I love this time of year - a few days holiday, no rushing around, time to read a book, iron everything in the ironing basket (using the new iron bought in the sales - it is trimmed with red so must go faster) while watching a movie, finish off some stitching that was started ages ago
Stitch another "Sweet Pea" block while watching tv
And start a new quilt. I know I shouldn't because the half-finished pile is growing. Earlier in the year I started buying/hoarding Patisserie fabrics and have been wanting to make a Whirligig quilt for a very long time, so I cut into a couple of charm packs and cut extra blocks from some of the yardage. Love the colours in these fabrics!
Months ago I saw something on Bec's blog about a "fabric diet" and, although we didn't officially sign up, Diann and I have not bought any fabric for the last few months. A couple of interventions have been required but we are managing to keep strong. No time limit has been set for this diet - I think I have enough in the cupboards to keep me busy for a little while.
