The good news is that I may not be hoplessly addicted. I went to a quilt shop after work today and bought..... nothing. Nada! See, it is possible. I went hoping to buy an entire roll of wadding and 7m of backing/binding fabric for the frothy quilt but they had no wadding on the roll at all and nothing caught my eye for the backing. I didn't even grab a reel of thread when I was there. Nothing. I amaze myself.
The bad news is that just before I left work a fellow Judge was chatting to me about his holiday home and wanted to show me some photos on his laptop. So there I am politely looking at his shots of pool, beach and his rather stunnng wife holding up a plate of ginormous king prawns when I spot the tiles on the Portugese table top. The photo is on its side so I am there head on one side, finger on the screen going, "Oh fantastic pattern, look a bit of hand applique and you could piece the stars and....." and then I remember where I am and who I am talking to.....!!
