I am in the middle of a big tidy-up of sewing baskets - I suspect it may be in vain! I have lost/mislaid my favourite scissors - small/medium sized Kai, with lovely sharp points. I am a 'habitual loser', lol! Perhaps they have been thrown out with rubbish? I have bought 3 pairs of different brands since and nothing is like my Kai's!
My new Kaffe FQ's from Hancocks - I've been waiting for ages and I do love them. They cost roughly $2.50 each, which is excellent value for Australia! Also, a piece of French repro by Anna Griffin - just gorgeous, but a pinky red and that is not really what I wanted - never mind! Oh, this came from Reproductions Fabrics - I have been having a little spending spree while the $ is so good! Here bottom right, we have Christine's new patterns - those and top right a gift from her! I really like Rasant thread for piecing and it is up to $13.50 a reel here - not good! So I am thrilled with the threads, thanks, Christine - of course the patterns, too! Left - the latest BOM from Green Tea and Sweet Beans applique, I'll really enjoy this!
Here's a close-up of her Dad's quilt - stolen from me when they came back from England nearly 6 years ago. It is dearly, loved, washed and worn - a real scrappy with quite a story and made in the quilt-as-you-go method.
