Stash building

Today I discovered Hetties Patch. It's a lovely patchwork shop near the Entertainment Centre. I'd avoided going there because 1. it's a fair drive and 2. it seemed to be very shabby-chic, which isn't my stash-style! But it's much bigger than I'd thought and has a great range; plenty of soft colours, but also some brights, plus Amy Butler, Anna Griffin, Prints Charming and Heather Bailey. Amongst other things, I got some of Heather's new Freshcut range, and I'll be going back there for fabrics for Leia's quilt.
Stash update: with this week's and last week's purchases, minus a but I've used, I estimate my stash to be about 611m. After counting it up for this , I said I'd keep track of my additions and see how long it takes to reach a kilometre of quilt fabric!
Yesterday Mummy and I took James to feed the ducks. Eleanor was there too, but slept in her pram through the whole thing. I lost count of how many times James told me "Feed ducks" through the day. As well as the pigeons (some sat on our hands stealing the bread!) there were magpies, the ducks, and 6 adorable ducklings. Joy should recognise where we were; it's right near her place, and I took James and Austy there about this time last year while she was studying!

Oooh there's DUCKLINGS there again! We walked down there last weekend and didn't see them so maybe we might have to try again tomorrow. And I might have to check out that shop!! I hadn't seen that one before, but Austy and I are off to the Entertainment centre on Saturday to watch a certain blue train in action, we were going to have to rush off afterwards for a birthday party at Gumeracha but now it's on Sunday due to rain forecasts, so I might just have to spoil myself and take a look. Austy got some clothes in the mail today and was excited thinking it was FABWIK FOR MUMMY!!!! But no, just boring clothes for him ;) so we'll go look at some fabrick while we're there I think! Good luck with your km... I may not be as far behind you as you think!
