Buying Fabric

The weather hasn't improved; so our kiwifruit and lots of other orchardists' fruit is still on the vines. The picking season is way behind the same time in some other years. We are trying to remain optimistic....It will clear up; the sun will shine; the fruit will get picked ....Soon..!
Yesterday I went into the city to have my hair done and do a little shopping. I needed another high contrast fabric to go with this lovely purple. Tomorrow at our Quilt Group we are having our usual Friday, followed by a Midnight Madness, where we all have dinner together then work on a project till we are so tired we must go home. Some of us have opted to do a class taken by one of our members making "Magic Blocks". Just 2 fabrics are needed one light one dark. I have seen some examples of what she has in mind and most were done with black and a light marble moda type fabric. I decided to be a little different with my choice. I didn't have anything in my stash the colour of the light mustard I have chosen. While at the shop I got a few other supplies and used my $20 prize voucher I won at Quilt Group ( for the best Easter Bonnet ...No photo sorry! ) I will show you the results of the blocks in a later post. At the moment I'm washing the fabrics and ironing them dry so I can cut out what I need to prepare for tomorrow.
I'm still finding more new and interesting blogs....Isn't it great...So many creative sharing ladies!!

I just loooooooooooove that purple fabric - so pretty, I think the light mustard you've chosen to go with it is a perfect foil for it - await the block with bated breath
