We began the week with a trip to Harrogate. In particular here.
Now I really really wanted to go here as I knew they stocked some fabric which I NEEDED. Oh my what a wonderful shop, absolutely stocked to the rafters on two floors with so much lovely, lovely fabric.
Michael Miller Dawn fairies fabric. I am going to try to make a dress for Miss F next year. But I also needed this fabric.
Which will be something for Ms J, maybe for Christmas if I get my skates on. Details of the shop here They do mail order but I wanted to see the fabric for myself before buying. It is good quality. And if that wasn’t enough opposite this shop was a wool shop and just up the street a sewing machine shop, and two tearooms, and street parking. Bliss!
And so to Saturday when we had to go to York, I didn’t have long here, but there was time to go the Viking Loom, a favourite sewing shop, where I picked up a couple of Christmas presents and some bits and bobs, as you do. But a bit of time to take some pictures to share.
One of the city gates, known as Bars in York.
And most apt for this week the site where
Guy Fawkes was born. For readers not in the UK, we celebrate Guy Fawkes day on 5 November,which was the day the Plot to blow up Parliament and the King was thwarted.
