[ i'm in heaven ]

IT WAS A gorgeous sunny day today so I thought I'd head into Dublin and see if I could source out any new fabric shops (up until now, I hadn't had much luck other than The Woolen Mill or Hickeys). And as I was walking through the winding little streets, I came upon Murphy Sheehy & Co., a rather tiny shop (but then I have found that some of the best places are in tiny jewel boxes). Well I think I may have died and gone to heaven. This little shop, family owned since 1940 was overflowing with such a great selection of drapery and interior fabrics as well as Irish wool and linen. There were bolts everywhere but that's what made it fun - digging through them to see what goodies I could find. I'm thrilled with the little bits of damask and wool tweed I brought home and can't wait to get sewing!

Isn't it great when you stumble upon a place like that. Have fun with your fabric supplies. :0)
