Ok I did buy fabric....

Well Black Friday arrived, I was ready at C&T for their 30% off sale,

and this

oh and this jumped into my cart, 30% off and all in ebook form, so no shipping charges... They are going to go on a usb key and DH is keeping it safe for Father Christmas so I can't peak.

Have to say it's quite a complicated download procedure and you have to use Adobe digital which meant I had to install software using windows, which I don't tend to use much....

This was a much easier purchase and was 50% off from Martingale, I have read through this one and there are quite a few quilts I can see in my future, especially as I've made quite a few without borders lately.

Went shopping with my DH and had to go in Fabric shop, I bought some machine needles, some fleece to practise my FMQ on the frame with (see the books lol) and saw this lovely fabric, it's got wool interwoven on and immediately I thought ohhh an infinity scarf but it was 16E a metre !!! luckily I only needed 30cm.

The finished article, (after massive machine problems again (sigh)) and I'm quite sad it's warmed up here and it's too hot to wear it lol :)

Then I went shopping for my Christmas present Fabric.com was calling to me and I managed to get 16 yards of fleece, 4 rolls of Aurifil, pins, marking pencil and for just £70, should keep me going for quite some time (fingers crossed custom's doesn't get me) DH is taking charge of it when it arrives so that I cannot possibly open it before Noel ....

Love Black Friday, the only things I'd like to try now is those clover wonder clips and perhaps a rotating cutting mat, if anyone see's any specials on cyber monday please let me know.

Happy Saturday evening, I'm watching Strictly, Merlin, Casualty and I'm a celebrity lol, action packed evening eh
