Spotlight bargains/this and that......

Remember this.............the bags shoved full of fabric...............
All sorted now..........
Mine on the left and Janice is on the right..............
Twister quilts in the planning......
the 8 fabrics on top - 10" squares
small floral with white background - 6" borders
blue chevron - narrow border
big floral - border
red chevron - binding
bottom fabics - backing
Can't wait to get into it..............
We got 1metre cuts................WOW....was not thinking how close this was in cutting 10" strips...........a couple of pieces I had less then 1/4" to play with..............
They also gave us these cut little tins...............
&&&&
I have several posts to write but I can't concentrate on anything since I got home.......it was a busy time while away.......lots of emails to catch up on.......
I did vacuum the Chookshed as I could not stand walking in there anymore........
dust (grit), fluff and dead bugs/moths everywhere.......
got some washing done but need to attack the dead bugs that have overtaken my home....not sure why they think they need to come into my house to DIE........lawns to mow........
&&&&
no rain to measure......
.....but it's not stinking hot today.....28 today with a lovely breeze.......
4 days of rain forecasts resulted in 1ml of rain - so cruel....
 
  we need about 100mls of rain to do anything.....
"drought drinks" might be on the "to do" this week........
Catch you later

PS so nice to be home in my own bed............

  11. Oooh, those fabrics are beautiful -- I can't wait to see your quilt! And why DO bugs think they need to come inside? We've been having a problem with stink bugs. I was knitting the other night and caught sight of one on my shoulder. EWWWW! I jumped up and freaked out -- scaring the lap cats half to death!
