Liberty fabrics are everywhere. Quilted on i-pad covers, on shirts and childrens' clothes. It all looks lovely displayed together.
Liberty stock all the Merchant and Mills sewing notions. I had intended buying some pins but strict daughter talked me out of it. Her argument was that I could probably get glass headed pins at John Lewis for a fraction of the price. I pleaded the attractive packaging but then we got talking about packaging in general and more specifically why she wanted to know didn't I concentrate on producing lovely packaging for Handmade Happiness products?
This makes me think about Paris and all the lovely unusual items you can find there which could be beautifully packaged - buttons and little velvet flowers and pretty beads... Oh yes!
Fenwicks next stop. Pictures of things there later this week. We shared an 'antipasta verdure' and then shared a beautiful gooey chocolate pudding. Put the world to rights then Cos where my lovely daughter kindly bought me a dress - a late birthday present; Pull and Bear, Uniqlo - did you know Cabbages and Roses and Greengate and Celia Birtwell have all done ranges for Uniqlo? So darn pretty. H&M home wear - it's only stocked by the Oxford Street store. I love their linen bedding and velvet cushions. Then Marks and Sparks for clothes for my mum and exhausted onto the 7.00pm train home.
