Mmmm Yum! Fabric shopping!

Well... I know I said I was going to be madly quilting yesterday, but I stopped in at Spotlight for some shopping. Well I got slightly carried away! I had two vouchers to get $40 off when you spend $100, so I decided I may as well use both! I bought so many sweet quilting fabrics, plus 5 metres of natural wadding, some plain quilt cotton, and some flannelette. I was quite happy to get all this for just $120. My trolley was full of fabric...and my two year old!


I wanted to get a range of grey prints, as I've been dying to make a pin and grey quilt as I think the colours go so well together. And a few more reds as I was sadly lacking them in my stash!


So now today will be quilting day! I have a few baby quilts tops to do, that I'll be listing on Ebay once they're completed. I've also got a birthday quilt to do for a friends daughter. Once all these are done, I can get stuck into all these yummy fabrics!

Best wishes,
Jenelle

It's so hard to let the coupons go to waste isn't it? I really get bugged when the stores have the massive sales on my off money weeks. Oy. Nice stash you just walked away with.
