As I live on an island, it's sometimes hard to find what I need to satisfy my little head that's about to explode with all my increasingly creative ideas. You know the feeling, don't you?
There is this little fabric shop in Victoria, The Cloth Castle, which I love, but when it comes to real embroidered fabrics worthy of a Bollywood star, I often have to look on American sites.
