    Hi, I just thought I would share what I see as great fortune, I spent Christmas up in Basingstoke in Berkshire England and my DIL and I went into Town on Monday to see if there were any deals on Fabric and woe and behold I found enough fabric )4 different types ) to maKE MY MIL's lap quilt for when she is out and about on her mobility scooter. Beatifull shades of Buirgendy plains and florals.
    They were only asking 2.39 per metre for 100% cotton.
    I am so chuffed as around Cornwall I would have paid double (and possibly more) than that.

    Fabricland in the main shopping mall in Basingstoke. Worth a visit and the young woman who served me was really helpful especially when I said I was a learner, she worked out how much fabric I needed and gave me some great tips to.
    Enjoy your visit.

    How exciting for you! I have a question, what does "chuffed" mean exactly? I've never heard it before.

    I think 'chuffed' may mean excited. But I am not sure, but that is how I understood it in the post.
