This is what I bought at the boatshed quilt shop.....
a gorgeous bag from Melly and Me, it was on display in the shop and because I am a bit of a bag lady I had to have it. Mum bought some fabrics to finish off a quilt she is working on.. no pics...sorry.
then we drove over to Paynesville on the Gippsland Lakes... it was such a perfect day..

and we visited "Gone Quilting"

there I found a couple of books to inspire...I managed not to buy any fabric, mind you it was hard, they have a lovely range.....
the "Big Quilts, Big Blocks" is a book using layer cakes, which will be helpful as I have a couple in the cupboard; the other book is the first Material Obsession book and I have ordered a copy of the second book after seeing it on
"Aunties Quaint Quilts"


Then we went into Bairnsdale and had a salad sandwich and coffee and went to the patchwork shop there here I did buy some fabric to make a peg bag...

Little bit by little bit..... I am getting there with this table runner, those squares are actually 1/2" something I didn't realise when I started.....just more fiddly bits.....

Here is another "Truly Scrumptious" girl... just getting going with this one, it is a good one to cart around.....

Well Sheryl some more UFO's what happened to that little promise we made? Or was that just me. A true friend is someone who helps you to spend money.

Your TS girl looks gorgeous ... reminded me I must do something about getting my top quilted!
Glad you liked the Material Obsession book ... I've been eyeing off the first one too.
