Shopping by Proxy ...

... at The Festival of Quilts!
... OK, so I couldn't go this year, but that doesn't mean I didn't get a little shopping in! C'mon! Its the biggest quilt event in the UK, I had friends who were more than willing to spend my money for me.

So what did I buy, I hear you ask? Well... for my red phase ...
As well as some Aurifil threads, and this beautiful Oakshott, hand loomed cotton, great colour don't you think? It's called 'Lettuce' and I just love it, so much so it was top of my shopping list.


This is from Hannah's Room, 40 x 10" squares of awesome batiks. Yummy!

Some more Batik, although this is from my friend Jean, she had half of the blue/tangerine that arrived last week, so this is a swap! And a couple of FQs of orange, just because ... well you know how it is! (grin)

Lastly, no trip is complete without a couple of books to whet the appetite! Watch this space!Not bad shopping by proxy, and this all came with change too!

Trudi you purchased some nice things. I love that red bundle of fabric. A nice red is always so hard to find. I have never used Artful thread.

It's always nice to be able to shop by proxy. Those are great buys, money well spent no doubt.

You've got some great things there. I especially like the red fabrics. What are you going to do with them do you know? Or are they just being collected for the future?

Lovely! I like the green one very much. I saw all your quilts hanging at the New English Quilting stand too. The booth looked great as a result.
