In all my blabbering on about Sunday that I did yesterday I failed - unbelievably - to tell you that I bought a tiny amount of fabric. I had a small budget but wasn't tortured too much as the stalls tended to be catering to a more traditional section of the market. It kept the fabric lust down to reasonable levels.
First off I bought from the Pin It and Stitch girls - Natalie and Tracey. If you have never met them and you live in the UK then I urge you to look out for them. Two of the nicest people out there, with impeccable taste in fabrics. They'll be in Wimbledon in less than two weeks, and Malvern for the quilt show in a few weeks time.
The two Odds & Ends cuts on the left I got a great deal on as they were end of bolt cuts. As was the bit of Posy that I got, shown in the middle. Honestly, this may be Aneela's best line yet, though I am sure there are lots more good lines still to come. And then on the right I have the pink from Lucy's Crab Shack and two cuts from Type. No plans for any of these fabrics other than the firm understanding that life would be incomplete if I didn't buy them.
From another vendor (I cannot remember who) I bought a stack of Simply Color FQs.
The eagle eyed amongst you will notice that the pink isn't actually Simply Color, but the man didn't have any cuts of the pink left so I thought this piece of Heaven or Helsinki went just fine. There is a plan for this but I am awaiting a delivery from my fabric mule before that can proceed. In the awaited fabric are half yard cuts of the Simply Color ombres I bought in an Instagram sale from Jennifer at Knotted Threads (another incredibly nice fabric seller - modern fabric sellers are predisposed to niceness I think). Shipping was included if you lived in the USA so I had the fabric shipped to my fabric mule's LA address.
On to other news. I sold two quilts in the past few days. Really!! I am trying to act mature about it but, honestly, I am squealing like a two year old on the inside. Both quilts are small baby quilts that I have had for ages, dating back to the very early days of the blog, when I started experimenting with doing my own thing. They have sat here doing nothing ever since. Now they can go get drooled on and that makes me exceedingly happy.
The sun is shining. The birds are singing. It's a good day.
