half way through serving me and folding my lovely bundles really badly!)

All that is irrelevant though because I got Corduroy.
And polka dots.

Cute! You can't beat polka dot!
I know exactly how you feel - my local fabric shop probably has the best selection in the city but the staff are just so horrid they ruin the whole experience and put a complete downer on my day - so I buy online instead. Which is sad because there's nothing like walking home with a nice fat bundle of fabric!

They don't sound the most pleasent people in the world, but I hope you have fun with the fabrics. Especially the Corduroy, looking forward to seeing your creations.
