In fact I was relatively well restrained and came in £2.63 under budget (Had I worked that out before we were back in the car, I would have bought another half meter!). I scored 3 meters of a 108 inch dark blue Batik backing for my City and Guilds quilt for just £30 (The quilt is 96 x 96 so I was grateful not to have to piece a backing.) Also a new cutting board to replace the one I warped taking it to Bath and a half meter of blue Kaffe Fasset fabric for binding on the quilt over my 'studio/ dining room' chairs.
Done with the things I needed I could move on to things I just wanted. As you can see my batik collection just grew.
And grew like Topsy.All these half meters were just £2 each at the sale ( previously selling for £5) .
And this week these FQs arrived from Hannah's Room Beautiful Batiks Club.
Now if only I didn't ache from head to toe and feel so exhausted I might actually have made something today. Instead I gave in and lolled on the sofa for the rest of the day in yoga clothes and dressing gown reading The Brass Verdict by Michael Connelly and eating fudge. Life is not so bad.
