Retail Therapy

ahhhhhh......what it is to stand in a quilt/patchwork/fabric shop........









I like buying online, the whole not getting out of the chair and buying at any time of the day/night thing, really appeals to me! But, there are times, when you just have to go touch and absorb!!

These beauties all came from the 'The Vintage Patch' in Springwood. There's always something in there that grabs my attention. I was so thrilled to find Wee Woodland, the dots just screamed Christmas tree ornaments to me. Very hard to pass up on Heather Bailey bargains, one more to add to my French General collection, plus another which I hope might blend in well too.

I've just put in a small order at 'Hawthorne Threads' for some Far, Far, Away 2. Sleeping Beauty in natural and dusk, plus Roses in the same two colours. Can't wait for them to arrive. Plus I've been given the go ahead to buy a decent stash of Kona Cotton Solids, woo hoo!!

Cheerio for now,
x Mandy

Lynne has gorgeous tempting things at The Vintage Patch, dosen't she. You found some beauties! I got some Far Far Away a few weeks ago, The detail is just gorgeous.

Oh the Aussie dollar is so good at the moment for online shopping. But, you can't go past your local quilt store for inspiration and a chat with the super talented staff working there - as long as they are friendly. Luckily in my 'locals' there are the most beautiful quilters working and make the trip well worth it.
