Two things happened at Spotlight

1. The customer standing next to me at the fabric counter had her two young sons in tow. One was very excited to tell the lady behind the counter about how their school had been in lockdown that day, due to two rogue Kangaroo’s stuck in the school yard, smashing things. This amused me immensely. Perhaps it wouldn’t have been quite so amusing if I had been a teacher at that school, but from the outside, hilarious!

2. I purchased 1.2 metres of mink fabric, and the lady serving me kindly asked what I was planning to use it for. ‘Backing on a quilt’, I explained, and the customer standing next to me then piped in with how difficult that would be to sew, and how she wouldn’t be doing that. Of course, this just bolstered my resolve.

I took my mink home, washed it, laid out the quilt top, taped it to the ground, sprayed it with basting spray, placed the mink on top, and used almost every pin I owned to secure it together. I slowly and carefully quilted it, and what do you know, it worked!

Lesson learned: Don’t let anyone tell you what you can and can’t do. Where there’s a will, there’s a way 🙂
