Today I went to one of my favourite shops down here on the coast. It is the local haberdashers and is called Mar del Plata, or Sea of Silver, and is located in Torre del Mar, (Calle San Martín, 7 - 8, Torre del Mar, 29740, Velez-Malaga, Malaga). It really is an Aladdins Cave of gorgeous things for anyone interested in sewing and needlework crafts. They specialise in quilting fabrics and have a wonderful selection, they even offer patchwork quilt making classes which one day I will attend.....but one thing is sure, I know that if I go there for something, you can guarantee I will come out with several things, particularly quarters of fabric. You can actually buy as little as a 10cm length from the bolts, but I generally buy a quarter metre, I find it more useful than a fat quarter to be honest. So today was no exception, I bought some Christmas and other fabric, as well as ribbons and Christmas themed novelty buttons....and was given one packet as a gift....I guess they want to keep me visiting, after all I tend to help the Spanish economy every time I do! ;)
But that is not what I wanted to tell you about, what I really wanted to share was their window display! As soon as I saw it from a distance when walking to the shop, so my steps increased to an 'almost trot' leaving my dear hubby straggling behind....well I guess he wasn't in any hurry to see what I could see! And here it is:
(The photos aren't great as they're taken on my iphone with the window reflections, but I've tried to enhance them to help show this lovely display!)
Apparently these are made by one of their customers and form just a small part of her whole collection.....sound familiar!!! And she makes them all herself. I think she must use kits because there is a kit called Tilda Seaside Girl shown in the last photo above. I think the doll may be called Tilda! I recognise a lot of the fabric in the outfits though, as I'm very familiar with the fabric they sell ;)
Well I do so hope you've enjoyed seeing the photos as much as I enjoyed their window display!
