Last week was my annual clerk's conference and my roommate and I drove together. When she first asked if we wanted to drive together my only question to her was if it was ok to stop at a quilt store. Since I have recently sucked her into hexies it wasn't a hard sell!!
On the way to conference we stopped at Patchwork Plus in Marcellus. I had been to this store two years ago and, given the number of bolts they stock, knew I needed to go with a shopping list. I just barely stuck to the list :)
|Yes - I adore Downton Abbey! I bought the castle fabric for the back and I'll add in more purples for the front: I'm designing a table runner as a class idea....|
|Our purchases were packed in these fabric bags. I assume they were made from scraps but they were only basted so it was easy to frog out and add to the scrap bins. I love bonus fabric!|
|Hmm...when I went to put the shirtings in my pre-cut drawer I discovered I now have 4 candy packs waiting to be used.|
I best get on that...
|Last but not least, I had my hexified jean jacket on while shopping at the store. The owner told me of a long ago project she saw where someone had modified a mans suit coat and used old ties to decorate it. I thought it sounded cool and was going to file the idea in my brain for later but she went and got a bagful out of the trunk of her car. |
I best get on this idea too!!
Anyone want to go to work for me so I can use all my new goodies??
