Thank you for all the comments on my last post. I really loved reading through them all, and thank you to Krista for talking me through setting up the comments thingy so I can reply to them via email. Yay. Now there's no escaping me - I'll email you as well as waffling on here (unless you have a no-reply address, then I can't...but I have been sending lots of emails to email@example.com. I wonder if anyone reads them?) Note to self - check first before pressing send.
Life here in Monkey Towers is hectic at the minute. I've got a lot of Fat Quarterly stuff and other bits to get done this week, so I've been doing less sewing and more computer stuff. You can tell my brain doesn't get used as much as it used to - I look like I've been up for the past week and not had a wink's sleep. Not a good look. Countdown to my trip to Market - this time next week I'll be on a plane, on my way. Eek! If I can find wi-fi I'll be tweeting. If I get a chance I'll blog too. If you are on twitter - I'm @ImAGingerMonkey. Come say hi. Mostly I say nothing of any note at all, but it's nice to chat, I think.
So, I've got about 3 million things to get crossed off my list before I go. One of them is getting my fabrics sorted for the quilting bee I'm in. Scrap Vomit part deux is underway. I've had 8 'A' blocks arrive so far (thank you to Fiona, Audrey and Rachel) and I'm getting my bee peeps to make 'B' blocks - the ones with the diamond shaped rings. Muchos excitement was had (by me, alone in the house) this morning as I cut the fabrics, sorted through my scraps and bagged up the packages. Next stop - post office.
I know the blogosphere is full of pics of this stuff, but I've got some now so I'm going to show you anyway. Denyse Schmidt fabrics for Joann's. I'm really happily surprised by the quality and the colours and, well, all of it, actually. It's great. Happy happy me. And thanks to the quilt dude for picking it up for me xxxx. I noticed there are plenty of etsy sellers stocking it - I've bought the other colourway from here.
The husbeast informed me last night that his salary is getting cut because of the recession. It's a pretty hefty cut too, and means things will be incredibly tight. But I always like to look on the bright side - now I am actually physically banned from buying fabric I'll be better with stashpact, won't I? And it may encourage me to get into that fabric closet and see what treats lurk behind the doors. Anyone fancy coming round and helping sort through my fabric? Like the experts do on Hoarders? Ill get you one of those bio suits and gloves to wear, just in case there's a family of mice in there. (I'm serious - about the coming round and helping me, not the mice. I'm sure there's no mice).
