Hic Bibitur, Fabrics and Skype to Barcelona

01 Sep

1    I walked past this house sign in Penryn and was glad of my schooldays’ Latin! Hic Bibitur – Here they drink! The owner came by as I was taking the photo and asked if I knew what it meant, saying it was a most appropriate name as the house is rented out to students!

I love this!

2    I was in my favourite shop this afternoon, buying buttons for the little hoodies that I’ve nearly finished knitting (they are taking forever!) and took photos of these beautiful fabrics.

Christmas fabrics

Beautiful fabrics for children

3   Daniel and Ami called from Barcelona and we Skyped for ages. They are so blissfully happy!

And I am delighted to tell you that my Guest Post for Choc Chip Uru has been posted today. Please check it out here

    AHHH fabrics!! I love the smell and feel of brand new fabric off the roll. I have not seen much Christmas fabric yet, so your pictures make it a first.

      Our fabric shop keeps the Christmas stock in all year round so it’s not really a first. 🙂

        I wish ours would, we have two shops and they only keep a few of the leftovers from the year before. I am sure their new ones are out by now. I should take an afternoon and see all the new fabric, I just cleaned out my craft closet so have plenty of room!!

    We’re online at the same time!! 🙂

    That’s a great name for the place, for sure – & it is wonderful your Latin was able to let the owner know what it meant! Very funny – very choice.

      What a lovely moment! I wish I’d seen this comment at the right moment. Perhaps the students named their place!

      Hope your Sunday is going well 🙂

    Hi Sally,
    I love the torte you made for CCU. I love all those beautiful fabrics, but they remind me of all the quilts I have started but failed to finish.

      Hello, good to meet you and glad you came to me via my Guest Post for CCU and that you like the Torte!

      I just love the fabrics in the shop but they remind me, too, of all the projects I have at home that still need finishing – or indeed, starting! I daren’t buy any more!

    Love Hic Bibitur! Toying with the idea of having a sign made for my little cottage, knowing that no-one round here reads Latin – If you read my latest blog,’ whales, wine and women’, you’ll know why!

      I have read your very beautiful post and commented there.
      I think the sign would be a delight on your little cottage among the blossom trees. 🙂
