We raced into town the other day to pick up a few necessities, and somehow managed to pop into the patchwork shop. Dearie me, how come this came home with me? I know I've sworn off jellyrolls forever, but I wanted some of this Civil War Reunion, and this was the quickest way to get it.
The other jellyroll is Antique Fair, and I purchased that from an Ebay seller. It will work in very well with some other precut lines that I have, so I'm hoping that now I officially have 'enough' to be able to start a project with them.
I don't know how I feel about the precuts coming out first, and the yardage later on. Seems like the impatient ones among us are being 'made' to buy the precuts, instead of yardage. I know the answer is to just wait, but it's that whole impatience thing that we can't seem to control. In my defence, I would rather buy charm packs, but they weren't available at the places I was shopping. See previous comment about impatience.....
I'm still shifting furniture around in my living quarters, trying to find the perfect setup, and it's starting to feel very cosy and homely.
My sewing space is just about done, and all I have to do now is sort out my projects and boxes and find a permanent home for it all. I like that sort of fossicking and rummaging though, so I'm looking forward to it; I imagine I'll find a lot of things I forgot I ever had once I get into it.
I'm still cleaning up strips, and making crumb blocks, but I will have to start working on a good quilt soon, just to take advantage of all the lovely fabric in the stash. I treated myself to a few books over Christmas, including Gone To Texas, by Betsy Chutchian.
or the Ocean Waves.
I have so many fabrics for these two, just crying out to be used. Would it be wrong to start both?
