No, not the fabric (then again, really, it's pretty scrumptious fabric!), but how I acquired it. We spent the last weekend in February in Auckland as wee celebration of D's unbirthday (leap year baby) and along with a trip to the zoo, to Kelly Tarlton's, much cafe and deli traipsing and some wandering around, we managed to squeeze in a trip to the Auckland branch of my textile spiritual home, Global Fabrics. Yum! And my delicious husband patiently waited (and ran interference with Cole and Imogen once the novelty of a giant fabric warehouse wore off) whilst I collected and purchased this stash of scrummy. And some cashmere for scarves. And a little merino knit. I have grand plans. And this was all on his *birthday* day as well. And he hadn't even had a coffee yet - those of you who know D will appreciate the magnitude of this...he would mainline beans if he could!
So yes, true love indeed. And I'm sure the fact that he was about to get some alone time in an enormous drum store had no bearing on his patience at all....he came home with a splash*.
*a type of cymbal for his kit.
Meanwhile, I have a quilt in the dryer that I can't wait to share!
