Today we made our annual summer visit to the Aquarium in Riverhead. They have added a butterfly/exotic bird exhibit that was really fun.
I managed to snap a picture of an Isabella Luna moth. You may be more familiar with how they look as a Wooly Bear caterpillar.
A butterfly tried to hitch hike out of the exhibit on the back of my husband's shirt.
We were able to hold a bird.
Pieceful Quilting is a great shop just down the street from the Aquarium. The ladies who work there are really friendly and helpful. I wandered through, but I only found one fabric that interested me. At $11.25 a yard, I was able to resist. I was not able to resist the fabric by the pound bin. I found two bags that were an incredible bargain at $6.95 each. They both contained several slightly less than 1/2 yard cuts, with lots of smaller pieces and some strips. This one had several cute prints including fabric from "The Hungry Caterpillar" line and a beautiful seashell print (the $11.25 fabric was from the same line). There was also a quilt block.
It was a great bargain. All of it is quality fabric and will come in handy. My only regret, is that I didn't buy another bag.
