Sunday Shopping

So today Jackie and I went to Sandown - lots of inspiration, a little bit of chatting (!), and loads of shopping!  I managed to restrict myself to purchases that are actually necessary to complete existing projects (well almost restricted!)

From the top: two linens for the red linen quilt, red essential dots to bind the Irish Chain, wood for an idea for an aunt, sea grass, sand, sky and rocks for a lighthouse quilt I've been asked to make, purple essential dots to bind the giant lone star, (we'll gloss over the grey dots) and dotty red oilcloth for another boxy bag!

Oh, AND 

Fusible binding for a friends' stained glass project, buttons for a tshirt adaptation, replacement thimble, and some transfer dies.

This all has overtones of comfort shopping though,  as coming home from Sandown also meant taking Jackie to the airport :-(

Thanks for a great weekend, How long until Festival of Quilts????


  1. some lovely fabric buys, especially like the sea grass. So looking forward to the FOQs can`t come soon enough for me, 3 days for me of seeing all those wonderful quilts and the tempting stalls

  2. How lucky to go fabric shopping at a show with a good friend.

  3. Sounds like you had a nice trip to Sandown! Glad that there was lots of inspiration as well as lots of shopping!!

  4. Gosh! Catching up with all your posts. Haven't you been busy and having Jackie over again too! I don't know how you fit it all in!!
