I haven't bought too much over the last couple of weeks.
On my Friday off a couple of weeks ago, I took in soft drink cans for the deposits. And then went straight to my local quilt store, Peachtree, and spent the money on fabric related items!
I bought a metre of fusible fleece, five fat quarters from the bargain bin, the Canadian flag fat quarter, a Frixion erasable pen, and two packs of the 2 1/2 inch squares. I'll use the fleece and fat quarters to make bags. I bought a pattern from Miss Rosie's Quilt Company a while back that uses the 2 1/2 inch squares to make a mini quilt. I thought the pen would come in handy for marking lines on fabric.
Last week at work, I had a bad day. A really bad day. On my way home from work, I decided that rather than eating my way out of my bad day, I would indulge in some retail therapy. So I went to my local yarn store, Golden Willow, and announced that I needed some "I had a shitty day" sock yarn. Sharon helped me to find some very nice Berroco Ultra Alpaca fine sock yarn in a dark heather shade. The sock yarn will be used for my 14th pair of socks. I also bought two "it's getting colder" Noro Nadeshiko skeins to make myself a new cowl. The Nadeshiko is an angora/wool/silk blend. I'm thinking I might make a Gap-tastic cowl with it. My last purchase was the newest issue of Handwoven magazine.
I left the store with my "I had a shitty day" purchases feeling like the day was a little less shitty.
