A bit of me time

I found myself with some precious childfree time yesterday prior to going to the dentist for my fifth (and hopefully final) filling. So I visited my favourite quilting shop where the ladies are friendly and helpful and bought my first sewing supplies - a rotary cutter and two fat quarters to start my fabric stash. My Mum also donated some old pink gingham which I know will come in handy. Plus, the quilt shop has a huge bookcase of quilting/sewing magazines which customers can borrow and return or replace at leisure so I took two home to feast my eyes upon. Now I just need to get my hands on my sister's sewing machine (and have it serviced) and I can embark upon some sewing. I think I might start with a dolly quilt before I move up to something more tricky.

YAAY!!! I love quilts! I love making them, I love snuggling under them, I love resting atop them on the grass in a shadowy spot... my first quilt was a baby quilt, in yellows, greens and whites... congrats!!!

You know I'll be emailing you two daily for help!

What makes you happy? said...

Ever since I was a child I've simply had to buy some kind of treat after a visit to the dentist. Unfortunately usually a chocolate treat. I'm sure your dentist would approve of yours far more and of course it will make you happy for far longer.

Looking at the supplies makes me want to start cutting away!!!

The quilt hasn't gone very far yet, as I still need a ruler and cutting mat! (And a serviced sewing machine!) But I like thinking about it!
