Quilt & Online Shopping...

A girl can only go for so long without needing some fun and shopping therapy...I tried to resist , really I did!

One of the ladies at guild a couple of weeks ago was working on this gorgeous stitchery "Petticoats and Posies" by Brenda look at it and that was it, I loved it and just had to buy it. It's everything I love...crinoline ladies, old fashioned parasols, bustier, fans etc...all this and made up into a quilt with rose romantic!
I was so happy to see that some of the threads needed, I already had...gorgeous variegated threads by Needle Necessities....can't wait to start stitching it, but first I must do a bit more on my layer cake quilt!
On the design floor...more blocks done and auditioning position. Hopefully I can get a good days sewing done on it today...
Take care, and have a lovely weekend.....♥
