I'VE BEEN VERRRRRY BAD!
I can't believe it! After being so good and not even being tempted to buy fabric the few times I've had to go into a fabric store for other supplies. And then look what came in the mail yesterday. I've been getting these 2 groups of FQs each month (one group batiks and the other misc. co-ordinated) for over a year and have been telling myself since I made my pledge for no new fabric that I needed to cancel but I just kept forgetting. On purpose maybe, I wonder? I mean I've loved everything I've gotten with the exception of the prints in one months grouping. (The blenders were all moda marbles so what's not to like there!) And I just stripped those "uglies" up into my strip drawers so no waste there.
So will I cancel before I get next months packet? Honestly I'm not sure as these came at a time when I've been really down and were a nice pickup. If anything I might drop the batik group as my batik shelf is getting pretty full now and maybe let myself keep the others. It might be good to put a little something fresh in the stash as I work to use up some of the old stuff. And as long as I use more per month than I get from these FQ groups I think I just might let myself have a little new eye candy each month. :-)
I'm STILL sick although I do feel a bit better each day and actually sewed a bit on Saturday on my Scrappy Spools and we pulled the ATVs out on Sunday and took a short ride.
That's another of my passions - ATVing. This is a big surprise for everyone in my family including me as I'm such a wuss about a lot of stuff and didn't even learn to use the riding mower until a few years ago. David's wanted one for years so I bought him one for his birthday in August 2004. By the time his birthday came around in 2005 I was riding it more than he was. So I bought him another one and took the first one and now we love to go riding. In the little country subdivision we live in there are over 60 miles of roads. The main ones are paved like the one we live on. But lots of them are dirt or gravel. And there are miles of trails cut in some of the empty lots so lots of fun riding. This is David riding his.
And just as an added bonus another shot of our backyard I took a few days ago. This was taken at about the same spot where I took the bluebonnet pictures last spring.
