Amazing really

An afternoon and evening spent at the Quilt and Craft fair in Melbourne on Saturday and this is the sum of purchases...

A very useful 14 and 1/2inch square ruler bought with a specific purpose in mind, maybe now some of my quilt blocks will become quilts??

Two buttons and a pair of scissors just because they were there at the time.

A closer look at the little bits - two amazing Theodora Cleave buttons to use on Christmas decorations and a pair of the Scissoroo scissors.

Of course there were lots of beautiful quilts on display for inspiration, but alas I didn't take any photo's, just enjoyed the the quilty goodness in the moment.

This gorgeous fabric was purchased on my visit to GJ's Friday of last week.

It is destined to become a patchwork scarf for Miss15.

The fabric on the far right is flannel for the back to make it nice and cosy.

I have to say having the sun visiting where I am these past couple of days has brightened things up some!
Hope your week is off to a fantastic start.
Happy Creating

Love the buttons. Cute.

Yes I think I'm going to invest on a square template at some stage too.

Oh and I want one of the dresden templates too...I think I need to find a quilting show!
