Tuesday Travels

I decided to make the most of the sunshine, and venture out and explore today.

After a delicious cup of coffee and a banana and walnut muffin (fresh from the verbs kitchen) I headed out.



I’d asked my qulit making friend Mandi of www.poppyfoxathome.com where I could find great fabrics, and she pointed me to a local supplier without missing a beat.

What a cornucopia of craft supplies I stumbled into. I actually stopped in my tracks at the front door to take it all in. Wowsers!

There were hundreds and hundreds of fabrics, in more colours, patterns and textures than I had ever seen. I wandered up and down the narrow aisles, wondering where the heck to start. It was a revelation to me, as a first-time craft/fabric store visitor.

After looking at fabrics for a while, I chose these bad boys. I’m going to use them for photography backgrounds here on the blog. I may even get my iron out, so they will all be nice and crisp. As a general rule, I simply do not iron, for anyone – so that tells you how pumped I am about practicing my photography.

After extracting myself from fabric heaven, I meandered a little further afield and found a pretty spot for lunch, where I enjoyed three of life’s great pleasures; coffee, people watching and dappled light. I am mildly obsessed with dappled light, as you’re sure to see if you become a regular visitor here.

I think Tuesday Travels could become a regular occurrence, while my Tuesdays are free – I love hopping in the car, with some (or no) sense of where I’m going, and seeing where the road leads me.

As I made my way home, I saw these gorgeous houses – I love me a picket fence or pretty gate.

I hope that you too are travelling well on this sunny Tuesday.
