Yes, we had just arrived home from holiday….when look what was on the mat….
Well we got back on the Friday and then the very next day (saturday), we had to take a ride to the Kings Road Cath Kidston, to check out the latest goodies, because I wanted this :-
….and this….I particularly wanted the light blue bag with the red roses, as I love those colours, it reminds me of the strawberry print, that was one of her first prints :-
….and look – how can you resist this on the back page – all this was enough to make us take a ride up to London on the very next saturday……
…..and this is what we came home with – a lovely cushion in this, my favourite print, the coffee pot and the teddy are our own to be added to the website shortly. (no longer in available!)
We managed to get, the toad stool pin cushion and the button and pin tins….we also got the extra large table cloth which works out so much cheaper buying the material this way, you get 2.5 metres for £35.00, which if bought by the metre works out to £50.00 (don’t tell cath I said that!)
I also bought some material from the bargain basket. (the pink rose fabric featured above) and I also managed to get the lovely Holdall featured above, from the catalogue, which I have used so many times, I love it…..This new collection, is fabulous, I absolutely adore it all, especially if you love sewing, the new cottage sewing box, which I didn’t buy and now regret is absolutely adorable, we picked up a butter dish very similar at the weekend, when we was ‘Booting’ (pictures as requested are coming soon!) and everytime I look at it, it reminds me of the sewing box….and wait until you see the new clogs!….oh its just all too much to resist!
I love the way Cath moves forward which each new collection, as that is what you have to do in retail to keep your customers interested, she is being faced with so many other retailers copying her, all the time that I feel this New season takes her into a new dimension – if you can – visit one of her shops soon, before it all sells out!!!!….fred and I are planning our next trip as we speak!
