MMJ Day 5: Liberty induced fever

Sunday, June 5






Today the boys and I went to Regent Street for a Spanish event called A Taste of Spain. We went there primarily to have a feel of what it would be like when we go to Majorca in August. I wore the  New Look 6025 top

Regent street is the home of Liberty, who are famous for their cotton lawn fabric. So naturally I popped into Liberty to check it out, and promptly came out with fever (more about that later). But first, 



Me and junior Mr.Dibs

Mr.Dibs and I

When I was reading about the event, they mentioned on their website that there will be freshly cooked paella, so I did not eat any breakfast today, keeping my hunger in check, to unleash it on the paella. Unfortunately for me, when we got there, they had only just started cooking it, and at that point, the music coming from my stomach could be heard all the way in Manchester...seriously, I kid you not. I was starving.
Giant paella pot!!


Close up look of the prawns...and boy were they large!!


Me before I realised  the paella would not be ready for another hour at least. I could not summon a smile after that, so needless to say, no picture of my disappointed face!


We walked further up, in search of a Spanish bar for food, and found this salsa couple dancing!
In the end we ended up in Nandos, and my smile miraculously reappeared. Funny that eh!

I left Mr and junior Mr.Dibs in Nandos and made my way to Liberty. It is such a lovely looking store. If you do ever find yourself in London, I recommend going there to look around, even if you are not buying anything.

I met a lovely shop assistant, who told me I could take pictures, and she offered to take the pictures for me. Wasn't that sweet of her? I asked her what it felt like, working in the fabric section, and she said she has to pinch herself everyday not to buy fabric.

I can't imagine myself working there. I would kill myself with joy first if I ever got  a job there, and if by some chance I did not succeed in killing myself, my husband will divorce me, because I will spend all my money there.



Standing near the Liberty classics. These cost £19.95/metre

I developed a fever, just looking at the beautiful Tana lawns on offer, and knowing I was not going to get any. I looked in my handbag for emergency painkillers, but realised I had changed bags that morning so I did not have any with me. 

In the end, to cure my fever,I bought a few sewing machine needles, for jeans, leather, and knits, bias bindings, elastic tape insertion guide, and water soluble pens for markings. I did not buy any fabric, not because I could control myself, but because I can't justify paying £19.95 for a metre of fabric. no matter how beautiful that fabric is....That helped my fever, and I am once again feeling fine.

Its the start of another week, and I only have outfits to last me till sunday. So I really have to sew alot this week, against the following week. How many days do we have left till the end of June? 

have a nice week

  1. How lovely to see your family and all those fabulous photos of Regents Street. Dibs, I never thought I'd see the day, but are you learning ... I mean, um ... have you just displayed ... RESTRAINT?! Yeah, I've never been able to justify paying those prices either, even though the fabric is clearly beautiful.

  2. Lovely pictures of you and the men in your life Dibs! The only time I've been able to justify Liberty fabric prices was when I spent my birthday vouchers there on fabric. That was a happy day! x

  3. I LOVE going to Liberty. I can spend ages fondling all the fabrics. Maybe we can take a side trip there next weekend? Hmm...

    And no joke, I've applied to two positions there with little success. If I ever make it in...it's on like Donkey Kong. Just saying :)

  4. Ah Liberty! Swoon! But I have never bought fabric directly from them - it's so much cheaper elsewhere.
    Hello to Mr Dibs, Great and Small - very wise to leave them in Nandos! ;)

  5. I'm sure its lovely stuff but I have never seen any print on line that was pretty enough for THAT price. I still like to think of sewing as a frugal hobby lol
