I've been wanting this Heather Bailey pattern since before it was 'buyable'. Do you remember the Mary Engelbreit issue a few years back?
O.k~ I couldn't resist.
There's a nice quilt shop that is a little far for my car to get to.
The other day my Mom, sister and I made a little tour of the countryside scouting garage sales and wound up in the town of a Mom and Pop quilt shop I like. I couldn't resist taking advantage of the situation and dropping in to see if they had anything new. Of course I knew they would ; )
I've been trying really hard to be good and use what I have on hand. Maybe I'll re~ challenge myself next month ; )
I wound up going with a pale sagey blue color scheme of fabrics with a little orange thrown in. I don't think I'll be using them for the bag but you never know.
And of course I really couldn't resist stopping by the thread display on the way out. Lol.
If you've been reading this blog for awhile you'll probably remember me sharing about them here and here.
Here are some more photos on my flickr page ( if you're interested :o ), that didn't make it to the blog. (I'm a little embarrassed to say, that's just the page tagged with 'thread').
I admit, I have a 'problem'. This rack is half full of just the Presencia brand .
I have 2 full thread boxes and 1 full rack of other brands, but I can't resist these colors...They seem to carry all of the "in betweens".
as here. Can't wait to use them : )
