An Outing to Textile Traders

A grey rainy day here today but that didn't stop Ad and I shopping up a storm! All children where at school or Day Care so we were off to check out the new Textile Traders Supa Store a 30 minute drive down the highway. And what a day to pick to go as all their patchwork fabrics were 50% off, yes all of them! So we were picking bolts of fabric and making piles of what we wanted, wrecking their display, eyeing off other customers fabric to add to the pile after they had purchased! Lots of fun. I was buying with no particular project in mind, just to stock up the stash! Here's my goodies!

Me oh My, I wanna TT near me (insert sobbing smiley here)

Great photo - had to laugh that they have baskets for you to use - there must me some people that just buy buttons LOL. You will have to tel them that they need to open a web stre (and I now know why there are so many sellers over in the West selling patchwork fabrics - they must be making a fortune reselling the goodies)
