The fabric I ordered from Hancocks on the 21st of last month has arrived. I still feel some guilt about this fabric when it comes to my fabric diet, but I ordered it before I knew about the diet ... so I'll make sure this is the only new fabric I touch this month!
The three fabrics on the right are destined for my entry in the guild show this year. I've sent my entry into the competition, I'll be making a miniature quilt, a very non-traditional baltimore style quilt. It has to have a maximum diameter of 80 inches. Mine will be about 19 inches square.
The two fabrics on the left are 'justin' fabrics ... as in 'just in case'. The Sturbridge II fabric was closing out at $1.99 per half yard, so of course I had to get some. I've got a pile of Sturbridge II put aside for a quilt called Scrap Tease. This one will add a little more flavour to it. The top fabric on the left is a background I thought would be useful. I have a gap in my stash where backgrounds are concerned, so it's a little stash enhancement.
Lastly, I purchased the Miss Rosie book. I really like the Miss Rosie patterns, so thought I'd get the book. It will be a great one to use up some of the scraps. I love scrap quilting!
Today my brother in law is coming over to help me out with the very last of the painting. By the end of today there will be no more painting to do! Is it possible?? My BIL has recently finished up at work, and come back home before he heads overseas, so he's at a loose end during the day. How wonderful for him to help me out. He will be very useful when moving heavy furniture!
