The other day when Moh phoned we got onto the subject of Kindles and he suggested I treated myself to one. In fact the conversation went like this:
Moh: I think you should treat yourself to one (kindle)
Me: Noooooo, they're too expensive it's too much of a luxury item. I'll just pop it on my Christmas list and if the family want to club together they can.
Moh: Christmas is ages away, treat yourself now. You hardly ever treat yourself.
Me: I do. I am always treating myself.
Me: Some silver earrings from Etsy. Oh and loads of fabric.
Moh: Fabric isn't a treat though.
Me: It is!
Moh: No, for you it's a necessity because you need to make stuff. It's like essential.
Oh, how I wish I could have recorded that conversation for future playback when Moh finds out just how much fabric costs. I have a feeling if he knew he may not be suggesting I go treat myself to a kindle!
But it does make me feel slightly better about all the online purchasing I've been doing for my new project! :: wink ::
4 fat quarters I'd ordered with my HAL project in mind turned up in the post today so I've spent a good chunk of the day making hexies. Once I hit on a theme for this project I realised I had very little fabric already that fitted that theme. There is actually something quite satisfying about buying fabric for a particular project. (Although it's probably not a good idea to think too hard about how much you're spending on each little online spending foray).
I managed to fussy cut these from one fat quarter. I decided to do the fussy cutting for the big hexies so I could use the left over fabric to make pieced hexies. In fact in the last three pictures posted you can see how I used up some of the other fabric from the hexies above!
I will try not to bore you all with endless posts of supersized hexies. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
