Bless my hubby for putting up with me all day saturday as we literally, walked miles around Bath town centre looking for the Country Threads shop, but we found it!! He swiftly left me to it while I wandered around the huge selection of fabrics they have.

|Love this pink print and it was such a bargain|
As if this wasnt enough to satisfy my fabric cravings, imagine my complete delight when we stumbled across Cath Kidson! Now I've only ever lusted after her products online, so to be able to wander round a shop was complete heaven. I came away with her Sew! book that I've envied on many a blog.
I had a quick flick through back at the hotel and decided on this as my first project...
A large tote bag. I've been looking for a pattern for a tote for ages (although could probably work it out if pushed!) so this looks perfect. Not sure my sewing skills are up to the pockets involved but will give it my best!
It's such a long time since hubby and I spent any time together on our own since the girlies have come along, so aside from visiting two amazing fabric shops and being totally inspired, we enjoyed lovely meals, pub lunches and some really lovely sight seeing in what is really a beautiful city.
