I didn't mean it...

So I just happened to drive down to Yankalilla today.

And I just happened to say 'Oh my gosh, what a coincidence, that's the shop with the really nice fabric' as I drove by. So of course I had to stop. And look what mugged me as soon as I got through the door. I couldn't leave without it.... Oh dear.

And now with no room for more fabric, this Mexican oilcloth, perfect for aprons and art smocks, is destined to be made up pretty soon into something delicious!

If you are in SA and heading down the Fleurieu peninsula, stop in and say hi to Jodie. She's lovely, I've been chatting to her online for a couple of years now.

Jodie also has an extensively stocked online store Nappies Covered. She sells nappy making supplies, PUL (plastic coated fabric), microfleece, suedecloth, hemp, bamboo, hook and look and elastics. I also get some of my size labels through Jodie. Her postage is very reasonable and her customer service is outstanding!

I still haven't been to Jodies new store. She used to live near me and would drop in my goodies and have a cuppa tea.

Umm I see I NEED to visit the big smoke soon :)

Love the black and white print!

I thought you couldn't fit any more fabric in your stash cupboard - or does this stay on a roll to prevent wrinkles????

Jee-winkers- no more room! Hmmm, if only there be a proper receptacle for a sheila to stash her goodies in. Or- how 'bout a SheShed- a GalGarage- a FemFortress of freakin' fabric? Just a thought

Hi there Miss Gilly - I hope your journey back to SA isn't too taxing! Make sure to take lots of breaks and drink lots of water and I hope you can squeeze in just a bit more shopping!

It was great to meet you yesterday :)

Hey Miss Gilly,
Lovely to meet you at the Blogmeet. I finally took the big plunge and published my first post last night, and to my utter amazement, I have a comment already (aah, no longer a virgin blogspot!!) Your new fabrics are lovely - understandable that the stash cupboard might just have to suck it up and bulge for a while :o)
Toodles,
Sonya
