Am I the only one?

I just wondered - does anyone else out there like to say goodnight to their fabric or am I the only one? I mean, I don't actually tuck it in and read it Goldilocks or anything, its just that quite frequently the last thing I will do before I snuggle down is nip into the back bedroom and have a quick peek at my fabric. I just like to remind myself of what is in there so that I can go to sleep with the colours in mind and drift off with various possible designs in my mind. I supose its the nearest I can get to eliminating the frustration that comes from knowing I'd get so much more made if only I didn't have to sleep.



This is today's bag. In theory its for a swap but I don't know... I like it and I have time to make another for the swap.......
As for the two suggestions I got about what is to go in the beaded swap bag. Erica, I see where you are coming from with the chocolate but it turns out when I read the recipent's profile that she doesn't eat anything with wheat, dairy, sugar, gluten or anything that is non-organic.... way too much hard work for me! But she is a quilter and I did see beautiful little pens and mechanical pencils at Paperchase at Euston station last week that I didn't need but really wanted to buy so I guess I'll combine the other two suggestions - pencil and fabric.

I'll have to remember about the mechanical pencils as gifts to my quilting friends. It's one of my favorite marking tools on paper and fabric ... and there are such cute ones out there.

No, I don't say goodnight to my fabric stash BUT I do often take a box of my quilting magazines to bed for inspiration. I'm with you on the "I'd get so much more done if I didn't have to sleep" idea. Someone needs to invent a pill that gives us 8 hours worth of sleep for only 2 hours. I'm sure it would be a winner.

I not only say goodnight, I usually say good morning too! My dedicated sewing room is only a year-and-a-half old, so I'm still appreciating the wonder of it. A room just for me, where I create, meditate, ruminate (my computer is there too), and recreate. It's heaven and I have to be sure it's really there and really mine.
