Yes, there were some orange purchases. 😊
I may have purchased 65 yards of fabric. But what makes the story even better...the clerk was generous with her cuts, so I actually received 65 metres of fabric -- 39/40 inches rather than 36 inches.
More orange...no surprise here.
I'm going to be an Auntie again in September, so a little pink.
Tired of looking at fabric yet? I had two huge bags that were hard to carry because they were so heavy.
The many, many bolts of fabric were so overwhelming. Dena and I were the only two in the fabric department, but we kept the two clerks busy cutting fabric. LOL I picked up some Michael Miller, Henry Glass, Riley Blake, Robert Kaufmann, and RJR Fabrics.
And if that wasn't enough, we stopped at quilt shops in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia on the way home. I never need to buy fabric ever again....but we all know that I will. 😊
Part 1 of the great quilting adventure started a few days before -- I bought a used serger. I've been wanting one, but didn't want to spend a lot of money as I wasn't sure how much I would use it. Thanks to Brenda for facilitating the sale since she lived closer to the seller. Here's my new $60 toy.
You'd think that was enough spending and fun for one week....but you might as well go big or stay home. I got up early the next morning (I couldn't convince Dena to come with me -- we still had a full-day Sew In with our guild) and went to an estate sale and bought a Singer Featherweight 221 for $200. ♥ ♥ ♥
She's off for a cleaning and tune-up. I'm looking forward to testing her out.
Unfortunately, she didn't come with a case, but I did get the original feet and manual.
I need help naming my Featherweight. Comment with your suggestions for a chance to win two patterns: Candy Dish by Jaybird Patterns and Sweetpea Pods by Lazy Girl Designs. The giveaway will be open until midnight Tuesday, July 11, 2017, and is open internationally.
Time to start washing fabric and making room in my sewing room...where am I going to put all this fabric???
