Shopping!

Today some friends and I did what all quilters do - went SHOPPING!

 We went to a local quilting shop that is now located on a farm.  It was a lovely drive and the fabrics are lovely.  We all spent way too much, but I think I might be going to have something soon which will use up some of this - I'll tell you about it in a little while.

 First up are two water/sky fabrics and two foliage fabrics.  I will lie awake tonight dreaming of landscapes.
Next a sunset sky and a red sky that I thought would be great in a desert scene.  The fabric on the right has rocks, and bubbles and water and sky and the colours are so gorgeous, I had to have it.
I have a thing for teacups and teapots, so I couldnt go past this one.  I have so many teacup/pot fabrics now, I think it will be a series of quilts.


And last but not least, I fell in love with this Kona bay panel which is quite large.  I could just see it thread painted, especially the flowers and the pine needles and bark.  This one is aching to be done.


So I've had my shopping fix for a bit... although  the Australian quilt Convention is a few weeks away....and I said I'd go....well, maybe just look at the displays?......LOL.



Very short post today.  Not much work done, but a fair amount of inspiration.
