Shopping In Ipswich

Today hubby and l drove down the mountain to Ipswich, to do a little shopping at the local quilt store.  "Country Quilts". We arrived after sitting in traffic for sometime as road works are still very much going on down there plus a truck broke down reducing the flow down to one shared lane for traffic going both ways. Arriving about 10.30am after leaving the house at 8.30am and dropping children at school.
 The trip was well worth the effort. The store is full of wonderful patterns, fabrics, books and the very happy and helpful shopkeeper.
 Really happy with my purchases with the help of  kk gift voucher.  Thank you ladies in Melbourne. Looking forward to the quilt show this year held by North of the Yarra Quilting Guild in Victoria. Always beautiful work to see.
 These are going to be travel tags for my luggage when l go back to Melbourne to visit my wonderful friends.
And for my trip to Phuket later in the Year for a friends daughters wedding.
 On the way home we dropped by Gatton to Sewing Creations and picked up this beautiful fabric by Anna Griffin what a great find.  Think it will look great in a Dresden plate quilt on red background.
Traffic cleared for the trip back home, arriving just in time to pick the children up after school.  So it was a full day out. Thank you to my wonderful husband and his kind heart.  He doesn't need to see the receipts.


  1. I love that Kookaburra Christmas stitchery. Looking forward to seeing it made up!!

  2. The reciepts are cheaper than therapy!
    the stitchery looks iunteresting, have fun with the paper pieced mini's.
