The fabric arrived from Kimono House on Friday and is it just as I ordered! Actually it's better, as there's a bit of texture to it which I like (Sue and I chose some of the fabrics in the quilt because of their texture) and there is a slight sheen to it, or the illusion anyway, without being 'silky' or 'slippery'.
It's been sitting on the desk teasing me since then and so far I haven't had the time to do anything with it - too busy browsing through houses, talking to salespeople, crunching numbers and deliberating about what is the right thing to do! I'm thinking tonight that I deserve a break from it all to get sewing again.
I can believe how much I feel the need to sew. It was just less than a week ago that I was last at the machine or did anything creative and I'm getting withdrawals! Funny thing is, that it was only about 2 months ago that I had no inspiration to do anything and for the past 12 months I have only done the odd sporadic stint of stiching or creativity and even then I usually walked away disheartened and unenthused. Creating and sewing almost daily certainly drives me to want more!
