swap and shopping..........

always bad to cut fabric for people as while I was cutting for them I cut a little for me too...........
Hello Lucious by Basic Grey
Thanks Tracey and Deb for your choices..........
a little rotary cutter and some papers.....
and I picked up these fat 1/4's.............very nice..........
this is what I achieved on the day.............I got tied up with a few other things but I do have quite a few more papers prepared..........
I won a giveaway on Cardygirl's blog and she delivered it at GDITC.............so a little bonus...............yummo.............Anni Downs Hatched and Patched fabric..........
as a swap theme for GDITC this year we made a pincushion by Sue Daley.............I was lucky to get Anita's beautiful pincushion and we had the same pattern (there were several patterns) 
this is my pincushion...............it was supposed to have tassels but I didn't have any..............I really wanted to keep it...........another friend got his one..............
Catch you later..............

  5. A lovely stash of fabrics and goodies. Imagine working in a patchwork shop - getting paid in metres of fabric or fat quarters! Sounds good.
