Approximately 58 Meters Later

Let me the aftermath of a "Creative Frenzy" the doldrums hit. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. After spending weeks immersed in a project, to the point of obsession, at times, one is left feeling a little lack luster, when all is said and done.  

A little shop hop was in order. Climbing into fellow quilter's car she casually (well, not all that casually) mentions, that one of our favourite shops is moving....and you know what that means, deals are to be had. 

The author, of this particular sale, is ingenious...I mean she knows us quilters. The more you buy the greater percentage you save.....who does that to a fabric junkie???

Well, fifty eight (give or take a few) meters later...... 
Does that even look like 58 meters???  

Notice, I'm being very restrained in my choices...if not in my amounts. The majority of the yardage I bought is somewhat neutral with lovely texture and of course a few funky prints, thrown in for good measure. 

After all, there has to be some sort of restraint when buying in such an uncontrolled manner. I know, it's a bit like going on a chocolate binge, only much more expensive.....hmm, chocolate sounds good, right about now.

Last but not least, I casually threw this book, on top of my pile....I'm a bit of a book junkie as well.  My plan was to take a quick browse, before I headed off for bed, last night.....well I was still up at 4:30 am, with all kinds of creativity rattling around my brain.

I quickly made a little test sample.........I think I feel another "Creative Frenzy" coming on. I'll keep you posted.


  1. I know what you mean, hard to restrain yourself and I agree, it doesn't look like that much at all. Love the chocolate cream combinations, delish.(those circles and dots and stripes and squares with the solids... yum!)

  2. Oh, it seems you've had a real blast, hunting, fondling and selecting fabrics - now the creative juices are running wild and I'll be stalking with interest to see how this circle quilt is created
    I've a secret passion for funky, modern, contemporary, 'circle' quilts

  3. You are a good shopper, your selections look well thought out. Can't wait to see where you go with these!

    1. doesn't take me long to find 58 meters.

  4. OMG, look at that, those are gorgeous. I can totally see them all in a quilt together. Argh, wish I could do some fabric shopping too. (nextpaychequecomingupsooooooon :)

  5. It may not look like 58 meters, but it sure looks like YOU. What fun that must have been.

  6. That book looks interesting and have fun playing with your new stash of fabrics.

  7. Which shop might that be? Looks like you have many good fabrics, I can hardly wait to see what you make next.

  8. Your purchases are inspiring! I've never been able to commit to more than 4 or 5 metres of one fabric at a time (and even that's only happened a few times in 10 years). Well done! I love everything you bought and look forward to seeing it in your work.

  9. Ha! So nice to know I am not the frenzy.

  10. When are you going in to rehan? ;-) I`m a complete book junky too and would be a fabric one too if possible. Enjoy your haul!

  11. It's good to know I am not the only one!

  12. i am here to say that this is "a very good thing." Those fabrics are so delicious. Enjoy!

  13. Those metres add up quickly! I love all your choices.

  14. Love the fabric you bought! The black and whites are great! You have to buy when a good deal presents itself. I would love to shop in you fabric storage room! I went on a buying trip May 3 and 4th and ended up with 69 yards of fabric! I have used a half a yard so far!
