On facebook a friend told me that her Spotlight had dressmaking and quilting fabrics reduced to $2 a metre, so I went out today to see if my local had the specials too, They did! All their orange sticker fabric are $2 a metre. This is the lot that I bought, Some oddments but most of them are 3 metres of each. I spent a whopping $195 and when I got home I added up the original prices and that would have set me back $881 saving a total of $686. Now that is a good shop!
That is not the best bit though! Chatting with other customers in the queue I was able to hug a mum of an Aussie Hero quilt recipient, I gave her 2 hugs, one for her and one for her daughter. The quilts mean so much to them.
We have a new washing machine! After so many years of having a top loader that did nothing except for spin and everything having to be washed by hand, the spinner just stopped working, Had someone come out and tell us that it would not be worth fixing we browsed the internet, chose our model, went to the Good Guys last night and bought one. It got delivered today and fitted and the old one taken away. Happy days indeed!
