Well what can I say about the U2 concert........ Absolutely amazing!!! I am so glad I went. We have all their concerts on dvd so I was prepared for what the live concert might sound like and I was also a little prepared to be a touch disappointed in case they didn't sound the same. I needn't have worried they were superb and Bono and the Edge's voices were the best I had heard them. I wish I was going again. No 1 & no 2 son are off to Sydney next week to see them there. I want to go too!!
Now on to crafty business....
The postman made a lovely drop off this week again.He brought this beautifully wrapped package..
......that contained this gorgeous sewing kit. I have seen them on Lynette Anderson's blog and they are always snapped up like gold. Bronwyn Hayes has opened up a blog shop on her blog and she has so many in her shop to choose from. I just had to have one.
This week also saw a visit to one of my favourite fabric stores, GJ's in Lygon St, Brunswick East. They had one of their regular 25% off sales and I desperately needed batting for the numerous tops that need to be quilted. You know what my main job will be these holidays....
Besides the batting I bought some of the lovely Bliss fabrics they had on the bolt. I have a jelly roll and charm pack and want to gradually add some extras. I also found some Super bargain fat quarters to add to my Boys' story quilt. They were only $2.00 each and then there was 25% off them too. Amazing.
Each time I start to sew up a square of the boys story quilt I always regret not having more fabrics so now I think I will have a great range to choose from. My more recent additions are a little brighter than the first stash I had collected but I am hoping they will still blend ok.
In regards to the batting, I purchased a thin polyester batting recommended by one of the ladies at Gj's. Made sense for the tops I have to quilt. I'd love to get other peoples opinions on batting. What do you guys use for batting and why do you choose this type?
Well that is the week that was...
Hope your weekend is cruising along nicely!!
