|Even Ellie Cat has had enough....|
I realised yesterday when I woke from a doze that I didn't know what time it was. As in, I really didn't know if it was afternoon or evening... And I couldn't think what day it was either... And it was my fourth day on the sofa...
Of course I couldn't be arsed doing anything about that yesterday! But I did today. Got up early, spent the morning cleaning, went out for milk and went the long way to get a walk. Its now 2pm and I'm knackered! I've not been sleeping well for well over a week now, so my routine was bound to disappear, I'm not going to get annoyed with myself. I will try and keep busy this afternoon though, see if I can stay awake for the rest of the day. It was so great to get "Stained Pink" quilt finished I'll go and see if there's anything else I could finish this year too.
Meantime, this is one of the many, many combinations I spent the day messing about with yesterday - it was so much fun!

What an absolutely genius idea after Christmas, to get us fabric addicts to spend hours on the Fat Quarter Shop... If you're not familiar with Bloggers Choice, it really is as simple as it sounds - the Fat Quarter Shop picks a blogger and asks them to compile a fat quarter bundle, which will then be listed in the shop. Now wouldn't we all like to pretend that blogger was us? Laura, at Quokka Quilts, had the wonderful idea of making this a competition - not only do we get to sit for hours looking at fabric, it could also, for one lucky person, result in WINNING fabric!
Now, I found this so much fun that it was hard to pick one bundle... I was going to spend a few days on it (it runs til 15th January) but having seen the wonderful bundles that have been entered so far I thought I'd better get one in fast. So, I'm linking this to Quokka Quilts, and if you haven't had a go yet yourself, try it! (Just maybe make sure you have nothing else needing doing for a few hours...)
One other thing... Would anyone like to make this quilt (more or less!) as a QAL with me, in February? I cant promise it will be 100% identical as I am shockingly bad at doing the same thing twice, but the fabrics will be different for a start so it wouldn't look exactly the same anyway. If I can get a few people agreeing to it, I'll post fabric requirements for a crib size the last week of January, and start a week later. (if not I'll just quietly pretend I never suggested it...) It would of course be an awfully relaxed affair, nice and slow, and possibly with a wee prize for a completed one afterwards too. Anyone game?
