I'm not talking about football (sorry, am not a football fan), no sir-ee, I'm talking fabric. Best kind of score in my opinion.
Earlier this week I nipped out and met up with Al for lunch, advantage being there is a small patchwork shop not far from the university which I've been to before, but not in a long, long time. Best thing about this shop is they are in possession of a bargain bin...,
I got some browns,
black and greys,
yellows with a splash of turquoise,
and also some pinks and green.
Most of these pieces are roughly fat quarter sized and only cost about £1 (about $1.50) each as they're offcuts, end of roll pieces. Ideal for me as I was on the lookout for some more animal/nature colours after a large project has pretty much cleaned out my fabric stash, and as I work quite small, I don't need much. A little goes a long way which makes any patterns I design quite thrifty.
I also spotted a basket of pure wool felt on my way to the till, and couldn't resist as it is much nicer quality than I had at home. Bizarrely, later on, I had a quick look at my bloglines list and spotted this post on Treefall, I'm pretty sure it's the same stuff, can't wait to have a play with it now.
