This new year has gotten off to a slow start for me in several ways. After the holidays I decided to get sick and that really put a crimp in my lifestyle. When you don't feel well, nothing gets done -- cooking, cleaning, sewing or even reading. All I wanted to do was sleep and sleep some more. Now, I think I've finally gotten rid of the bug and life is picking up again.
One of our local quilt shops is closing and being sick is not excuse to miss a great sale, right?? I had a friend take me by this week before all of the fabric was gone. I did manage to come home with 18 yards of fabric for backings. The price was too good to miss - 70% off . I could have easily filled the van to the top, but there was the small matter of about 40 other quilters there with the same idea too and the lines were unbelievable--getting the fabric measured, cut and then into another line to pay. Sometimes you need lots of patience along with $$ to take advantage of a good sale. Since I was still ill, my patience was a bit shorter than usual.
Here's my first report for this year.
Fabric Added - 18 yards
Fabric Used - 0
Fabric Added YTD - 18
Fabric Used YTD - none that I can count yet
