Mmmm ... I'm Feeling a Little Bit Guilty!

Retail Therapy has overcome me - also lovely UFO's!

Let me first tell you Christine of Once Upon a Quilt ... is having a Give-away - it doesn't close until the end of the month, I think - thank goodness that is a long way off!


Next - last week's shopping trip to Materialise and Calico and Ivy - how is that strawberry fabric! I just love it, but won't be using it in the near future - too many other ideas, not to mention quilts to make.

This was yesterday's damage - a few must-haves and some more creative juices flowing. I can't live with out Thimle-its and friend, Barb says the Sewline fabric pencil is a must-have, hope so and I will be trying it out very soon!


Wish I could say I had made this bag - no, bought it at the markets in Thailand, just before Danielle was robbed, if you remember. I took it with with me yesterday and it was a nice size for the shopping I did. Anyway, it was a lovely day and Barb, Jan and I had a lovely lunch at Chatters - Thai seafood salad for me, yum!
I have been ratting around in cupboards and boxes for the last couple of hours trying to find a pattern - well, I did in the very last box that was left - I have done this before! I came across lots of lovely things including books and patterns, so I'll prepare some stitching to do tonight and then have a little read!
Hope you are all enjoying yourselves - hugs!

Yummy fabrics alright! The strawberries are nice, but i'm eyeing off those orange sherbet ones in the first photo. And i'm, not even an orange girl, usually, but they really look good enough to eat!

I love your oranges. I've been collecting them lately and gonna have to get some inspiration on an orange quilt. I'm usually not that bold in my fabric choices.

Lovely fabrics! Looks like you had a most successful shopping trip. Your November posts are all so pretty. I love your dolly split 9-patch. The quilting is so perfect for it!

It is always in the last box isn't it?

I'm blog-hopping my way through Chookyblue's SSCS list to see who else is playing.
