Day 24 of Blogtoberfest
My husband and I went down to the Creative Festival today. Had a great time and met lots of fellow quilters. I bought a few metres of fabric to replenish my stash. The reds on the left were from Len's Mills. Gosh I love that place. It was a bit difficult to maneuver around in their section, but I did find a few nice reds. The fabrics on the right were 2.99 per metre. Not bad for backings or baby quilts. And the fat quarters in the centre were 4 for $10, more reds and a couple of light coloured batiks.
I also got a few extra things that caught my interest. A new cutting mat and a ruler with 30, 60 and 90 degree markings, some seed beads, and a ball of Rozetti Cocoon Multi. I saw something like this on Cybele's Patch. I think my daughter will like this once I have it made up into a scarf. The book looked interesting - Quilting Manhole Covers. I didn't buy it when I first spotted it. It's a book full of quilt patterns based on the manhole covers in Japan. As we were leaving I decided that I just couldn't leave it behind, so I sent my husband back to get it for me.
We took the GO train to Union Station. It is almost completely wheelchair accessible now. It was a fast and economical way to get downtown. Now that I am home I can feel my exhaustion. I need some sustenance and then a nap. And I also want to take a closer look at that book. Talk to you all tomorrow.
