New Start?

So I pretty much haven't been blogging for awhile - I'd say 2 months or so - due to the loss of my sewing mojo. As I am sure most of you are aware, sewing can be quite the solitary activity. After getting sick of my previous hermit-like behaviour and getting a swift kick up the backside from that lovely little thing called 'life', I started making up for lost time by camping out at friend's houses, eating, drinking, dancing, and basically doing anything to keep myself busy and occupied with other people around.

Anyhoo, I didn't think I'd be doing anything craft related for a long time, until today. Admittedly, I still haven't done anything craft related - I just spent money (I am pretty good at this, if I do say so myself) but today was special since I spent the money on FABRIC! *Ta-DAH*

Yes, yes I can feel the golf claps all around. I feel like I deserve a prize or something, which is kinda stupid, but I guess it shows the frame of mind I have been in recently.

The only reason I was even in the fabric shop in the first place was because I promised to take my Ma there and once surrounded by all the colours and the sale rack ('sucker for a bargain' should be imprinted on my forehead) I couldn't help but get slightly excited.

Came away with 8.5 metres of cotton - 4 sorts - hopefully the new purchases inspire me to get cutting and stitching asap rather than being relegated to the ever growing stash.

Pics coming soon (if I ever get around to it *grin*)
