I tracked down what I hope will be the perfect binding material for the Siblings Together quilt on Etsy, but now I'm kicking my heels a bit while it travels all the way from Utah. Who needs an excuse to visit a real fabric shop though? I took Sprog 1 to spend her pocket money at the weekend and we found this haul of treasure in the bargain bin. I really try very hard not to buy fabric unless I have a project in mind, but...
Each piece was around a fat quarter for 50p - and all, except for the one bottom left which is muslin, are nice heavy cotton. Bargain! I had to have them.
Bags? Cushion covers? What would you make with them?
If you, like me, are on Bank Holiday - have a good one! There are currently only happy sounds coming from the children's bedroom where they seem to be playing a game which involves one of them being taken to the hospital to have a stone removed from her foot - maybe I will get some sewing done! Long may the peace last. I was typing up some invoices yesterday and found that my daughter had left open a document on my laptop entitled "New insults to call X" (her younger sister). Among other things the list included "pee brain" (sic) and "turkey-headed". Lovely! I suppose it could have been worse.
