There's lots of talk around the blogger-sphere about fabric fasting. I can understand how you get to that stage of needing to fast. A little fat quarter here and fat eighth there, then the festive season comes and before you know it you're devouring whole fat quarter bundles in the sales. As a result you've loaded on the yardage - yup it happens to the best of us.
|Purchased "It's a Hoot" by 'M.M' for Moda - from local quilting shop Patchwork at Homespun|
I'm not good at diets or fasting. I think it stems from my disposition of being told what to do - yes I'm half Dutch - the stubborn half.
|Purchased from Spotlight - Shott cotton in silver grey. Hard to capture how beautifully the light bounces off this shimmery fabric|
I prefer a more balanced diet so that I can consume a little of everything and not have to worry about the inches. A little bit of designer mixed with a little bit of Spotlight and just enough to do the job.
|Luxury combined with Budget ... finally some grown-up cloth napkins for my home|
Don't get me wrong ... I'm no prude ... because THIS.IS.HAPPENING
|Birthday present to me!|
But in my measured defence ... I did wait for the sales and it should arrive just in time for my birthday - SNAP!
