Fabrics, patterns & things.


Monday i went out to Judy Gray's She has opened her patchwork shop under her house. Lots of lovely fabrics in her 2 week sale at $5 & $10 a metre. I bought the above fabrics Monday. The fat 1/4 bundles was $25 for 10 pieces.

I've been after a ruler holder for a while so i bought this one from Cath. Cute little mousie being observed by cats. Then whilst lying ill in bed on Wednesday the postie bought me these.
Ok i only bought the top 2. The name of the bag you can't see is "pretty hexagon baskets". The 3rd one was a surprise. The lovely Linda sent it to me as a thankyou for continual support of her shop. What a sweetie. Also whenever Linda sends the patterns out she includes 2 charm squares. One day i'll have enough to create something. :)
Thursday while shopping in Woolies i discovered these. Cut little ladybird pegs & they found their way into my trolley. Hey, they are so cute who could resist. Besides purple, cats & sewing notion thingys i love ladybirds. :)
Then about lunch time Thursday my SIL rang to see if i wanted to go back to Judy's instead of Spotlight. "sure, why not". So i took my bag of patterns that sit patiently by the back door waiting for fabrics to be bought for them. My bag of patterns amused Judy. The above fabrics are for a Natalie Ross pattern.
These fabrics are for Melly & Me's cute giraffe pattern
Another bundle of fat 1/4's. I'll use these on the Natalie Ross bag.
Well that's my week so far.
Hugs, Jeanette

Lovely assortment of goodies both purchased and received.
I like your idea of having patterns needing fabric together in one place ... usually when I get the opportunity to buy fabric, I've left the pattern I need at home.
