Friday night, we went to the Creativ Festival and I was thrilled. I managed to get exactly what I was looking for — a new Quilter’s Cut ‘n Press. My old one had finally got to the point of no return and it was time. I use the Cut ‘n Press constantly as it’s the perfect size for pressing a block or two or pressing fabric to freezer paper and doesn’t necessitate dragging out the ironing board and then putting it away.
I also stocked up on the heirloom cotton thread I love to use for hand piecing and found 2 more florals for the Pickled Ladies as well as a pink FQ that just had to come home with me because it was — well, pink! I don’t think I could ever have too much pink.
There was a white on white fabric that also came home with me but didn’t get photographed, as it’s rather hard to show the design in a white on white. It’s one I’ve used before that has a lovely soft feel to it and is not hard to needle. All in all, I’m thrilled with what I found at the show although I wouldn’t have minded a few more florals. There were lots of quilting booths with lots of fabrics and bundles but they seemed, for the most part, to be more of the earth tones and the like with very few florals to be seen. I wonder if that’s a product of the time of year and if at the spring show there will be more light-coloured and floral fabrics.
Lester continues to do well. Today is his last day on the antibiotics so I guess the next few days will tell the tale as to whether the infection is gone.
