Re: Trip to LQS...

Sounds like a great way to spend the day! :) Wonder if I can wangle one like that for the 17th? Hm... (BEG here!)

Ah, sounds like a wonderful day. I was smiling and nodding until I got to the lemon meringue ice cream part and then my jaw dropped and I started to drool. A fun and tasty day!

Suzie, your day sounded heavenly! One little thing grabbed my attention, tho; " A FQ of celtic-printed fabric"! Oh my! I NEED details on this one! That would be worth a trade of some different flavors of M&Ms!!
Vickie in Cleveland, popping my head around the corner, still trying to catch up!

Well, yeah, the celtic-printed fabric sounds pretty good, Vickie, but I need details on the " metre of wacky striped fabric which will be fabulous as a cheating border". Details, Suzie...we need details!
Dee in LeRoy, NY ( stripes..they're a good thing...even better if they're wacky)

or ID#112-77403its on the second row from the bottom, the left-hand stripe I think,in this light its difficult to tell, but its one of them anyway! The celtic fabric is proving more difficult to trace, its selvedge says "The Celtic Range. Designed by The Woodrow Studio London England." It may say more but that's as far as my FQ selvedge goes...
Its basically a sort-of darkish/paleish blue colour with smallish multi-coloured square and rectangular celtic designs printed all over it - knotwork, mandalas, borders, all printed in reds, blues, yellows & greens... not a very good description but I've just spent 30 minutes trawling the internet trying to find a photo of it with no luck - if you want I can try scanning it in or photographing it and bunging it on my webshots site.
But not tonite - we've just got back from a friends BBQ where I had almost too much to drink and as its midnight here I'm going to bed...
