A few of us got together yesterday, purportedly to sew all day, but………
We gathered early and enjoyed a cuppa and a chat,
during which I lamented the fact that I didn’t have enough fabric to bind the quilt I picked up from the quilters last week. Before you could say “fabric”, we were in a car heading to Treehouse Textiles!!
I do like this store; Emma has made it a go-to haven with a friendly atmosphere, beautiful fabrics to choose from and great service. As an added bonus, Cathy was there too, and after showing her my quilt, she asked what I’d had in mind. I had been thinking either orange or yellow. Cathy immediately produced The Perfect Yellow, but to satisfy my curiosity I chose an orange, which turned out to be The Perfect Orange! What to do?? Because, of course, I couldn’t decide which one……..so I’ve bought both and will do a half/half binding!
My companions also dabbled in a bit of fabric consumption, then it was back to a late lunch
Before we could get needle and thread to fabric, it was time to leave, so our sewing day sorta kinda turned into a shopping/eating day! All my fault!!
Back home, The Golfer suggested dinner at the golf club and as I’m not one to turn down a meal I don’t have to cook, we dined out on the balcony at the club with this for our view.
A delightful way to end a lovely day.
