We met some wonderful people and saw some beautiful things.
I pretty much stuck to the list I had made and actually came home with money to spare so that can't be bad.
Now I'll let the pictures of my goodies do the talking.....
|Rotating cutting mat with free blades and a stock up on the Shmetz needles I love which saved me £14.|
|Shape cut rulers for use with a rotary cutter.|
|I have been after this pattern for myself for ages and will be sourcing some fabulous fabric soon to make it.|
|Glorious kits from Worn and Washed Fabrics to make quilts that look just like they have been passed down from Grandma.|
|A lovely jelly roll with Marlowe's name on it. The green looks a bit washed out here. It's a lovely soft lime in real life.|
|This Layer Cake is so gorgeous it doesn't really need any words.|
|Couldn't pass these fat quarters up at £1.80 each and one day soon they will be turned in baskets.|
|Christmas cushion stash.|
|A bit of blender stash.|
|A bit more blender stash from an offcuts bin for 50p each.|
|This will one day be a bag with a slashed decorative panel on the front.|
|.....and this will one day be a purse for DD.|
My feet, legs and back are destroyed and today I am hobbling around like a little old lady. Goodness knows what I would have been like if we had stayed all day. As it was....the first couple of hours were lovely. After that it was just shuffling along and I don't do shuffling so we went and found the stall where I had seen big cutting mats at a reasonable price, purchased one and then we decided it was time to go.
By 2pm I was being treated to a late lunch at Harvester fairly near to home.
Thank you so much DD for my wonderful early 60th birthday treat......it was amazing.
