Home sick with a barking cough, my head and body aches and I have fevers with shivers, but Dr assures me it is viral so no antibiotics.
Think he's wrong but it's only my body and brain so what do I know ha!
I wrote the post below on Monday evening and intended to take pics of what I'd bought at the show, but for the life of me, I cant find the bag of purchases, having tidied it away on sunday morning! So if I ever find it, the pictures will be posted later - unless Ive been burgled for my show purchases - or imagined buying them!
Is this how Alzheimers starts????
Naturally, it wasn't all my fault, the buying of more fabric, Jean was partly to blame since she pointed out the batik fat quarters reduced to £20 a roll of 10, within 20 minutes of us being in the NEC show hall ! Calls herself my friend too!
....and I couldn't decide which colour batch to buy,
so I then HAD to buy two rolls.......cough - cough, right?
My soupcon hexi star shapes are going to be all batiks after all.
The idea that this year I would make a big reduction in my fabric stash by actually USING it, well yes that is happening ( too slowly mind you).
But have you noticed, you never have the colour or pattern NECESSARY, to complete a project your making, to use up your stash?
You are always short of at least that one extra fabric to successfully complete what your making - right?
So that's why I HAD to buy the white on white fabrics, to applique the hexi BOM 2014 blocks and the hexi stars on to, so they were justified purchases, right?
Of course the fact that I bought a circular knitting needle, size 25 to knit a poufe with and an enormous similarly sized crochet hook too, to crochet fabrics with - well I can't think of anyone else to blame for that,
so I must own up to that!
Oh hang on, I could blame the lady selling them, Ingrid Wagner, yes its her fault I bought those then.
I also bought a natty tool called a Spider Tool ......... the link below shows how you use it. I can see circular bowls, wristlets and outlining for rug making when I get round to using it.
Okay back to looking for my bag of purchases!
