Thank God for John Lewis

Thursday, July 5

Today, my junior brother and I went into John Lewis on Oxford Street, because I wanted to check out what they had. Thank God I did. They are currently having sales on some of their fabric.




















After settling Noah with my brother, and went off to explore the sale area.





Loads of quilting cottons on sale.
















This Joel Dewberry fabric from the Heirloom collection is currently going for £6.25/metre. I snagged 2 metres.





For those with nimble fingers, they also have yarn on sale.




Can you tell I was happy to be in John Lewis?




I came back and found this....in the middle of the knitting section.

    1. True dat. Though I suspect he passed because of over feeding. The child can eat.

    1. I never buy fabric from John lewis, unless its a designer one and it is on sale. Some of what they sell I always see elsewhere for a lot less.

    Very jealous of your shopping trip to John Lewis, and the gorgeous fabric you scored. Oh, if only there was a JL in Belfast!

  13. That is so cute! I can't believe how big Noah looks already! I must get myself to JL as well, I have vouchers to spend, although they are wedding vouchers and I'm not sure how happy the hubby will be if I spend them all on fabric! x
