I didn't really buy that much

I don't think so anyway.  The first few things I saw were batiks and I thought of them for the Pacific Rim patterns I got a few weeks ago.  Then I put them back.  I wasn't sure how much I needed and why buy when you really don't know what you need.  For that I deserve a pat on the back.

Then I saw these.  I knew I needed them so as there were two I picked them up. 
This is what I plan on doing with them.  It's a free download from The Fat Quarter Shop.  I found it one night while talking to someone on the phone about how to use up charm squares.

So far I had only spent $22 and I was halfway through the show.  I was feeling pretty darn good and then it happened.  I saw this being shown to someone in a booth and it was love at first sight.


This is called Stonehenge and it is suppose to be a table runner.  I don't know about that.  I'm thinking of hanging it in a window.  I'll see about that when it's done.  All I have to do is quilt it.  How simple is that!  Then they had this other kit. (It's there in the bottom left hand corner.)  You got the pattern and the fabric for the top.  My colours.  I bought it.

I told you we went over to Greenwood Quiltery in Guelph.  I did find two patterns one at the show and the other two I picked up at the quilt shop.
one is for a friend and I bought this red/white strip for the binding for this quilt.  Not quite what I wanted and perhaps I should have waited, but I would like to get going on this child's quilt. 

The one pattern in the middle is the one I bought at the show.  I read it and I'll have to do it one day all by myself cause I have to think when I'm putting it together so I don't mess up.

That was it.  Nothing more!  Charleen beat me in the spending department.  She bought fabric for the top of a quilt in another booth.  It wasn't my cup of tea.  Too bland is the word that comes to mind, but soft would probably be more appropriate.

Karl and I are off today.  We are heading out to find some fall colours.  We are taking "the girl" as we plan on making a day of it.  Our cameras are all charged up and ready to go.  Have a good day everyone.

Tomorrow.......................I'm swapping, yes indeed I'm swapping.................between you and me.....
