Shopping and swapping

This lot shouldn't be at my house it should still be in Hobbycraft.  You see I didn't actually need any of this. I only went in for a quick look but somehow came out with a carrier bag full and a purse £40 lighter.  Maybe I will try to hand quilt something in the future now I've got the hoop, thread and needles.  Sounds like a plan, doesn't it?

Now I definitely needed this lot!  The pins fabric is for my charm swap with Cindy over at Fluffy Sheep Quilting and the charm packs and birdy fabric needed to come and live at my house and be part of the ever growing fabric family.  That's what I'm telling myself anyway.

The fabric arrived at 10.30am this morning and it is already cut and ready to be posted off, how's that for speedy!

Looking at the Flickr group there are some great fabrics that I can't wait to get my hands on and I will be able to tell my husband that I didn't 'buy' any of them! 

Perhaps I shouldn't tell him about the Sizzix big shot and dies that fell into my shopping basket when I was ordering the much needed wadding.....hmmmmmm.

LOL, that's my kind of shopping - when I'm not looking for anything in particular I spend a fortune!

So where did you get wadding from? I'm in need of a re-stock or I might have to cut into a queen piece for a little quilt, oh the horror! I need a pointer for a good deal!

Have fun with your big shot - I played with one at Sewing for Pleasure and was very impressed!
