Books & fabric

I recently bought these books to aid me in ideas for a crazy patchwork round robin that i'm doing with some good friends. Over the years we've done all sorts of beautiful RR's but this is the first time we've tried a crazy patchwork RR. Should be fun & i'm looking forward to seeing what we each make for our 1st block & what each of us makes for the others.
The reason i went into Ipswich Friday was this,
Puttin' On The Ritz layer cake i bought from Jane. I must have been out when the parcelman called or when he knocked. Hope i'm home when the next parcel from Jane arrives as it's inconvenient having to go into Ipswich for parcels now instead of my local PO. Jane also included these lovely 5" squares in the parcel.
Whilst in Ipswich i went to Bargain Box for more fabric to finish off some other bags. I didn't realise they were having 20% off or i'd bought more fabrics. :) lol.
These are what i did buy. I also visited a little shop that sells all sorts of vintage/antique goodies & came home with these,
Not a matching set but close enough for me. I thought them really sweet.

Happy Stitching,

A very successful buying trip by all accounts...I love crazy patch. I have 9 blocks half done in a box...all these ufo's. Love all the fabric you bought and your pretty teacup.
