- I'm still completing my Spinning Certificate requirements;
- I'm dreaming of some weaving I'd like to do;
- I'm planning my next Patchwork by Machine class;
- I'm dyeing a batch of yarns for myself;
- . . . oh, and then there's the housework, but we won't talk about that!
I made a trip to Spotlight yesterday. I do normally try to support the independent local stores, but it was nearly 5 pm on a Saturday and I'd run out of bobbins for measuring and presenting my yarn samples. That's a major task for today, so off I went. The bobbins were only a few dollars for 100 and they had both cardboard and plastic--it's been a while since I've seen the cardboard ones, so I bought a pack of each. A few more dollars for a magnetic seam guide--we were talking about options for accurate stitching in class last week, so here's a chance to try it out. My spending was still under the $10 mark and I was heading for the checkouts when I saw the Quilting Cotton clearance rack . . . uh oh!
1 metre of the large floral fabric, 1 metre of the gold fabric (on the far left) and 30 cm of each of the others. Why? Because they caught my eye, were half price and are a great demonstration of a fabric range with built in colour choices to show my class. And I've decided I don't even need to wash and iron them before I teach on Wednesday night. They will tell their story beautifully just the way they are.
