So I'm home from flying visit number two and I'm off for flying visit number 3 in about 5 hours time. This one will be even more flying than the last two - Dad is buying a ute in the city and we're taking him up in Taylor and coming straight home.
Well, we might stop for a shop. Again.
Today I got myself to Allingtons and bought another pair of boots,
and also to the Gepps Cross Spotlight store, and honestly, I was both disappointed and relieved. The quilting fabric selection was TINY - smaller than here in the Mount. This was the store that I was gunna work at, and there wasn't even a sea of pretty prints for me to hang out in.
Okay, so maybe that's a bit harsh. I found 10 fabrics I liked that I hadn't seen in the Mount, but I was expecting a kind of quilt fabric nirvana. Back when I was working at the local store we sent them all our discontinued fabrics while they were setting up, and I took that to be an indication that there would be a million billion discontinued fabrics there for me to snap up.
These 5 were $8 a metre each.
There's plenty of black and white and red fabrics for that piece to go with, and I'm harbouring hopes of doing an all-yellow quilt sometime soon.
Owls are apparently very in right now. Annoyingly these were on rolls so they didn't qualify for the 20% off they have at the moment, even though the tag said it was quilting fabric. So they were $12.95 a metre.
Another fabric I think will make a cute gender neutral tickertape. I want to get some pinking shears at some point, because I think it would look better. I suspect I wont get around to the for a while, what with all this holidaying I'm doing on my holidays, but I can still hope.
I got a swag for my birthday so I wouldn't have to sleep in the back of the car. But I'll be doing that tomorrow anyway.
