Sunday morning, whilst still in bed, I was pondering my next Hadley quilt, you know, the Denyse Schmidt one, and I got all panicky that I wouldn't be able to back it with something worthy; some things just need more than the IKEA numbers.
So then I searched out an eBay seller from my dreams! If you are in the UK, take a look here, and I dare you to resist - you want a bargain, trust me, I am the one to find you one...
One of my favourite Chicopee prints - a whole bolt!!!
Yup, a bolt, my first (and probably last, in reality), for a ridiculous price (for us in the UK at least!). I know we moan all the time, but with a meter now coming in at about £14 here, and with the exchange rate, mailing costs and dreaded import duty-sting, it makes bulk US shopping almost as expensive. So to buy 8m for £5/m and free delivery, of something you actually want, nay, need, I had palpitations.
So half of it is earmarked for the quilt, and the other half will be cropping up frequently, I have plans for my FQR swapsies and a few other bits and pieces that I need to make. Hope you don't get bored of seeing it non-stop for the next 6 months!
Right, must fly. The clock is ticking and Jack only has 24hrs to save the world!
