I went to Ireland this past year and I found a couple of lovely shops to purchase fabric.
The Cloth Shop was really fresh simple and had loads of Liberty of London and Amy Butler. The sweet shop owner's daughter had a little friend under the cash counter and he looked just like our little Teddy. It is on south King Street if you are ever so lucky as to go there.

Also, very near here was an absolutely fantastic Ribbon shop full of spools and spools of glorious trim. This darling window display was so adorable!

And on the way back to the hotel crossing the big boulevard near the River Liffey, a fashion statement indeed!

So, here's wishing you happy March sewing and in the words of William Butler Yeats:
"Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver lights,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light..."
