I'm Still alive!

It feels like forever since I have made an appearance on here, I think it has probably been a good 3 weeks or so, but here I am! Still alive, barely, but alive.

I have had a very intense couple of weeks, specifically this week, in the lead up to mid year exams. I think I must have had 3 or 4 sacs this week (and another on Monday), an essay due on Wednesday and my studio art folio was due today (which just casually has the same value as an exam and is worth 33% of my end of year mark) but enough whingeing... I have survived the week! With everything miraculously handed in on time So I am happy, very happy :)

Unfortunately I don't have very much to show you for the past couple of weeks, I haven't even done anymore work on my Fancy Free quilt for the Spring to Finish Challenge, however I can show you this, which I forgot all about.

 So just quietly....The last time I went to patchwork house, fabric for my Fancy Free Quilt wasn't the only fabric I came home with, nor was it just liberty snippets... I bought my first Layer Cake and Charm Squares!
This post probably should have been under the heading of Naughty but Nice #2 but oh well.

The second we walked in the door, Dad and I fell in love with this fabric called "Boutique" by Chez Moi for Moda. It has a bit of a Japanese feel to it but I absolutely love the colours! They also had free pattern for it based on a beautiful modern quilt they had on display, that I loved, but theirs was made with Rural Jardin instead of Boutique.

However, Even worse than buying this fabric that I probably don't need at the moment, is the fact that I have already started planning my next quilt using it and I haven't even finished the last 3 quilts yet!
Is that a bad thing?

  1. I dub you a "Quilter". In order to become a "True Quilter" you must have at least 6 UFOs (Unfinished Objects), a couple WIPs (WOrks in Progress), and several WIMM (Works in My Mind).

    Enjoy the fabric!

  2. I'm probably not too far off then! I definitely have several WIMM's, I have had to start a folder for all of them so I don't forget them or lose them, but I think I need to add another WIP.
    Thankyou! :)
