Never Too Much Fabric

Yesterday, I went with my quilt group on a bus trip to Hervey Bay and Howard. It was a fun day with a lovely bunch of ladies. The first shop we visited was called Dewdrop Inn Patchwork & Craft. This vast store has a huge variety of fabrics and notions.

Linda (from Dewdrop Inn) showed us some new products and a demo. (And provided the group with a welcome morning tea).
After shopping for our fabric fix at the Dewdrop Inn, we had a picnic lunch in a nearby park beside the Bay.
Next stop, a little country town called Howard. Here the owners have two stores, a Drapery, and a patchwork fabric store, which is in an old bakery building across the road.
Lots of fabrics and bargains to be had there. Also a beautiful afternoon tea - Devonshire scones and tea/coffee. Yumm!

A few of the fabrics I bought.

I haven't any projects in mind for these fabrics yet....just adding to my collection, as you do!
Happy Stitching,

My husband just doesn't seem to understand the buying without knowing what it's for way of things.
