Visiting my favourite place

After a long time - well it seemed like a long time to me - I went to the quilt shop on Tuesday. It was wonderful. All the new fabrics, new patterns to buy fabric for and just the overall atmosphere formed a very gratifying experience. I went there with my sister, who luckily is just as addicted as I am.

I needed to go to the shop in order to get some new fabrics for my pillow swap (sorry no picture of those). But frankly, any excuse will do. I also needed a new spool of thread for sewing my new mystery quilt. In the shop I found out I needed to buy some more fabric for the small quilt included in the mystery. My sister needed fabric for the same project. It was a great excuse to look through all the fabrics and notions available at the Quilterij. Needless to say we had a wonderful time doing so.

Tamzin kept a straight face during the constant lengthening of my list. She understands as she not only works in the shop but is also a gifted quilter herself. To make the experience even more pleasurable she packed the fabrics (and thread, of course) in a nice little silver box.
It just lifts my heart looking at these beauties.
With our bags full of fabric we went back home again. Full of contentment and looking forward to the projects that can now take shape for real! How much pleasure can one person have?
I wish you all a day full of pleasure!

More tomorrow.
