There is nothing like some satisfying retail therapy.
the Spotlight store I usually visit has had pretty slim pickings for quite awhile in regards to patchwork fabric. I used to always go to one that was close to the nursing home where my grandparents were but since they passed away I haven't been out that way. That all changed tonight! DH offered to drive me there,(must be sick)!
Theyhad a bumper, wonderful selection of patchwork fabrics and a lot of 1930's and civil war type fabrics. I don't know if they have just had a new delivery but whatever, I was in heaven. The clincher was that they were a great price. I managed to add to my stash of both of these types of fabrics and next week I will go back to get some more loveliness. (I am hoping to use these for my Sweet nostalgia borders and counting on having some leftover for some hexagon flowers)
These 'holiday' finishes went to their new home this week too and were welcomed with much thanks and appreciation.
The new Sweet Nostalgia block is out and it has a lovely seaside theme to it, I only have the leaves on the trees to finish on last month's block so that counts as close to a finish, doesn't it? Tomorrow I am off to get some more of the homespun for the last two stitchery blocks and I am just hoping that I can match it at the store I brought it from. I will have to have my fabric blinkers on though as they also specialise in 1930's fabrics and civil war fabrics.
Focus-cream homespun, cream homespun, cream homespun..........
Have a great weekend!
