A Trip To Manchester

The Cath Kidston Shop.
Kath Kidston gift bags
My sister has been raving about the Cath Kidston store in Manchester for ages now and as we were in Manchester last Friday it would have been rude not to pop in.  It really was beautiful and naturally I wanted everything …. however I showed restraint until I saw the gift bags (above) they put my purchases in …. and then I did squeal …. I have kept them in pristine condition … as I have a project in mind for them….

However my main reason for this post was say thank you to the lady in the materials department who was very patient with me when I asked for a few couple of swatches to make these badges with.

Wow, those gorgeous bags are just for putting purchases in?! Wow! (Can't wait to see what you'll do with them!)

More lovely badges - you know, you've solved one of my hardest Chrimbo pressies, for my daughter - I know she'll love a badge-maker, even if at 25 she's waaay too old for toys. Except for 'Hello Kitty' of course! So thank you, very very much lol!!!

luv, Mags x
