So this is a little bit of a happy birthday to me. Husband wanted to know what I wanted to do for my birthday and I really just wanted a fabric store fix. I really wanted to go to the Spool of Thread in Vancouver but it is a long drive. Well, not really, a bit over an hour but we are sort of accustomed to not going all the way into the BIG city. But we did it. And it was great.
First off, we delivered a baby quilt for clever son's lovely girlfriend to give as a gift. It was wonderful to pop in for a quick visit and it solved the baby quilt delivery dilemma. Then off to Spool of Thread. Seriously people, if you live in the lower mainland of British Columbia and have not been there, you should go. Modern fabric quilt shop on steroids. They have THE best selection of Kona solids that I have ever seen. I think they try to keep all of them in stock. I did add a few more solids to the stash including some Kona Melon that was 40% off because of a flaw but I could not find the flaw. Score!
These are a few of the lovelies that came home with me. Yep, Melody Miller's typewriters. They just got it back in stock just in time for me. Then I found a bit of Heather Ross including a bit of Nursery Versery. Cute!!!!
We had a coffee at a lovely place and on the drive home, we stopped at one more fabric store and I found this....
Aneela Hoey's Christmas Washing Line fabric. I LOVE IT!
An awesome day. I even did some sewing.
