Grandmother's garden comes to town!

This weekend Grandmother's Garden came to Otaki, an hours drive south of Palmerston North. They have a large van which they pack to the roof with all things quilting. They are traveling onto Christchurch and then Winton tomorrow. They had a lovely display of quilts, plus lots of baskets filled with quilt kits, plus tables crammed full of metres, and fat quarters. YUMMY! They had some very very nice flannels, I love using these as the backing for quilts, it adds to their being very snuggly! They also catered for hubbys, and had 2 tables with lovely table cloths, and an assortment of china tea cups and saucers and a lovely tiered cake plate with cakes!

I purchased 5 fat quarters......just because! (by now you will know that I like the little florals!!)

And then this fabric, which is really a 'must have' but not sure what I'll use it for? It has lots of birds printed on it and looks quite old.
Hope you are are managing to sneak some crafting in this weekend!

I love that bird fabric - what a find! But then I'm always attracted to fabric with words printed on it, so I'm sure that helps.
