Yesterday I went to the shop to buy one piece of fabric and came home with these. One piece became two, two became three.........well you know how it goes. Did I buy the piece I originally went for, NO! And do I have two metres of the pink check already, YES! Could I bring myself to cut into it even if the piece is so small I will probably never notice, NO! So much easier to buy a Fat 1/8. And now I must confess; I do have a little piece of this fabric somewhere in my stash, but the thought of coming home and searching for it when I could be stitching....... Lucky I love it! And how fortunate fabrics don't have a Use By Date! Just another reason why fabric is so much better than chocolate.
I was going to finish another project I have on the go but these cards are too tempting. Each time I finish one I think I might just try that button with this fabric and maybe I could write 'dear mum' on the inside.
And of course, how could I resist making a Christmas card. I do so love these buttons of Barb's.
They're simple and quick to make and I think that's one of the reasons why I'm finding it difficult to know when to stop. However today I'm going to continue writing the pattern and maybe later on I'll get the chance to do a little stitching.
Here is someone else who has trouble knowing when to stop. Julie has made not one but three of the little Bird of Happiness purses featured in Homespun. I have wondered if others find my projects as quick and achievable as I think they are, so it's great to see that Julie has made three in next to no time at all. Beautiful work Julie!
