So you see, every year we go to Plattsburgh NY for a weekend in September. One opportunity this gives me is to use my duty-free allowance on fabric shipped to the hotel. However this year, with the Canadian dollar around 0.75 to the US dollar, it’s really not worth it to buy fabric in the US when instead I could support a Canadian shop. But then I hopped onto the Connecting Threads website, and they had some FANTASTIC prices, plus 40% off notions, so I soon filled my shopping cart and had a shipment on its way for a nominal shipping amount and no customs fees.
Fortunately two of these fat quarters made their way into my Star Light, Star Dark quilt right away.
With your sharp eyes, I’m sure you noted the Helios in Ice (Anna Maria Horner) under these photos. Just because. Also I stocked up on a few notions. Finally a 6″x24″ ruler (I have a 3″x 18″ currently). Some pins, needles, marking pencils, and another quilting book (why, I don’t know, I never make entire quilts out of books. Blocks, though, yes.)
Linking up to Molli Sparkles for Sunday Stash.
