{a trip to pretty fabrics and trims}

yesterday i decided i needed a little treat, so i took myself off and went and visited the most cutest fabric shop! i drove for quite a while and only got lost a few times :) but finally i arrived at pretty fabrics and trims!

and let me tell you, this shop is adorable! and sarah and her mum are just soo lovely! and sarah was nice enough to let me take some pictures :) when you first walk in you're just greeted with the best sight- all the fabric!! it's wonderful and even more so because i haven't been fabric shopping since i came to derby! look at that rainbow, perfect!

most of the fabrics are colour co-ordinated! which makes it soo good to go to the exact colour you need and find just the 'right' fabric for your project or just because! 

look at all the colourful thread, they have every colour that you could ever need, i had to be good and stay away from them!

if you know me, you know i like (love) pink! so this was one of my favourite shelves, all the pink! 

see? so cute! there are lots of quilts dotted around the shop, and just look at that vintage picnic quilt *gasp* so pretty! it is such a lovely place full of fabric and quilt-y goodness, i think i will definetly be making another trip up (down?) there again :)

and of course i couldn't leave without a little treat! i seemed to be in a floral-y, vintage-y mood! that red floral on the bottom has been on my wish-list for quite a while! and i just decided to pick fabrics that i liked with no real plan, and i don't think these necessarily 'go' but i kinda like them altogether, i especially love the brown, it's soo hard to fond good browns these days! 

it was a really nice day out, and i really enjoyed my little fabric treat to myself! so if you're ever in the area, you must put it on your 'to visit' list!
