hmmm, fabric acquisitions, just a fancy term for buying more fabric?
This gorgeous charm pack and tiny scissors was a present from my friend Stacy.
And this little bundle of reproduction prints was a present from my friend Lisa!
I did buy the "muffin" packs (10 x fat 1/8s) from Threadbear at Castlemaine - because I don't really have any orange in my stash, let alone my reproduction stash. But they look suspiciously gold in this photo.
Confession I did buy all these 30 cm cuts - also from our trip to Castlemaine! I needed some bright yellow and strong greens. The brick reds at the end were "just because" purchases ...a) I liked the print and b) they were on sale! The soft green the other end wasn't on sale...but I had to have it!
And this my friends is my super sized home grown pear, all 742 grams of it - or for my American friends = 1 pound 10 oz! My son took it to school for show and tell and it came home very bruised. When I cut it up, it was all floury and not nice, which was disappointing as the rest of the crop has been lovely.
Happy quilting Sue.
