More Fabric


Yesterday we had to go to Winnipeg and I had time to stop at the quilting store that is closing down. (Thanks for the hint, Donna). There was very little left on the shelves but I still managed to find a few pieces that I liked. And there are a couple of pieces that I wish I had bought. There was a bright yellow with small bananas on it that tempted me but I left it there thinking that I'd never be able to use such a bright yellow. Now I kind of wish I had picked up a bit of it. I still don't think it would be easy to use but it was sooo nice and bright...
Today we are planning another Raku firing if the rain holds off. Stay tuned for the results.

It looks like you got some good fabrics. I am partial to multicolor busy fabrics especially in the strip piecing projects. I love Raku pottery but have never had a chance to work with pottery. Is it true you can't tell what color it will come out from the glaze you choose?

A little bit of yellow/bananna print fabric in a quilt would sure make someone smile! :) Even though you left those banannas on the shelf, you managed to find some nice fabrics to bring home! What a shame that you are loosing a quilt shop in Winnipeg! :(

Just a note to let you know that I stopped by your blog for a quick visit today....and ending up reading and re-reading many months worth! Your free-spirited approach to quilting, dyeing, raku firing...you name it!...is an absolute delight. I'll be back more frequently from now on!!

Those fabrics were a good buy. Very colourful, just the right thing to bring some life in other duller fabrics. Take care.

I expect to be down that direction next week if you'd like me to stop and try to pick up some of the yellow for you....

Loved your nice new fabrics! Look forward to seeing them again, in some project. And look forward to seeing the Raku firing results also.
