With Miss Helen on holiday we, Helen, Karen, Maree and myself, took the opportunity to have a bit of a shop crawl. The others hadn’t been to the quilt shop, so we headed there first. I knew they’d love it, and from the moment they walked in the door there were exclamations of pleasure and delight.Being a huge Kaffe fan, Helen was mesmerised by this displayAfter nearly two hours(!) of cruising, perusing, drooling and decision making we bundled ourselves and our purchases into the car and headed to nearby Lilies on Brougham for a delicious lunchAs well as a cafe, the front rooms are filled with beautiful homewares and clothes
I, of course, planned to buy not a thing………ahemKaren was taken with these tins (notice I resisted, although I did pick them up twice) and a little fabricMaree bought a backing from the specials and a few “lollies” of Kaffeand Helen? Helen had the time of her life amongst all that KaffePardon? You can’t see it all? Oh, ok……this better?and with that book, Helen now has two more quilts in mind to make!
Our next stop was Sewn and Quilted which we always enjoy visiting with its eclectic range of fabrics.They had a new shipment of Liberty which neither Maree nor I could resistKaren picked up some spotsand Helen……….yep, more Kaffe and, ooh, one of my templates !
