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.
