material shopping

I finally got to go on a fabric shopping excursion today though it is still so darn hot. First off we went to The Country Quilt Co. I'd bought the Garden Of Life stitchery pattern last year at the shop but not the fabrics. So this is what i chose today to do the wall hanging in. Should look lovely in the green & orange tones with the linen look piece for the stitcheries. 2nd stop was supposed to be the new Spotlight. It opened supposedly a week & half ago. Well i can tell you it did not & neither my SIL or i had seen any advertisement to say there was a delay in opening. We weren't impresseed after driving over to West Ipswich battling the traffic in the new road works only to discover it a waste of time. Next stop then was Bargain Box. I bought the burgundy/cream reverse fabrics for Bea's "quilters blessings" BOM from last year. The 4 florals are for Verandah Views BOM. Haven't bought the other border fabric or the binding yet. Just realised didn't buy the binding for the Garden Of Life either. Oh well means another fabric shopping excursion. Who knows maybe Spotlight will be open this time.
