Girls Day Out

Yesterday I went on a shop hop with my lovely blogger friends Sarah, Christine, Vicki and Vicki's friend Chris. We had a great day out. Sarah and I went to Fresh Fabrics at Deloraine, it was a nice shop, very bright and cheerful. This was a very special purchase from that store, It Kokka fabric in Flower sugar, its quite thick like a canvas. It will make a beautiful bag. At $35 a meter I only could afford to buy one.



Here we all are at The cherry shed for afternoon tea. It was delicious.


We went to a shop called Wells,I hadn't been there before. I got these christmas fabrics to make my christmas ornaments using the Theodora Cleave buttons.






I also found some Riley Blake Sugar and Spice fabric from Picture patchwork. I had used some of it before to make my stitching folder so I bought a few extra fat quarters to make something else.







Here is my stitching folder, I also made a matching lap top cover a little while ago.


TodaY I have 3 bindings to sew on my quilts so I will be pleased to get that done. I hope you find some sewing time today.

Hi leanne love the purchases you made and that cream tea is making my mouth water. I am dying to get my hands on some Theadora Cleave buttons but the shipping cost is way to expensive. I popped a letter in the post a few days ago hope it gets to you will you let me know when it arrives please. hugs x

Oh leanne, the only thing better than that Sugar & Spice is the Sugar Flower fabric - love it. It's no secret that I have a sweet tooth. Wish I was there for the afternoon tea too! Tracee xx

Hi Leanne! I love your sugar and spice fabrics. I looked it up and found some more if you need it (and can't find it anymore) at the quilted castle. It's an online shop only in the states. No affiliation! Just thought I let you know if you run out of fabric...I fell in love ieth it through your blog! And also love the Flower Sugar line. Have bought myself a couple of it before. Wish I could start on that quilt, but first I need to finish up some oldies! Have fun with your fabrics!
