First up... I'm not injured!
Second up... it was just the fabric diet that hit a speed bump, not the "not starting new projects" diet.
So how did this all come about? Well, my favourite little patchwork shop in Maungatapere The Country Yard celebrated their 10th birthday over the weekend. I decided to just enjoy myself and buy some fabrics that I liked - for the simple fact that I liked them. I had a wonderful time chatting and catching up with friends, eating some yummo food... drinking half a glass of wine and saying virgin instead of version... and stroking and collecting some yummo fabrics. There was a whole new project that I was super tempted to buy... but I did show some restraint, and left that one on the shelf.
|It all started with this collection, most of which have nothing on the selvedge of my fat quarters, but at least some of them say Daiwabo for EE Schenck Company|
|Across the room I discovered these fabrics by Anni Downs of Hatched & Patched. Although there were more... I carefully selected my absolute favourites.|
|These cream/off white tone on tones are being auditioned to fill gaps in my Tillie's Lane BOM (the larger sprigged design was a just had to have).|
I finished my secret project and took secret photos on Saturday, all ready to email off to the relevant party on Sunday. Whew. Mission accomplished.
The Robot quilt got it's borders attached and backing fabric sewn. This afternoons session was spent basting and now I'm all ready to start quilting on Wednesday.
