I have to share my excitement with you!
I just had to take advantage of the Aussie dollar being so strong of late, and so I made my first purchase from the US!
I got quite a few items from the Fat Quarter Shop that were on sale, and so including postage I think I saved around $80! Which is alot of money! I mean, if you put it in fabric perspective that's 22 fat quarters!
Talk about major excitment when it arrived a week later in a big box, all the way from the States. I've been admiring it so much that I didn't have a chance to post about it earlier!
So, I treated myself to a Glace Jelly Roll, a Patisserie Turnover and a yard of coordinating fabric, and a bundle of 19 Ginger Blossom Fat Quarters from Michael Miller. Which ended up costing only $1.60 per fat quarter!!
So I didn't go extravagent or extreme, but I am thoroughly pleased with my purchases, and I cannot wait to start using them. That's the problem though. I want to use them now. Not in a few weeks time when I've finished other projects. But now.
And yes, I will certainly be purchasing more as long as the Dollar stays strong!
I also had a lovely suprise in the mail last week. Back at the beginning of the year I joined in a Medallion Quilt Round Robin swap. So all through the year I have been recieving other ladies quilts and adding a border on. Well, I finally got mine home!
And so here it is!
I asked for a predominately white quilt featuring the red, blue, yellow and green fabric colours in my center square.
I'm really happy with the result, which was totally different to what I was expecting! So a big thank you to all the ladies who participated in my quilt top. You've done a fabulous job!
