heatwave...

I am very glad this week that I am in Sydney and not Melbourne or Adelaide - I hope those of you in the southern states are coping ok with the heatwave.

Yesterday I managed to finish another angel - yay! I can't have too many more to go now.

And there is a bit of planning going on here at the moment - I am thinking pinwheels...

The fabric on the right with the tulips was a piece I bought in Melbourne over Christmas, and last Monday I found it again at Spotlight for $4 a metre, so I grabbed some more. Spotlight has another sale starting today - 30% off fabric when you buy all the remaining fabric on the roll/bolt (and it includes fabric already on sale)... thankfully I can't get to Spotlight anytime soon, I suspect I would spend a lot of money if I did!!

Hi Renee, love your angel block;
the red,white and blue will look good in a pinwheel design and right now I'd love to be in Sydney or maybe Tassie would be good because here in Vic its very very hot... happy stitching

That southern heat is on it's way to Sydney. Sigh. Your angel is delightful and your *pinwheel* fabrics are great. I'm going to try and get to Spotlight this weekend - who can pass up that kind of bargain!

Happy Stitching...Ann :)

I love your angel and the fabrics are a gorgeous combination! I really like the tulips. Looks a bit vintage.

I went to that sale at spotlight! There wasn't any fabric that wasn't more than 20 meters long on all the rolls I looked at. I swear they take them off the racks and hide them out the back until the sale is over. I did however manage to rumble out of a pile of reels that delicious raspberry and mint fabric. You know the one? The one in the set with the strawberries and blueberries? Anyway, I also picked up a few meters of chenille. Just gorgeous!

The Angel with the pram is so cute! Love the fabric choices you have made. Your pinwheels will look very patriotic in the red, white, and blue!
