Yummy lunch, delicious fabrics and great company :o)!!

Before I tell you about all that .... look at this!!!!! It's my very first Dear Jane block!! We had a workshop at my quilting group last Monday, this is B-2 Sweet Tater Pie. I really enjoyed making it but I'm not going to make any rash promises as to how many of these little darlings I'm going to make ... I'll just keep going until it's not fun any more ;o).
Because of this post ... I had to go shopping!!! I simply couldn't resist these gorgeous coloured Osnabergs that Peg had on her blog!! Aren't they gorgeous???!!! Peg's blogpost sent me here to Sheri's website and before I knew it, these were on my doorstep. Great service :o). Thanks for the 'heads up' Peg ... I love them ;o). It seems all I've done lately is buy fabric LOL ... well, not quite all I've done he he he.
These wool felts are for a certain little Christmas ornie designed by the gawjus Vikki!!! It's the beautiful freebie pattern for week 7 on the Among the Gumtrees blog so don't miss out!!
These are my 'spoils' from todays shopping trip!! Aren't they fabulous???!!! Can you tell I just LOVE spots LOL ..... ;o). Jeanette and I had a wonderful time shopping at Rose Patchwork Cottage, lots of bargains :o).
Both of us bought some of this scrummy pink sandcastle fabric .... mmmmm!!!
We had a lovely lunch together too .... thanks Jeanette for a terrific afternoon, I really enjoyed catching up with you :o)!!!!!
Before I go ... I've had a great response to the "Under Lock and Key" pattern special (on my sidebar) ... I'll leave it at that price for a few days longer . I've been busy writing up patterns lately so I'll have another one very soon for you at a special introductory price so keep an eye out for that :o)!!!
Hope you all had a great day too!!!!

I so want to start some of those DJs. They look like a challenge and such fun. I just have so much to do right now, but the itch is getting worse!

Love all the fabrics you've purchased. You'll have fun.
