Some shopping and lovely gifts from Chookyblue

Not only did I get to spend the weekend with my friend
Chooky but I also got spoilt with some gifts....
This lovely roll of fat 8ths that Chooky picked
up at "The Home Patch" in Bathurst on Friday for me...
Here they are with 2 fat quarters that Chooky also gifted to me
 for my Birthday in 2013, I have been saving them for just
 the right project and I now have these others
 that will go with them perfectly....
We both had a good giggle at just how well they
 went together because Chooky had forgotten about
 the fat quarters so it was really a fluke... 
Chooky also got me this handy little ruler when we were at
Hobby Sew that I can keep by my machine
 to check seam sizes etc easily....
Feeling very Spoilt indeed!
We went to Hobby Sew for some thread and we
 came home with some bargains of cause!!!!
We found this fabulous backing that Miss Chooky
DID NOT BUY but we both think it would be perfect on the
 back of her EPP quilt you can read about it HERE I am sure she
 will be sending me back some time soon to get some....
 
A few bits to add to my stash that were
half price or end of bolt sales....
The Studio now has 2 bolts of fabric....LOL!
Looking very professional indeed!

I had to buy a bag to bring our purchases home in, I couldn't
resist the one with a vintage machine and accessories
 on and the studio now has 2 bolts of fabric propped
 up on the bench.....Ha Ha
 Looks really professional now! 
So much for ducking out for some thread....
It is so nice to be doing some blog posts this week and I thank
 you all for stopping by and visiting with me and especially to
 those who leave a comment, It's nice to know I am not talking
 to myself although that is a frequent occurrence at my place....

Until next time, Happy Stitching

Oh I do like that backing fabric. I also feel like I talk to myself a lot or speak another language. The studio must have got quite a workout.

Chooky definitely needs to go back for the backing, it's perfect for her lantern quilt. Looks like a pretty good weekend together.
