A stroll down the Goldhawk Road

Finally, after many bus journeys passing straight through and much talk and recommendations from friends and my boss, I went to the Goldhawk Road. Why, you might ask. Because it's basically a street of fabric shops. And because they are all practically on top of each other, competition is tough which means good prices and plenty of choice. Although there are numerous fabric shops along the length of the road the largest concentration can be found at the Shepherds Bush end, to the right of the bridge when you exit Goldhawk Road tube station. They range from the tiny, higgledy-piggledy stores overflowing with fabric rolls (massively lacking in floor space to move about in) to larger establishments over two floors with neat and orderly stock, some also offer other haberdashery bits and pieces. One thing that can be said of all the shops we went to, everyone is very friendly and helpful. Purchases included 2 metres of brush cotton in a check...I'm thinking it'd be perfect for some lovely soft pj this space.

Here's a little sneaky peak at what's in store for February's project...

And here is a beard update :)
