As you can see, I have indulged in another magazine. This is my favourite quilting magazine and has some lovely quilts in it. As I am so busy quilting at the moment, it's good to keep my mojo active over the winter months, when I have a bit more time (once Christmas is behind us).
Above and below: I also indulged in these two quilted bag making books. I love the little houses on the bag bottom left on the Quilted Bags and Gifts book.
I was inspired to get the Happy Hexies book after the last quilt show, when I saw some pre-cut "felty" formers for small hexagons, that would keep the sharp edges far better than paper piecing. I didn't buy any but I may at the next craft fair I go to, if the same stand is there.
I am trying to keep myself cheerful (hence the purchases) as I am not feeling 100% at the moment. Yesterday was the anniversary of my best friend Tricia's death, so that has made me feel rather low, and I have some health blips too, which I will be glad when they are sorted. My main asthma inhaler doesn't seem to be agreeing with me but it won't be sorted until I see my Asthma Nurse in December. I have had to drop the dosage (Dr's advice) and it looks like I will have to have a change of medication.
We have a couple of Fairs lined up for the next two weekends, and next week's is in a very cold unheated venue, so that will have to be endured. I just hope folk SPEND for once. All the stallholders were complaining last time as despite a large number of people through the doors, very few of them actually spent any money! We don't do this for fun . . . We won't be continuing doing this Fair in 2018 as it's just not worth the effort, which is a shame as it is local.
Anyway, I can hear Keith unpacking his new electric chainsaw (his sore arm won't allow him to yank the cord on the petrol one) so will go down and make admiring noises!!
