Who do you blame for ....? is the title of a satirical local tv program, and very funny it is too. It hits the nail right on the head.
Who do I blame for 2 blog posts in the one day? Do I blame Cindy of Fluffy Sheep Quilting for having a closing down sale of her online shop? Or do I blame Yvonne of Quilting Jet Girl for hosting Molli Sparkles Sunday Stash? Or do I just take ownership of my own misdoings and they say in talk shows?
I wasn't buying any more fabric. We even agreed in a perfectly amicable marital conversation, that I probably had enough fabric. But .... my good friend Liz says her granny used to say, it wasn't you bought that you regretted but what you didn't buy. Mrs Brown was a very wise old lady. She knew what she was talking about.
I'll blame Mrs Brown.
I would have loved to have bought a lot more, but caution prevailed just after our big holiday. I did buy some more bright pink kona, a half metre. I am a pink lady at heart, or I am during the summer months. We all know what kona looks like, haven't bothered with a photo!
I also bought a skinny bolt. That's what is left on the bolt that is unsold. My daughter in law would love this Christmas folk art fabric. See, its a family essential.
Cindy was one of the first to encourage me in this obsession of mine. Late one Saturday night, before the obsession set in, I was flicking about the internet. As you do. I saw a blog post for the MQI, an online modern quilters group for those living in Ireland. They say you shouldn't use a keyboard late at night after a few vinos. I signed up. Next thing I knew I was in an online bee, with Cindy telling me I would love it and just to BREATHE. And BREATHE I did. Thank you Cindy and good luck with your future endeavours.
