With no plans this weekend we hit the parks...

Wythenshawe Park is fairly local to us, it had a beautiful historic hall that I took some pictures of because I would love to create a quilt pattern based on some of the shapes.

Those flowers were huge!

Then on Sunday we went to the stunning Yorkshire Sculpture Park. One of our favourite places to visit and this time we saw Poppies: Wave by artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper; Bob and Roberta Smith: Art For All and Rob Ryan: Listen to the World amongst many more fabulous artists throughout the park.

I also got some wonderful stash additions this week. The incredibly kind Molli Sparkles sent me a package after I won his giveaway and some extra florals, which he knows I love ;) I'm in Liberty heaven and have never owned pieces this big! Liberty EPP plans are afoot!

And a couple of places had New Look pattern sales recently so I took the first step in my dressmaking journey and bought some:

I try to take advantage of sales when I can!

Speaking of... 

Green Fairy Quilts have a Labor Day sale on (which ends tonight so hurry!), use the code LABOR at checkout for HUGE savings on already great prices across the store! These are just some of their gorgeous new arrivals:

Fat Quarter Shop is also having a brilliant sale, with 20% off all Layer Cakes!

Check out their newest Shortcut Quilt, Star Cakes. A free pattern that uses one print Layer Cake and one solid Layer Cake!

The week feels like it's off to a good start, maybe it was all that fresh air at the weekend, I'm feeling exuberant and am tackling my to do list with fury! Let's hope I can keep it up because it's a pretty long list ;)

  1. You have chosen some great patterns there Lucy! And those fabrics.....ah! Just delightful! I guess you will being just drooling over them for a while......

  2. OMG, serious fabric envy - you got the Liberty Tana Lawn I wanted (middle one with triangles) - do you know what it is called? Lucky you!

  3. Congrats on the win - and WHAT a win - fabulous!! Have fun sewing the clothes. I love the blouse one - very chic.

  4. Oh my, I'm glad you won Lucy. If I couldn't win, I'm glad you did! Love the Bob and Roberta Smith art piece, fantastic art memory for your children to have. And ... the dressmaking... can't wait to see. I have tried and failed and said I'm trying no more and all of a sudden I finished a skirt that worked.

  5. Beautiful fabrics, i am very jealous of your Liberty pieces. x
