Around lunchtime we popped into a cheese shop to taste samples, and came away with a delicious hunk of Dutch Gouda and some salami. We brought it with us into a wine tasting room to rest our feet and drink Mimosas. We ended up Champagne tasting, and hung out there for quite a while (hiccup). Never did make it to the craft street.
Anyway, I bought those pastel colored pickle dishes, (I want to make a pickle dish quilt
It's been on my bucket list for a while now), a pink 40's apron, and two small curtain panels of navy and white which will eventually find their way into a quilt. Speaking of buckets, isn't that little woven bucket bag cute? That was the first thing I bought, and I carried it around proudly the entire time, loading it up with my goodies. I plan on lining it with some calico and using it for a sewing basket.
I also bought the colorful rag rug in the second picture. It was calling to me, or maybe that was the champagne?
And yes, there is a pile of yarn in the picture above. I've started a big bright ripple. There are so many colors picked out for this thing, it might get ugly. Hand quilting a mini is also in the works, so I'm definitely not bored at the moment.
