Purchases and spool collection

My visit  to the Home Patch store in Bathurst was a highlight of our trip to Orange.  I was tempted to buy more, but with limited time came small purchases.

The coloured buttons in the front are to give to my home quilting group friends.  They are so beautiful - and I couldnt resist buying them.   One piece of fabric is for a project coming up, and the others are "just because" ones.
 I found the spools there as I was leaving, so they had to come with me to add to my small but growing collection of old or interesting spools and reels.
From Bathurst we then headed to Sydney and I was able to have a bit of time with our second youngest Grandson, Sammy.  We dont see him very often at this stage.
Such a cute little one.

He is very cute - lovely purchases and I can see why those buttons had to come home with you....

Marilyn, I took the home patch link. It looks beautiful, and they have some interesting stuff. Sammy is extra cute.
