This, that and Etzcetera

I have been in my sewing room today as
its been bitterly cold outside...lots of rain and windy too.
 What a wonderful day to be had in my little cosy room
I say cosy, cos its little and full with a nice warm heater..
 I did a little sewing of a UFO I had sitting here for ages
 here's some progress.. LOL...I did only say some progress
and then I started to write my priority list,
(thanks for the inspiration Vicki)
it is so so needed to keep me focused, 
and on track with my sewing  and time.
First I needed to go through some baskets of half started,
lost interest projects.....
And this helps to see what needs to be done now or last week.
One things is for sure.....
I do not need anymore fabrics...LOL...
Well maybe just a few, just to finish off...

But buying magazines that so inspire me
is a habit necessity I can't resist at the moment.

They inspire and create a delight to me to get some things
finished and maybe start some more little projects.
Thats why when Jo sent me the link to this new magazine,

I could not resist a look and signed up to have a read
 and read I did...cover to cover...
Well done Kim.... its fabulous!
 Have you visited yet...
it's worth a visit, it's a great read...
Make a cuppa and sit and enjoy the journey... I did!

 Now I am off to read a paper magazine with my cuppa,
while I wait for another little person to enter my family...
 waiting for a grandchild to enter the world is a tease for a Nan..
 will show some pics soon of No 2 grandbaby...
 excited Nana here... he he

Happy Reading to you too.

I also have a habit or should I say addiction to some of these magazines. I find them so inspirational. I just enjoy thumbing through looking at the pictures. It makes me think of new ways to do old things. The colors and textures really get my juices flowing. Sorry you have such lousy weather, we are in the full swing of summer here, but our time will come . . . .and then I will be in the sewing room! Have fun and stay warm!!!!! Happy quilting.

Ooooooh Dawnie, how exciting!!! I can't wait to see pics of your new arrival (when he/she actually arrives of course lol).
Love your UFO, those fabrics are delish - I think I have some of those myself ;o).
You're right, there's only one place to be in this chilly weather and that's in a nice cosy 'cave' :o).
Love n hugs,
