** Late Edit** You will all be pleased to know that I've just placed an order with Z&S Fabrics. Their sale has come at just the perfect time. Just 6 yards - which is what will fit into a Global Priority Envelope. I don't know that I'll be removing my fabric diet badge - I won't go on a big binge. Judicious sale purchasing is what is in order. Who knew that I'd become a cautionary tale ... "When good fabric diets go bad!"
No quilting going on in this house right now. I'm really dying to get back into the Sisters Choice quilt, but not just yet. My 'stash sort' has turned into a full blown 'Flylady' session in the Study/Sewing Room, and I'm in the middle of rearranging the whole room!
It's quite a large room, and it contained two desks (one is a computer desk) two bookcases, my cutting table, sewing table, a sideboard/storage thingy and the guest bed.
My goal is to get rid of one bookcase, one desk and the sideboard. With the two new closets I have been able to toss the sideboard, I'm in progess of paring down all the books into one bookcase, and then I'll be able to lose the extra desk. While I'm doing this, I'm also working thru accumulated paperwork and clutter. I've pared down my quilting magazines too, I'm going to take some to the shop tomorrow to donate to anyone who'd like them. It's a big job, but I'll really feel like I've accomplished something at the end!
And here is my latest finish. A new mitt. This is my 'car work'. I tend to spend a bit of time in the car waiting on the kids, so I always have a small project in there to work on. I finished this one up waiting for Amy after netball training. I did have to sew in the ends and finish up the thumb at home
The needles are in the car waiting for the opportunity to cast on the next one. It may be spring before it's finished though. This yarn was given to me by Maureen (the recipient of the surprise quilt). She was the person who first gave me the confidence to work on four needles and hence make socks. She's such a honey.
Well, that's it for me today. I'm shortly having a 'play date' with my friend Karen, we'll have a fun stitching afternoon with lots of chatter and laughter. Have a great day. x o x
