In we go. Where do you look first?!
All of the walls are lined with fabby shelf upon shelf of lovely fabrics. There was Kaffe Fassett, Amy Butler, Heather Bailey, gorgeous linens from Japan and my favourite, '30's reproduction prints. (And much more!)
You can see that stunning, inspirational quilts were hanging from the walls. We loved this Kaffe Fassett one.
Yep, there's more!
The lovely '30's prints...
Lots of books to guide and inspire you...
Fat quarter and jelly roll packs to set you off on the quilting path...
Another lovely quilt made from the 1930's reproduction fabrics sat in the window.
As if that wasn't drool worthy enough, there was another, different one, on the wall.
Once we managed to drag ourselves away from Tikki Patchwork, we headed over to Kew Gardens which was just a stone's throw away.
Wouldn't mind this pad!
It was very hot and humid in the infamous Palm House.
The highlight for us, though, was the Waterlily House.
The Munchkin was most in love with this furry specimen.
We had a great day, got stuck in the cafe at one point whilst there was a gigantic storm, and arrived home with our purchases, tired but happy. Today, we decided we needed a chill-out day at home after the heady excitement of the last few days. The Munchkin's nanny has just had a big operation so we decided to make her something to give her when we next visit. He drew out a butterfly on paper as a pattern then proceeded with the felt, buttons and embroidery silks to make her something we hope she will treasure. He is very chuffed to have mastered blanket stitch!
I, of course, am blogging and my sister is getting on with her tapestry.
Have a great weekend, everyone. So far, the weather forecast for Sunday is good: car boot sale here we come!
