Still on the subject of last Saturday's trip to Calico Christmas, as well as some purchases I arrived home with this . ( above ) A tradition we have on this trip is the club supplies snacks for the journey home. This time T and D made us each a noodle box with cute picture on it containing cheese, crackers, sweets etc. As well there was fruit juice and seedless green grapes. But as well we got a small piece of fabric - mine has strange animals in black and white; a tiny packet of novelty buttons and a lovely poem.( click to enlarge so you may read the poem ).
I got 3 metres of extra wide plain white fabric for use in my selvages quilt. I have finished several large squares now.
These are just because fabrics...... just because I like them!
When I started exploring the idea of making a circle based quilt, prompted by one I saw at the museum in Bath in July I did not expect to fine someone else had got there before me.
A weekend of gardening, a bit of drama and some sadness.
