|Evidence of quilt shop sale...|
Then, because we could, we also drove to Fabricland in Keswick, a town about 35 minutes north of us. We had never been to that location before. (Believe it or not).
At the quilt store, Sandra scored some drastically reduced threads, some really cute bug fabric, and she bought each of us an electric blue FriXion pen in electric blue. (Thanks, Sandra!) Apparently, lime green is the best colour to use because it shows up on both light and dark fabrics. Electric blue, according to the lady at the quilt store, is second best. These are cool pens. All marks disappear when ironed. Amazing!
As we were waiting for our fabrics to be cut, we collectively pawned through the fill-a-bag-for $7 scrap bin for buried treasure. We both found bits we liked.
|Big finds of the day!|
My big fabric finds of the day were:
- Amy Butler Lotus fabric for 65 per cent off. (I'll take two meters, please.)
- Fat quarters to use in a Father's Day project for my favourite newspaper man.
- Sweet Water fabrics "Sunkissed" words for $6 a meter. I got 2.5 of that.
Yeah, like I needed more fabric. But it was so pretty, and so calling to me...We finished off our big day out with lunch at a local 50s themed diner. I had onion rings with my burger. Sin on top of fabric sins...
OMG it was good.
The whole day was a bit like Thelma and Louise, minus the cowboy bar and the whole driving off the cliff thing...
I am currently working on some projects for some special graduation girls. All will be revealed very soon!
