My pledge for June

I have to write this on the www, so it will seem more real and hopefully I'll stick to it!

In June I will try to not buy any more fabric or clothes for the girls. I have more than enough material in this house and the girls have heaps of clothes for winter. Wadding does not count as fabric though! We are off to Sydney for a family wedding in late October and it really is time to start pulling in the purse strings a bit in preparation. I have to work on the need/want aspect in my shopping! Saying that though, my iron has just died this morning so I'll have to go buy one of those today.... Suppose thats what I get for leaving it on all the time.

Things are getting a bit messy in the sewing room/space/bench/nook. I have two log cabin blocks totally finished, the one on the bench just has the last row to go. I was doing block #2 and #3 as you go, like sew a row, then get out all my strips and see what colour tone would work next. Then if there was nothing there, I'd rummage in my stash. And then I'd just plonk it all on the bench! Should really put it away Helen......

I would love to join you on the no fabric ban but I might have to get some polar fleece to sew FIL's pressie. BTW, is that a dryer I see in the pic?
