Shoppping and shenanighans
Today at least the shopping involved some fabric. We ended up at the Crate and Barrel outlet store where they have gorgeous Marimekko 100% cotton fabric from Finland, 54 inches wide for 6.00 a yard! Yes, that's all.
If it doesn't go well then I have ten gorgeous yards to do something else with.
I also bought this 5 yard piece of all these gorgeous values of yellow. I love it.
Emily approved of it as well.
I am hoping to use it to make drapes and maybe other fun stuff for a nursery.
Hopefully, this will be needed mid December as Emily is due with "Tough Cookie" on December 16th. It's a bit on the quiet side now.
It is hard for us to choose to trust happiness but we are trying! Fingers crossed for Tough cookie to make it here safely.
A very good friend of Emily's is getting married in October and Emily is in the wedding.
This friend is having a shower in July and so I thought I would make an apron for Emily to put with her gift to Bridget.
That's all for today from the naughty quilter.
