More fabric ;)

The other part of the luggage arrived, hurray!

Beside the dirty clothes and bath slippers and jars and boxes and bottles of Porto wine, there was also my green bag of first shopping stop at Arco-Iris a Metro in Lisbon, Portugal.

Some (more) fabric:

Some (even more) thread:

aaaaaand.... some felt :))

After all, Easter is knocking at the door, isn't it? And I don't want to start running again for raw material, I just want to sit on my table and make the design and then just plain execute the thing ...

One other thing I should mention: the lady in the shop was very friendly and helpful. She even threw in some extra fabric when I was done shopping, and she even said she could send orders by mail, so it seems like a good future relation.

p.s. great photos from non-patch visitis here!

Polka dots? Yeeeeessssssssssssssss!!!

I've been drooling over polka dots since a long time now, but couldn't get my hands on them so far. With the family trip we had for holidays, I've been eager to check on the local patchwork market. This time, precious Cosman was not of help, I plan to inform him as well about my finding, so he may add the shop to his list.

But, stubborn as I am, I started reading blogs and reviews, so this way I've stumbled upon this wonderful shop: Arco-Iris a Metro. I've been there twice: once on our way in, and once on our way back. (Since we spent most of our vacation in southern Portugal, and this shop was almost in Lisbon, I couldn't get there more times, luckily for our finances :)) )

Today, I show you the result of the second shopping session: polka dots and (some) quilting thread.

The rest is still on the way, since we could benefit of a friends car that brought most of our luggage back in the country. He didn't arrive yet, but is close, so you will see those things soon.

I'm back in action :)

After a long vacation in Portugal (more here today, tomorrow and the days to come), I'm back in my nest.
I've had some Christmas items I wanted to share, but couldn't do so before departure, so here you can see them now:

I also have some patching stories from the trip, so check back for that too!

Have a great Sunday!
