I had very little, so off I wobbled (due to sprained ankle) to our local ` enter at your own risk´ patchwork shop and this is of course just what you should not do. If you have children, send them or your husband, a neighbour or anyone who won´t be tempted by a wicker basket full of very pretty fat quarters in blues, creams, reds and tans, all just sitting there saying ¨buy me, I´m perfect for your mug rugs¨ A lovely design called A Quilters Garden by Bird Brain Designs, Of course I preferred the reds but contrarily bought the blues and here are just some of them.
Aren´t they pretty? Ah, and see that green fabric? well that at least is from my stash.
and the chocolate cake colour fabric also.
I nearly left the shop without the applique paper, so pleased as I was by the new fatties and some pen refills. I noticed with interest that the iron-on adhesive is American and called Heat n´ Bond, the first time I have seen it here and it costs 6,30 euros a metre. I wonder how that compares with prices in other countries? Really must remember to buy it online because if I buy fabric every time I really just need the applique paper, it certainly works out expensive.
