Did you hear that? That was the sound of me falling off the fabric diet yesterday. Yes, I must put up my hands and admit that I caved in and placed, not just one, but two orders for fabric! I blame January - it's such a cold, dark and long month, I couldn't quite make it to the end without the promise of some pretty fabric winging it's way to me! I promise to be good for the remainder of the diet though - I think there's still 3 or 4 weeks left so this will have to keep me going! I have been experiencing a real yearning for some grey fabric - I saw on someone's blog a while back a beautiful stack of fabrics in greys, plums, deep purples etc and I just knew that I wanted to make a quilt using those colours, so I have started collecting.
In a bid to get out of my motivational slump, I signed up for two new swaps this week on Flickr - a pincushion swap and a mini quilt swap (bigger than a mug rug but smaller than a doll quilt!) and I just got my partner for the mini quilt swap. This one isn't a secret swap, we are swapping directly with each other so I'm looking forward to getting to know my partner and thinking up a design. I'm also toying with the idea of maybe running a little swap myself - just a very simple one this time though, perhaps for some fabric and a little make or two? Would anyone be interested?
