Fun in my fabric world....

Chased by a chook?

Well, I have had a good laugh with all of the suggestions about what may have happened...
BUT sadly only Nicky was nearly right!
BUT I was most impressed with Deb's comment who thought that Chooky might have chased us across the Bridge for one last goodbye...wouldn't we ALL like to see that!!!!!!
The peak hour traffic would have been in awe of our very own fabric olympian sprinting plodding through the traffic singing out ..."bye...miss you guys"...might have even made the traffic report!
Yup, would love to see that! But I also was highly amused by Heather and her streaker or Paulette and her hunky good samaritan! You are an amazing group of women with vivid (and disturbing) imaginations!
What really happened was a bingle, fender-bender or slight bump...OOPS!
In evading a lane-changing, beautifully new and stylishly black Mercedes, contact was made between us and a Subaru...no injuries, but we met a lovely fellow and after taking some pics of the damage and swapping info we continued home!
So dear Deb...you win a little treat...send me the address of your little frog cottage as I think I a fretting Chooky would have caused a massive accident!
Back to the Show! At Janet's request ("show us ya loot!")...here are my fabric purchases...to add to my stash and fill some colour deficiencies such as brown, purple and aqua!
I also bought this sweet wool felt kit from the very nice Marg Low...I made her covered coathangers ages ago...she has great patterns and is really nice too!
 Her stand was great and so was Jan that worked on the stall with Marg. 
It was a fun time!

Glad it was only a minor bingle and no one was hurt (or shopping damaged!). Love checking out everyone's purchases. Marg Low's stand was very impressive.

What a shame it was an accident and not some of the other wonderful ideas the girls came up with. Love your purchases.... I have Margs gorgeous little wool felt needle case too. So much fun...

lol........thinking what have I done???? had to go back and read all the funny comments.......and yes I do hate to say goodbye.......glad you're all ok.........

Nicky said...

Close, but not close enough! Glad to hear no serious harm done, though it would have been funny to see Deb's theory coming to fruition!!

Chocolate Cat said...

love your loot! I have that pattern but not the kit. Must make it one day soon!!!! Looks like you had a lovely time, glad the bingle wasnt any worse.....my imagination is giggling at the thought of Chooky sprinting over the bridge!!!

Janet said...

There were some funny imaginative ideas there, how funny but not the bingle. Glad you're all ok and that the guy was nice.
Love the loot, especially the bee fabric and Marg had a great stall.
