We didn't have a great deal of time for shopping during our visit to Auckland.
But I did insist on a visit to Cushla's Village Fabrics while we were there.
I spent quite a bit of time browsing the store and talking with the ladies.
My hubby even joined in and asked a few sewing machine related questions!
After much deliberation and contemplation, I came away with two small kits.
I couldn't resist this table runner. The colours are soooo much better in real life.
I think I need to play about with the camera settings, as the colours on the front of this bag kit are somewhat awry too!
So I really was well behaved wasn't I?
After our flight into Christchurch we had a 2 hour drive to Timaru.
What better place for a rest break than Ashburton?
Annies Country crafts is very, very close to a car sales yard.
Something for me, and something for him.
We were both amazed to discover that I had finished first and once again had restrained myself coming away with another small package.
And a very pretty end of bolt!
There is just over a skinny quarter.
There have been extra shifts at work and all manner of other things going on here, but I did manage to get some time quilting my SSCS gift, I also spent a little time unquilting some of it too!
Never mind, I'm happy with it now and it is waiting for it's binding.
Then, onto the next secret project!
