I was very productive on Saturday - firstly I was able to get all the fabric sorted and cut for the next block of "Down In The garden" (more about that later) and then I went off on a road trip with my friend Helen, and my daughter Alice, to Bungay. The main purpose of our trip was to go to Sew and So's, and of course I just HAD to buy some fabric while I was there. Well it would've been silly to go all that way and not buy anything wouldn't it? Last week when I was in Quilters Haven I bought the medium pair of "Perfect Scissors" by Karen Kay Buckley, and they are simply WONDERFUL - so I've invested in the large pair too! I'd already bought the small ones last year, and really couldn't live without them, so now I have the complete set. My sister is a quilter, and she had mentioned that she likes using "Star" hand quilting thread. As I don't hand quilt, I hadn't heard of that brand of thread, but spotted a basket full of spools while I was browsing, so bought her a couple of spools ready for when I see her next. Oh and yes, I did buy some fabric - a gorgeous fat quarter bundle of beautiful batiks in shades of aqua and lime green that I simply had to have. And yes, we had lunch at the wonderful cafe in Bungay too - the crab and crayfish pate was delicious - sorry there's no pictures, but I promise you it was almost as delicious as the chocolate orange cake that I had afterwards!
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
