Thank you all so much for your kind words.
Susan, I'm not sure how to get hold of you, but would love to take you up on your VERY kind offer. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment below. And thanks to Karin too. I will try Stone Fabrics next time I stay with Mum. It is a little further to go but know they have a great selection to help loosen the purse strings!
Isn't everyone lovely in the land of Blog?
Purple coat still underway!
