Not the only one.

Well, it seems I'm not alone. I'm not the only one who blames Moda for our lack of money! Maybe we should start a therapy group? One where we vow to be strong and frugal and....yer, I know. It's a lost cause.

So what better way to console my lack of money? To play with fabric of course.
I've had a wonderful time playing of late.

Let's see. I've played with a layer cake. And had fun chopping that up, and then sewing it all back together.
I love this range, "Objects of Desire" by Sandy Gervais. It's so bright and happy.

Am planning on backing it with these pretty pink and white spots. Love it.


I've also been playing with a jelly roll (I'm doing a great job of blaming Moda, aren't I?) This is another of my favourite ranges, "Celebrate Spring," also by Sandy Gervais.



And a friend of mine comissioned a wee little playmat for her friends sons 1st birthday. These are brilliant playmat panels - just love them.


So yes, things have been rather busy!

Oh, and just an aside and personal note on the homefront. My dad had surgery last week to remove the prostate. Everything went well, and the biopsy revealed that they were able to get all the cancer, and it had not spread to the outside of the prostate. So - great news! Thanks for all your thoughts, prayers and kind wishes. I greatly appreciate it.

So glad to hear about your Dad. The same thing happened with my Dad. He was in his late 60s when they found the cancer and his surgery removed everything as well. He passed away at 82 of heart failure.

So glad your Dad is ok. You have been making some gorgeous stuff. And yes. I blame Moda too. (Just been looking at their site and wishing/dreaming.)
