A Wonderland of Fabric

Having lived in the Midlands for many years I kind of miss the availability and choice that I'm used to have on my regular trips to Birmingham.  So a recent trip to the city had me all of a flutter at the prospect of visiting my old fabric haunts.  The one pictured below is Barry's Fabric Market.  Their website is actually Leons Fabrics as this is their warehouse in Manchester.  I've not visited the Manchester outlet but can vouch for the fact that the Birmingham store will have you squealing with delight if you're a fabric buff.  If you can't find it here it doesn't exist!

My haul on that particular day was some red boucle, enough leopard print chiffon for a blouse (to go with the red boucle), some ultra bright pink jersey and £8 worth of mauve grey satin to make curtains for my craft room (more of that later).
