What a great three weeks away, I love being around my family since I have none in Australia. It's good to be back and just in time for Valentines day, I hope you all had a wonderful day with your loved ones.
I had one small bag I bought back that was just filled with goodies from the quilt shops we visited. The fabrics are expensive in New Zealand so it was mainly fat quarters that I bought. Feel sorry for them paying $32 per metre for Kaffes. My American friends will be gagging at that.
Some red and whites for my nearly insane quilt which I'm vowing to get back to.
I couldn't go past this wool kit. I'm such a sucker for a kit, I really should tame that beast as I tend to put them away and not get them made. It's a vice I'm trying to curb but I wanted to try it out and a kit is better than buying a stash of wool. See, I justified it, lol.
Romantics, not my usual purchase but oh so very Marie Antoinette that I have a plan for.
The fabric at the back is a Valorie Wells that is perfect for the coloured pencils I want to play with. The linen at the front is a Japanese Echino.
The rest of my purchases were for general stash enhancement that will end up in scrappy quilts or for making small things. Now I think I had better make plans for culling some of my really old fabrics I won't use, I've run out of storage space and I've started taking over the spare room next door to the sewing room.
