Oh my! Fabric by the bolt?!

Precious little to report as my 'no time for sewing' phase continues, exacerbated by end of financial year tasks, the start of school holidays & the sudden (and wonderful!) company of three busy children.One solitary little Dear Baby Jane block to show. This is K11 Columbine. I am many blocks behind the progress of the group, but remain determined to catch up again soon!After all, I can't throw in the towel on Dear Baby Jane now - an ENTIRE BOLT (!!!) of Kona Snow arrived during the week for the background. I'd say I'm well & truly committed now! In an attempt to calm the 'sewing withdrawal' jitters, I am leaving bundles of loveliness all about the house so that I can stroke them lovingly as I hustle past on my way to the next should-have-been-done-yesterday task. Desperate times!

  6. I love the fabrics you have chosen for your DJ blocks, they are just lovely! And an entire bolt is a dream!! I did not know one could order it, do you get a discount?

  7. Oh, look at all that fabric loveliness! Your DJ quilt is going to be gorgeous. It's good to know that I'm not the only one that likes to leave some fabrics out for enjoying - it does seem to help to settle sewing withdrawl symptoms ;o)

  9. I like the idea of leaving 'bundles of loveliness' around to enjoy. The fabrics in your photo are divine. Is the whole bolt for the Dear Jane background? That's amazing.

  10. God bless you! I was giggling, but now am laughing my self silly. I love, love, LOVE your writings and your sense of humor. How many times have I said to myself "At least I can touch it [fabric] once in a while to calm my nerves!" Yes, just being able to see and feel fabric periodically soothes the savage beast in me. Would prefer to be making something but it seems I do what I can when I can. Yes, I also gently rummage through my bags and boxes of fabric while deciding what I want to do with it. This time I think I will make... Hmm, well something when I am finished with all the other stuff needing to be done. Fabric is just as addicting as narcotics but oh so much less harmful! Also if I am stroking fabric I am not eating!
