I have been so bad.....

I was very bad on the weekend. I went to Daylesford to the makers market. There were so many nice things to buy I couldn't decide what to buy. Plus I must admit I do suffer a bit with the "I could make that myself" syndrome. So I went for a walk to the little patchwork shop and I found some fabric. Some chocolate and aqua to go with my Saville Row quilt started quite a while ago (note to self do some work on it!) Also some nice brights I thought would go on Isabella's Rainbows and Lollipops quilt I also need to work on.

Then I spotted the Material Obsession 2 book with some of my favourite quilts, I had been meaning to buy no 1 but after looking at no 2 I could not resist it so again 1 will have to wait! Then I wandered over to the newsagent and could not resist the latest DUQ.

As if that wasn't enough I was reading some blogs when I got home and discovered Emma at Ballarat Patchwork had a 20% off sale. So I got this book I have had my eye on before it was released, a great time to buy with the sale. Now I had better be really really good for a while and work on some UFO's!!!

Double Delight, Bonnie Hunter ( mystery quilt from New Years early this year! I pulled it out and started working on it when I saw there was a new Christmas mystery quilt. I don't have a christmas quilt so I am very tempted by Carolina Christmas, a christmas quilt in repro fabrics, sounds like me.

Jane Austen quilt which has been the bane of my existence for the past three years! I am sick of trying to get all those white borders matched!!! Then I realised I didn't have all the white borders around the centre panel...gggrrrrrrrr!!!!! So it has gone into hybernation once again until I have the patience to start unpicking AGAIN.
