Pre holidays... I had a couple of weak moments. You know the ones... "this item on your wish list is on special..." or guess what, one of your fav shops has a special on top of a special... but it was OK, because the fabric diet was *almost* over, and it was going to be school holidays, when I desperately need new reading material, new material, or just anything new. The weather was appalling... perfect for curling up with new books or for playing with new project ideas.
BUT it just didn't work out that way. The books arrived in unsatisfying dribs and drabs... with the fabric and the last few books coming just a day before school and work started back. Grrr.
So a round up of online international purchases... drum roll please...
First up... the books. Book Depository is my friend. Not necessarily my Visa's friend.
Key words: Bright, Applique, Fun.

Fabric... when life gives you bundles on special... Pink Castle Fabrics is my friend too.
Savannah - love the bright (but not too bright) citrus colours and the slightly retro feel...
Color Love by Nancy Rink. This one is a little more out of my comfort zone - look people, Pink! and Navy! I love the feature floral, and I'm sure the others will grow on me. One of the joys of buying a bundle. I'll have to try taking a better photo...
And a few odds n ends... including more of that feature floral. Which I love. Did I mention that?
I'm still feeling unsatisfied. I think I over-anticipated how great/perfect it was all going to be/feel. Does that ever happen to you?
I'm also sick, and have just had the first day back at work after the holidays. Some things just suck.
