Found UFO's that had been forgotten all about, cut scraps into manageable squares which filled my containers, and are now ready to make a scrap quilt.....yes.. one of those quilts found in those magazines that I will make...... one day.
Two resolutions made, to work one day on a current quilt being made for DD2 and the next day to work on a UFO, hopefully this will give me the mojo back to complete these projects. Also, not to purchase random pieces of fabric, yes....once again you all know what I speak of.
Random purchase syndrome or RPS s an affliction that seems to attack a lot of people when entering a fabric shop. It causes ooh's and aaah's to come out of your mouth, fingers have that itchy feeling to touch everything and the dollars just fly out of your wallet. I have suffered from this many times as my fabric stash will tell you. The temporary and only cure, as I see it, is to leave cash, credit and debit cards at home, go to the store by yourself, so you cannot borrow from a friend and bring along lots of tissues for the moisture from the drooling and tears.
These past few days have been so cold...... how cold? record breaking -26*C with a wind chill of -40*C. Have to get back to that sewing room to make more quilts, looks as if we are going to need them.
