Blogtoberfest - Day 27 (catch-up) - Online Shopaholic!

The weather around here has been beautiful the last few days so since it coincided with my days home with the kids we've been out of the house and playing with friends rather than home trying to fill our time (so apologies for missing a couple of days - will try and catchup on posts before the end of Blogtober!).

I discovered Heather Bailey's blog the other day and fell in love with her turtle pin cushions (after my wrist pin cushion not really cutting it when I was handsewing the binding to my cot quilt). Of course, I had to buy the pattern, and if I was paying the postage then I might as well get some fabric - especially with the Aussie dollar looking pretty good against the greenback at the moment!!
And then I was reading Red Pepper Quilts - where Rita used some Kei Honeycomb Dots to bind her blue and brown baby quilt. I'm totally addicted to dotty fabrics, did an etsy search, found lots and these are winging their way to me too!
I have a few quilting projects rattling around in my head - maybe that should be the subject of my next post...

Looking forward to seeing how your pin cushion turns out... how sweet is that pattern. The heather bailey fabrics are to die for.
