My holiday gift!!!!

You cannot in my books go on a holiday without buying yourself a little gift. My hubby and I went to the Grampians for 8 nights and we had a wonderful time. While we were visiting that area of Victoria we went for a drive to Stawell and you can imagine how excited I was when I came across a lovely little craft shop. So while I ventured inside hubby stayed in the car and I had a ball.

I bought myself this lovely quilt pattern. It measures 20 1/2" x 24 1/2" so it should look great hanging on a wall. Now you cannot buy yourself a gift that is missing pieces so I bought fabric and lace to complete the quilt when I got home. Now to find the time to do it!!!

Here are 3 pieces of fabric (bought on our holidays) that I just had to have. I'm collecting pansy print fabric and as yet I don't know what I am going to do with it, but I know one day a pattern of some sort will jump out and bite me and I will be ready with pansy fabric waiting for me in Skinny cupboard.
So far I have 3 pansy fabrics and hope to get another 2. I keep a little piece of each in my bag at all times so that when I am visiting a town and I hear a quilting shop call out to me, I know exactly what I have home and don't buy more of the same.

As for the other 2 beautiful pieces of fabric in the photo, well I love floral fabric and how could I buy their friend 'Pansy' and not buy them and give them a good home too!
