Whilst shopping in Madrid, we found the best fabric shop ever! Situated on Gran Via is the Julian Lopez shop, and I think that Beth and I could have spent about a week in there. They had the most amazing selection of fabrics and then a home section upstairs too! It was simply beautiful – a crafting heaven!


These were the window displays – so inviting! It was like being in a sweet shop!



I managed to restrain myself when it came to purchases, although I could have bought the whole shop! I settled for a metre of this pink fabric which I’ll use for a quilt that I’m planning to make:


And I also bought two metres of this lovely fabric – I think I might make a maxi skirt or possibly a dress out of it:


It will probably be some time before I start making a skirt – I’ve got the wedding waistcoats to finish first!
