The one where I went to Barcelona and came back with no fabric

Well, that’s it, end of post.
Yes, I really did go to Barcelona (end of year school trip, me and 22 students, so don’t envy me too much 😉 ) and I really did buy no fabrics. I went to the huge and trusted Ribes y Casals in Carrer Roger de Lluria and spent a happy hour perusing the many many fabrics on offer, but nothing really struck my fancy – and I guess noone will be surprised if I tell you that I really, REALLY didn’t need anything.

So there – shortest post ever! But keep your eyes peeled for my next post with all my fabric-y exploits from my recent trip to Ecuador. There will be lamas and all!

    After following the link I’ve realised I need to learn Spanish. Or at least a few words so I can attempt purchases at this store!! Not needing fabric is not usually a good enough excuse not to buy. Did you forget your purse?? That would be a better excuse! 😂

    I ALSO went to Barcelona this year, to three fabric shops, and couldn’t find anything I wanted badly enough to buy. I was shocked.

      Well, if amongst the both of us we couldn’t find anything worth wanting there must be something wrong with the choice there…
