I've been shopping!!!!

Oh it's been a lovely day!!! The dust has all settled, mostly on my car he he he, and I drove out to Ipswich today to have lunch with some fellow bloggers. Khris is in town for a retreat with Cath, Naomi, Sharon and Jeanette ...... and today I got to meet up with 4 out of 5 of them :o) (Cath couldn't make it today ....... HI CATH :o)!!!!!). We had a fabulous time together in quilting and fabric shops then off for a really yummy lunch - believe me - I didn't need much dinner tonight ;o). You're not going to believe this though ..... I forgot to take piccies!!!! Yes I did - grrr!!!
I did however manage to take a piccy of what I bought. Not a lot today but all delish :o). I bought these gorgeous keys and thread from
Country Quilt Co ... a fave shop of mine. I seem to have a 'thing' about keys lately don't I LOL?? But aren't they cute. The thread is from threadworx, lovely to work with ...and I also found some sandcastle fabric for stitcheries ... that's what my goodies are resting on ;o). And all of this arrived in the mail yesterday!!!!! I'm in love with these gorgeous Simple Abundance fabrics from Moda. I bought a honeybun and a charm pack .......
Also a honeybun and charm pack in the new Fig Tree Quilts range "Mill House Inn" .... it's simply devine!!!! Oh I LOVE it, I can't wait to play with this one :o).....
And of course I've been shopping at my local patchwork shop Bayside Stitchcraft (love it!!). These gorgeous dotty prints and the pretty yellow check behind them were just $9.95 a metre!! Of course you just KNOW I'm going to be going back for more :o)!!!
Here's a little reminder for you!! Don't forget Cheryl's giveaway for our "Among the Gumtrees" launch ... she's got some absolutely fabulous goodies there up for grabs ... go and have a peek, you won't be disappointed........ and don't forget to leave a comment to be in the draw!!!
Talk soon .........

You have been shopping! I love the keys - I have started a little collection myself and am currently bidding on ebay for some old fashioned padlocks to put with them.
All that fabric looks very inspiring. Have fun with it.

Oh Joy...I love your wonderful finds :) I too am collecting old keys and have done for over 20 yrs now. Mine are all in an old tin and I should get them out and make a nice display for them. Which box they are in I cannot remember! Too many stashed around. One day I will have all the boxes gone! hugs

Hi back to you Joy... was sad when they said they were meeting up with you... but had so much work to do and didn't want to leave hubby on his own again as I had spent the day before away from him and was going to be away for the retreat all weekend....

we might be able to meet up another day and have a nice lunch somewhere.
