Fabric frolic

Friday saw Rosalie and I set off to "Fabric Frolic". we hit Ringwood, Boronia, Warburton and Lilydale and my haul of goodies and freebies is pictured here. The scissors were for my secret sewing(love these as they are so sharp. Lilly Patches in Boronia) I got two patterns , some material for the quilt as you go and some tilda stuff that is like vliesefix but that stayed in the car till about an hour ago. Both Rosalie and I won(for being first at the counter) some templates but we have to go back to get those as the supplier let the shops down and still has to send them. Shame, that means another trip to some lovely shops.

The inside of my swap, the scissors are just peeking out. A few more goodies are in there and once packed will be in the post.

I have already got the "Ribbit" stitcheries ready to go(iron on transfers make life so easy) so this afternoon I aim to start one of them. This will be for DS1's best mate who will be a dad for the second time in August. 

Yesterday and Saturday I spent hours putting the qag together. I now have to make the cover strips and can do some flowers on some of it. Think this will be put away for a while so I can concentrate on Ribbit. 
Enjoy Australia Day.
