C and I planned a girl's day out yesterday. I got off on a rough start since warm water supply was turned of at my house. Meaning I had a choice between an icy cold shower or put the kettle on so at least I could wash my hair more or less comfortably. The rest of me got, well, a wakeup call.
We packed a survivalkit with extra water, a blanky, crackers, extra mittens and such for weatherforcasts spoke of snow and rain and ice, in that order. Someone on the intenet suggested we should also pack a loaded gun in case one got stuck in a blizzard (seriously?), but we had none available so we declined on that.
We went to a rather large needlecraft market, a 1 1/2 hour's drive. We first headed to the coffee and treats corner there. C decided it was a good idea to toss her cappucino all over the table but from that moment on, all went well.
Lots of yarn, felting supplies, embroiderystalls and ofcourse fabric and quilts..C couldn't control herself when she saw new Kaffe Fasset fabrics. I was on the hunt for solids, but there were NONE!
What I did see was this, in a corner of a stall
With lots of selfcontrol, only got some ribbons and this
which ,hopefully helps increasing accuracy in machine piecing.
We also saw a hilarious knitting book
There even was a cardboard, ready to cut, template to make your own Royal Palace balcony...
When we went home, it was allready snowing, but we didn't need our survivalbag, nor that loaded gun..
On the way home we stopped for pizza and the pizzaguy gave us both a rose. Ahh...
After all it was Valentine's day.Pam's blog, showing blocks with hearts.
It will probably be finished just in time for Valentine 2014, but that doesn't matter as long as I'm enjoying the process!
Hope you all had a nice day too!
