Day tripper...




My excursion to meet Kristina last week had to be abandoned because of problems on the train so was hastily rearranged for today.  We went to Tikki Patchwork in Kew.  Any excuse to peruse fabric!  It is a wonderful little shop, well worth a visit if fabric and all things quilty float your boat.





There is nothing I like more than seeing a spectrum of colour in any shape or form, so there was lots to please me here.  I was looking for a couple of specific colours for some future projects...



...some thread for hand-quilting Harry and Max's quilts...



...and some essential bits and bobs that I'd run out of.




We had both coffee and lunch - we took the train one stop further to Richmond and had a delicious baguette in Paul.  Over lunch we discussed a joint venture that we have planned.  Colours were picked over and a game plan agreed.  It's a hooky project...  All will be revealed soon...  ish!

  2. Oh I do love a good day trip... I used to live in Kew Gardens in London, and I am quite jealous. It looks like a lovely shop too. Have a nice day!

  5. I don't quilt, but these fabrics make me seriously consider taking it up as a new hobby! My daughter got a sewing machine for Xmas and now we are all about fabric. This cute shops runs rings around our local (Newbury) options.

    It's nice to see all of that PINK on this gray day; thanks.
