  • Excited about new material!

    Does anyone else feel like this?
    I've just picked up a lovely pile of fabric offcuts from a curtain shop - fuschia and black chenille; raspberry and gold satin and chenille; sage green and cream chenille. I'm so excited and have so many ideas whizzing round my head - I can't wait to get started turning it into bags!
    Why oh why do children need feeding first??

              I'm not like that when I buy beads but when I've made something with them that I really like then it sits on a bust on my hearth for about a week before I let OH take it away to (try to) sell it on the market stall. He finds it highly amusing and when it later sells he always tells the customer how long I kept it at home for "just looking at it".

              I reckon its a girl thing.

                Visions of crafters all over the country stroking their materials or sitting and admiring their finished creation!!!! Bless you. Keep stroking.

                  A friend I am slowly making patchwork pillows for to cover a loooong window seat in her 'new to her' house gave me a load of fabric samples. I was drooling over the box and have taken them out several times - but made nothing yet!

                  Anyway, I have to edge a quilt first coz I've entered it in the local show and it has priority - only been sitting for a year waiting!

                      You sound like my girlfriend. She's a sculptress with a passion for making stuff out of wire and discarded metal. She almost purrs with excitement when she discovers the perfect wire coil.

                            I'm like that with string and cord - lovely properly plied string, linen, jute, hemp whatever. Whenever I see some I just have to buy it.

                            Also paper and card but I haven't printed any greetings cards for ages.

                              I always wanted to work in either an art supplies shop or a fabric shop. Hows that for ambition! Seriously though, I'm just the same with anything to do with crafts (or art) just can't keep my paws to myself.
