I got the basket Saturday from the quilt store and it was well worth the drive. I found out the number of spools was 1113, and I had guessed 1111. My daughter's reward for having a great favourite number, was getting some buttons. It's a great store, and of course I had to look around for a bit.
They were selling the laminate fabric I have heard and seen so much about so I got some of that.
They also had some great watermelon pincushions on display so I got a kit to make those too. It is really hard to go into a quilt store and not want to buy everything. Now, as always I need to find the time to make these things!
