The Basket









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!

Visiting a quilt store is my favorite thing to do when I have a little free time. Of course I can't leave without finding a treasure or two to take home. The basket looks like fun.

Great basket! Yay for you!

And rare is the visit to the quilt shop where I leave empty-handed. I think once is the only time I've managed it.
