FOQ

Ticking & Cotton from Fabrics Galore
 I had the most  amazing time at the Festival of Quilts on Friday. Despite promises not to spend too much and to simply go and have a look, I came home with very very heavy bags and a very light purse *rolleyes*. Will I ever learn? But then who can resist things like these???
Half metres of extra wide linen prints from Totally Patched
 I definitely want to get some more of these linens. I spied that Courtney at Seamstar has these at a fantastic price so I think I shall be purchasing a few more
A rainbow of solids from Simply Solids
 Unfortunately Mandy was not around when we called in at Simply Solids but her hard working husband(??) was there to help us out. I bagged me a rainbow of FQ's plus some dark grey for a quilt top appearing here soon. My mind actually went blank when I got there as to what I had intended to buy, so watch out Simply Solids - I am sure another order will be coming your way very very soon!!
Cosmo embroidery threads from The Eternal Maker
Threads were definitely the order of the day. As well as these beautiful Cosmo threads (which I have heard wonderful things about) I also treated myself to a fabulous presentation case of Aurifil embroidery threads - great for all the hand quilting I intend on doing. These are just some of my purchases - more were made but I can't admit to just how much I bought so will leave it there *blushes*

Thank you so much, Julie & Lesley, for an absolutely fabulous day. I am now brimming with new ideas and enthusiasm for my WIP's

Oh and I may just have signed up to another Block of the Month - one for Amelia this time *grins*

So, I will leave it at that and go back to finishing the binding on my Joel Dewberry quilt so that can be another ticked off the list!
