Read, shop, read

Today, I invested in my creative growth and spent several hours reading. A wonderful way to pamper myself!

I have two Kaffe Fassett books, Glorious Knits and Patchwork, that I drool over from time to time. I haven't looked at his new books but I did recently visited his website - I love his passion for color. I saw these fabrics bundle at my local quilt store, didn't even look at the fabric, just saw his name and in a moment of weakness...

PostSecret: lazy impulse shopping - no remorse.

Creative every day: 8 of 365 done!

Now what?

I haven't opened up the fabric bundles, I'll do that tomorrow. I'm eager to see if just looking at the fabric inspires me to make something. I haven't bought fabric in a while. Eighteen fat quarters, I'm feeling a little guilty but I'll get over it.

For now:
Read some more, work Friday's NYTimes crossword and watch a half hour of Planet Earth (a gift from my oldest daughter.)

What a very nice day! I have yet to buy any Kaffe Fasset, because I have way to much fabric, but I like his things more and more. It will be fun to see what you do with them.

Oh, yes, you'll get over it! You will be grateful you indulged in your impulse buy as you use them in your work. Lovely colors!

Kay - Ha! ...way too much fabric ... that's what I said as I was reaching for the credit card. I'm still in fabric-lust with them. I just want to hold them, and look at the patterns and colors (and sigh.)

Rian - yes, gorgeous... I've already confessed to fabric-lust!

Jenclair - yep, over the impulse buy but still in the ah-pretty-colors-special-fabric trance and have not yet allowed them to mingle with my other fabric.
