So after I'd waved her off I went to bed with a book for a bit. Until I heard the post lady delivering a parcel - the order I placed with U-Handbag on Thursday night arrived before 8am this morning!! I've had nothing but fantastic service from U-Handbag. Whilst it was tempting to play with the goodies inside I decided to take myself off to Oxford to stock up on some foodie treats in Marks and Spencer's. It had said on the news the summer sales had been brought forward and there were loads of great sales on. I think they'd missed Oxford - or I'd missed them. That said I did buy myself a dress with loads off the price. It's a grown up sort of dress and I'll need the right sort of grown up occasion for it. But given I've grown out of quite a few of my dresses it was required.
When I got home I pulled fabrics for my Brit Quilt Swap Round 3 Quilt.
This is mainly Flea Market Fancy and some of the lines for the Joann's ranges
I've kindly had sent to me in swaps etc.
I always do hexies so this time I went for octagons - 8 of them!
I'm auditioning fabrics for the backing.
So that's my day so far. I'm not sure whether to go with the linen as a back ground or something else. Something I may have to purchase? Still I have plenty of time to procrastinate a while longer. Maybe I'll make a framed pouch while I'm doing that procrastinating. Well, I do have new frames to play with.
