Friday, I had a FART - a Fabric Acquisition Road Trip!!!
Off to Toowoomba - to meet Chookyblue, Fiona & Kris plus another sewing buddy Maree.
After a wet and very foggy drive up the range, I met the others in a lovely cafe - on a sunny day it would be lovely looking out at Queens park - today you could barely see across the road . .
Much chatting over a coffee..... as you would expect.
Then off for a short drive - we were heading to patchwork shops - but we met up in a car park somewhere (???) and travelled in 2 cars to the shops. I was wondering if anyone looking on wondered what would make us all congregate in an almost unused car park and then take off . . .Oh well - their problem...not mine.
I did acquire some fabric . . .and a few other bits . . .
but it all has a purpose/project.... no more buying just because I like it. (so far this year I have almost stuck to it! LOL)
After all that hard work - some design decisions had to be made for some other purchases - we enjoyed a small lunch, then a farewell to all and off down the range in even more rain and no less fog.
DH & I then went out for dinner - we had a voucher that had to be used by the end of the month.
Finally home to unpack purchases, plus a few other items I collected . . . .
A busy but very enjoyable day.
Got to love bloggy friends.
