Look at my new goodies


I decided to treat myself to some more fabric, as if I haven't been buying enough over the last year since I really caught the quilting bug. I had been forcing myself to not look at the lovey websites out there, but as I got a new job this week I thought I could justify the spending to myself.

I don't know why I feel I have to find excuses to allow myself to spend my own money! Its silly. I haven't got any dependents, I have enough to pay the mortgage and bills, don't smoke and my heavy drinking and partying days are over. Why should it matter that I want to stock up on more fabric that I will use in a decade?

I am waiting for some more goodies as well which I will share later but this pile came from http://www.quilterscloth.co.uk/ which always has offers and delivers in a day or two.

No excuse is needed to buy more fabric, it could come in handy at any moment. Good for you and I love the fabric.

Hi Shevvy, found your blog after reading your comment on Sarcastic Quilters blog. I think your work is wonderful! I agree that you don't need a reason to buy fabric.
I have a cousin that lives in Gt. Yarmouth. My family and I were in London 2 years ago and just loved it! We talk about that vacation more than any we have ever taken before! I will be following your blog and look forward to seeing your work!

You can never have enough fabric. I keep looking at the Happy Campers range and wondering if I should get some. It's calling me. Why?

Hell Yeah I'm enabling you. It serves a dual purpose of justifying my own actions.

Happy Campers is a lovely bold range - go for it!

My sewing studio looks like a mini fabric store at the moment! I agree with the others - can't ever have enough fabrics!
