Shopping......

I saw this kit at Stitching Between the Bridges in Tamworth and it made its way to the Chookshed...... It's the latest Tilda fabrics..... So soft and pretty...... 
I got this great tin at a shop in Goondiwindi.....  
They have some lovely shops in Gundy......
These are the best scissors and Sandy @ Shiralee Stitches had a cover with a chain...even better... This little cover is a little easy to lose but not now it is attached..... 
I've had my eye on the quick curve ruler (QCR) since it came out but finally saw it in the flesh so had to buy it.......
I didn't really want to make this pattern with it until I saw Sandy's that she is working on and I decided I needed it..... 
the rest of the shopping.............my kit and Fairy Girls kit..........some fabrics.......the spool holder and a roll of the light brown thread........
I only use Bottomline Thread for my EPP...........it is just the best...........and I rarely use more then 2 colours of thread............
Chinty Tree of Life is a present for me from me.........
Have a great weekend........
very quiet here which will be perfect...........
Catch you later......

  1. All your shopping looks like necessities to me. You will have some fun with that little haul. Lucky you to browse those lovely shops in Gundy. Each time we have visited we have arrived mid afternoon on Saturday and left by lunch on Sunday, so I only get to drool through the windows. I think Mick does that on purpose.

  15. Lotza yummy shopping there. I love tins too. So many fabrics and patterns. That will keep you out of mischief for quite a while. I use cotton thread for my EPP. I am changing to Aurifil 50w . It is so fine and only need a couple of colours. Happy stitching.
