On Sunday I went to all the important shops in Dubai…. one cheap fabric shop down in the souk, and the two quilt shops 🙂 Silly me, I forgot to take photos of the shop in the souk…. and I can’t take a photo of the fabric I bought because my dear friend who was with me took it back in her suitcase since she had more weight allowance than I did 🙂 I will have to show you all when I get home.
My friend is a seasoned traveler who carries a little set of scales with her so that she can weigh her purchases to avoid paying over weight on the plane! My bag came to 5 kg….. 🙂 I was very pleased to be able to send those kilos back with her!!
In the afternoon I met up with another friend who took me to Craftland, one of the quilt shops. There wasn’t a lot of fabric there (but never mind, I already bought five kilos, right?!), however they had a lot of notions and other cool stuff.
I was quite restrained and only bought these goodies:
Then we went to the other quilt shop, Classic Quilts:
Lots of yummy fabric here:
And in a corner of the shop:
Hmmm… looks a lot like what I have in one of my rooms!!
I was also very restrained here, and just bought these two items:
Of course today I met up with another friend who had only been to Classic Quilts and not to Craftland or the souk, so I HAD to go to all three shops again to show her around…. poor me… but that will have to wait for another post 🙂
