The little girls and I have been out to Spotlight this morning. I had to do that boring bit of shopping. The one that actually costs quite a bit of money but you end up with stuff that's not so exciting. I purchased backing fabric and the border fabric for my Nostalgic Quilt and bought 3m of quilters muslin, in a very wide width of 170cm. Wish I'd known about that before! This will be the backing for the nine patch quilt I made weeks ago. Will be nice to see that one quilted.
I dangerously stopped by at The Crafty Needle to look for a suitable binding fabric for the latest quilt and threads. My girls go silly there for some reason, which is very naughty of them. Also dangerous because I am easily tempted to buy something rather stunning whilst there. I resisted, gosh aren't I a good girl?
Nothing says 'Spring is here' better than a blossom tree, does it?
Look at what I also picked up at the quilting shop. There is to be a craft fair in Hamilton next month! It's meant to be fantastic according to Ngaire, shop owner and occasional reader of my blog. Someone else put her up to that one!! I'd better behave myself!!
And look who has moved into the reserve next door. There were a pair of them after school yesterday. We took some bread over for them but they were a bit timid. It's nice to see at least one of them around today.
