An Away Day

Today was our area day for Scotland of the Quilters' Guild and we had it at the Perth Race Course. It was a beautiful day, very windy (specially on the Forth Road Bridge!) but sunny and even on the motorway there were beautiful views and vistas. I did not take a photo as I was driving and so it would be a bit unsafe, as well as probably illegal. But I never cease to be amazed by the beauty of my adopted country.

I went with the firm intention of NOT buying any more fabric but needless to say this did not last and once I started I found it hard to stop. There are simply so many gorgeous fabrics available and more coming out all the time. I bought these mainly for my mixed-media and ATC work and maybe for a few quilties, who knows?? But they will come in useful, one of these fine days! And yes, I also bought a book despite the same resolution re books. I'll review it for you in due course but the title is: Piecing with Pixels.

love that lemon/lime/orange fabric!

I have the same problem - I can't stop buying. Period. I think it's a disease. LOL

oooh . . . the top one I can see being transformed into some "lemon&lime" ATCs for September's Colour Groupies challenge : )) what fun to see the new fabrics you found, Frieda. I must admit that I have been tempted by the site I shared with you, the Fat Quarter shop more than once in the past month! It makes me wonder if I should stop receiving their newsletters . . . nah!
heehee, lenna
