There is a large fabric shop near where I live but I tend not to go there as the prices are a lot higher than the small haberdashery in town. I was however driving past this shop yesterday so thought I'd pop in, they also have a charity shop up there so thought why not :o)
No surprise that the fabric was overpriced, the poly cotton was £9.99 a metre compared to the £2.99 I pay in town. They did however have the fabulous remnant bin, it was marked up as everything £1 a metre. So without any shame what so ever I went in with both hands pulling the fabric out. There was loads of boring white cotton but then I came across this beauty:

I bought a couple of other bits too but need to photo so will save these for a post tomorrow as today looks like its going to be a house-bound day with a teething monkey.
