Just for the record, I didn’t buy all the fabric in the pile above although it does all belong to one person. As usual around here, my shopping included things for presents, so I can’t show you pictures yet. Besides, Dibs’ pile is waaaaaaaay more impressive than mine.
In case you’re wondering what on earth I’m talking about, on Saturday, I went to the Goldhawk Road Fabric Fandango, organised by Karen of Did You Make That? There’s a great post about it on her blog here, with a list of everyone who was there. And yes, that is a lot of bloggers! Between us and the Sew Weekly meet-up, Goldhawk Road shop owners had a good day.
I didn’t go mad on the shopping front, and everything I bought was for a specific project (or three). More on that as I go, although if anyone has a good t-shirt pattern they’d recommend, I’m on the lookout.
Otherwise, I’m having what I think is the nasty fall-out for coping so well with the house purchase and move. Despite some extremely sleepless nights beforehand, I actually felt relatively unstressed (for me!) through it all, so it appears to all be whacking me at once now – depression, weepiness, exhaustion, the whole ‘low self-esteem textbook’. It’s like it was lurking around the corner waiting for me, and it’s hard work to get through. Does anyone else get that?
Still, at least I have good things to look forward to. My craft room* is stacked high with fabric, my mother is taking me shopping next weekend (yes, more shopping!) and we’re hopefully going to be booking a much-needed holiday this week. Oh, and the sun is even shining, so it’s not all bad.
Hope everyone survived Monday! Have a good week.
*My husband persists in calling it ‘the study’. I’m working on him.
