I wasn't going to...

but then I did. Buy more fabric, that is.
I don't need it, but I wanted it. And now that the camera straps are all finished, I'm going to attack that pile with the rotary cutter and then sew it back together again. Which, if you were wondering, is exactly my idea of fun.
That fabric is gorgeous! I have a problem with fabric buying...I buy it all and never use it.

Oh crap. I'm waiting for it to go on sale. So I can talk myself into it without feeling guilty.

I once asked my Grandma why she never quilted, even though she sewed a lot. She said her mother, my Great Grandmother Galloway, used to say "Why should I take a perfectly good piece of fabric and cut it into tiny pieces just so I can sew it all back together again?" lol. So, quilting skipped two generations in my family and I learned the answer to GG's question -- it is a magnificent obsession to do just that!

The new blog design is lovely! I'm very excited for you, it seems like a lot is happening over at house on hill road this fall.
Your book is in the mail, on its way to me and I can hardly wait. I've been popping in here for years for inspiration (and a little kick in the butt when I need it). Thank you so much for sharing it all.

DS knows her stuff. Lovely fabrics which you'll make into something even lovelier, I am certain. Enjoy your weekend, Erin! xoxo

I bought some too. You'd think I was running out of fabric.
