Today I went shopping with C and it was a huge success. Normally C, L, and I go out together - L is out for a bit because she has a newborn.
We started in a local quilt shop that had a 30% off pre-inventory sale - off everything, notions included (with a .5m minimum cut on bolts). They were shut down for about 3 weeks with the ice storm we had in December - usually this sale is between Christmas and New Year's - this year it's later and longer. I also registered for the last leg of my Dear Jane class.
I shopped away and picked up this bundle
The colour is off in this picture - it's various shades of cream with a purple blender type fabric. It will be a low volume quilt for someone I work with. I'll take more pictures of the progress in daylight so the colours should show up better.
I also picked up this pattern:
I've seen it made - someone at guild made one - it's stunning. I owe a cousin a wedding quilt - she's been married about 5 years now so it's time I got going on it. In my defence, for my late start, she can't decide what she wants or a colour scheme so I've decided for her.
Then we hit a yarn shop. C would like to learn to knit so we decided to stop there to see what they had.
There I got:
Then a quick stop for lunch.
The we headed into Toronto to Sew Sisters. I've never been there. It's a great shop and I'd definitely go again.
There I picked up:
And this fabric for crib shoes:
It's a lot of sports fabric - which would suit some boys.
Overall, I outspent C by quite a bit. This is highly unusual. Usually C and L bully each other into spending and I'm a tight wad. Today I spent. It is good.
On the way home, we were busy chatting and took a detour through the airport because of a turn we made. I'd just like to say that I wasn't driving.
Tonight I finished this Dear Jane block:
How did you spend your Saturday?
