Refresh Button

So, who out there, in the UK side of you all was on IG last night hitting the refresh button as fast as you could in...


Seriouisly, I did not know what I had bought by the end of it. I am still not sure. It's going to be some happy post days in the not too distant future though. I'll show you what I managed to buy when it is all here. Not nearly as much as I tried to buy, mind you. I couldn't type in 'Me' fast enough for some of the fabric on sale. What a fun evening though. And - get this - himself said to me beforehand, 'Don't sell any of your fabric and buy what you like.' Huh?! Not sure what I put in his dinner that caused this but must figure it out and put it in more often!

Not to forget, I stumbled into my lqs on Friday after a flat tyre and all that fun, having completely lost the will to control my spending. I went in for two FQs and some machine needles.


In a strange twist of fate I came out with more. What cane I say? They had some old favourites still in stock and some lovely new lines in. I could not resist.

Finally, I have been doing more HST trimming. The colours are still making me happy.

  6. Rainbow trimmings - very satisfying to look and such a beautiful pile of scraps, and know you're making progress. I have some trimming to do myself today - tedious work but unfortunately necessary (unless you'd like to come and do it for me ?)

    Cant wait to see what you bought fabric wise !

  8. It'll be like your birthday when you finally get all the stuff you bought through! I was following it all as a spectator. I do wonder about IG though because Emily - strawberry patch says she didn't win on one thread of Fiona's and yet on my feed she's the first person to say she wanted it. Hmmm

  9. Awesome husband! I look forward to seeing what you bought as you do too! I'm so glad I was just selling!

  10. I'm really struggling to comment on your blog - this and post the other day. It keeps saying bloggers become unresponsive and won't post?

    Anyway, I watched all the IG activity as a spectator. It'll be like Christmas when what you bought arrives! I do wonder about IG commenting though. Emily clearly says on one of Fiona's that she's not won it but according to my feed she's the first person to comment.

  11. Have I mentioned that Eclectic Maker is 2 blocks from my house?? Temptation or what??
    I have started to allow myself £20 per month on discretionary spending (I know, radical spendthrift huh? LOL)
    - read I buy fabric :)
    Will have to get a post up & show my latest purchases.

  12. Ha ha I know you bought a lot because every time I looked at some pretty fabric on Instagram you had already bagged it! And why not - your stash is going to be v impressive after this. Really looking forward to seeing the final haul photo.

    Love the photo after the HST trimming - who would ever think that something destined for the bin could be so pretty!

  13. I am seriously trying to get some of this fabric at the moment but can only find it in America & Australia. Trying for home turf, anyone know of it??

  17. nice haul! Can't wait to see what you got - I'm not on IG thank goodness because it would have been to tempting but it'll be fun seeing what people bought!

  18. I got a much longed for and missed first time round fat 8th bundle. And a lovely wee pile from Miss Emily. So I am very happy but virtuous! Could (tried!) have spent a fortune.

  23. HST trimming is always pretty :)

    I completely failed on the UK destash - I had two lots of clients on Sunday and I was about ready for bed by 7pm, not starting to sell and buy fabric. Can't wait to see what changed hands though!

  25. The IG sale was an inspiration but I watched the Midwife in the end instead.

  28. It was loads of fun....I thought I'd bought a jelly roll, but hadn't...so now I'll have a hopscotch pattern and no jelly roll : o( But I did buy some lovely stuff ... Took me a while to realise that I wasn't first, even though it looked like I was! But that saved me some money

  29. Nice fabric shopping. Sunday evening was such fun. I couldn't beep up. I loved the post of the fabric stash that one hubby put up for £0.01. I lol and my man couldn't believe that a hubby would dare do that! Your husband was far kinder. Di x

  30. How sweet of 'him' to give you permission to go wild...mine would NEVER say that - he knows only too well that I would go nuts! Looking forward to seeing what you've bought when it arrives!
