Despite the fact I'd been to Spotlight* just last week, I was delighted to see they were having a massive 30% off sale this week. I'd taken a couple of phone pics of fabrics while I was there (partly for a series I'm running on instagram called #patternaday) and there were a couple of prints I was kicking myself for not picking up at the time.
As you can see they were expecting me and had signs up already! I was quite restrained though, and funnily enough the fabrics I chose were quite inexpensive to start with, but it felt very satisfying to get them at two thirds the normal price. But I couldn't resist a couple of embroidery colours which were on special already from this amazing wall of thread (which is actually three times what's shown!) and some zips for my stash. These fabrics will hopefully become a top, a skirt, binding for my other baby quilt and maybe another top. The fat quarters were about $1 with the discount so I had to grab them too.
I'll show you my recent sewings tomorrow. I've been having a bit of a blitz on sewing recently and enjoying it, mostly. I'm taking my time and seeing my skills improving little by little.
*Spotlight is the massive discount fabric, yarn, craft and homewares chain in Australia. Most people have a bit of a love/hate relationship with it, though there also seems to be a consensus that we are getting better fabrics and more choice these days and it really is a one stop shop. What do you think?
