Retail therapy

Yesterday took us to a few places.
It was our son Jarad’s first performance since becoming a member of QLD Youth Orchestra. Gosh I always feel so proud when I hear him play in an orchestra. I never thought for one minute one of my children would achieve musically what he has. Gives me goose bumps.

Prior to us going to the old Museum building where the performance was held we decided to go to Westfields at Chermside. A place we hardly ever go.
It must have been meant to be. I saved us sooo much money with all the bargains I bought. Jimmy had no choice but to be proud of me. 🙂
Clothes for me, me and me.
So today I deided that I had to throw out one thing for each new item. Hmmm that is always hard to do.

I got lots of stitching done in the car .
We have made some new paper piecing shapes. Here is one of the new shapes and it goes with the
1 1/4″ pentagon.                                                                            

This is what I have made with them so far. They are going to go with my Faith, hope and love quilt.
Fussy cutting the fabric makes such a difference to the outcome don’t you think?

I have another photo to show you of my friend Kay’s paper pieced quilts.
It’s called Wollondilly because that’s where she started it.
We have a Playing with Paper pack of papers and templates for the centre medallion. Pack 8.

Well it is raining again here so it is a good day for catching up with writing new patterns.


Till next time
