Colour in Chichester

Avoca colour in the window of the shop Gorgeous
A blue house against a blue sky
In the window of the Colne Galery
 How great to see the sunshine yesterday!

I got to Chichester late having called on a friend en route and the cafe I wanted to have a cup of tea in had closed but it was good to walk around and window shop.
I actually bought something in Gorgeous - pictured top. My friend Tara gave me a mug and jug covered in buttons by Avoca last Christmas and I saw a breakfast bowl to match. One of those bowls that the French like to drink coffee out of. That shop at the top of North Street is packed with colourful coats and jackets - lots at sale prices. Tricot Too used to stock Avoca, a brilliant Irish company. I do like their things.
I also bought some flowery tissue paper at Paperchase for wrapping purchases in Handmade Happiness.

Just to let you know there is now only one place left at Pam Dew's Hand Applique workshop tomorrow so if you want to join us ring me at work today 01730 267711.
