Like a child in a sweetshop!

We have been visiting family down on the south coast of England this weekend and I managed to sneak in a visit to the most amazing fabric shop, The Eternal Maker. I first discovered them at Ally Pally last month and have spent several hours drooling over their website since then. The shop was even better than I had hoped. Not only did it have a cafe where I could park Mr JK with his newspaper and a mug of coffee, but there was lots of yarn and more fabric than you could shake a stick at! I ended up buying some pink linen and floral bias binding to make an apron and a couple of skeins of yarn for Christmas gifts. I could very easily have spent a small fortune on other fabrics and when I next go to the shop, I will have a definite project in mind. Anyway, feast your eyes on this treasure trove of loveliness!

I did manage to knit on my travels and have almost finished a pair of socks. Photos soon, I promise! I need some good light, so it will probably have to wait until next weekend. Talking of which, I am super-excited as I have been invited to go to Festiwool on Saturday. It looks like it is going to be a lovely day, and I will tell you all about it on Sunday! Have a good week! xxx

Ooh! Your post definitely had me drooling! What a fantastic shop - and a cafe for husbands as well; it sounds idyllic. Have a great week. xx

I love Eternal Maker, it's my closest fabric shop! I read your post with a smile, as I headed up from the south coast to festiwool this weekend. The day was so inspirational, even my 8 year old came home asking to learn to knit.
