My stash overfloweth. I have more then enough in the way of material, wool, yarn and just general crafty stuff, to keep me making things for quite some time. I have material in the garage, and yarn in a kid's room. So, in terms of both time-to-complete and storage-capacity, I really don't need to do any random supply buying at the Festival of Quilts.
I do have some ideas of future projects that I'll want to do one day, possibly, maybe. My aim is to only buy material that will be appropriate for any such future plans.
- Pansies: I have the urge to do something pansy related, but I don't know what yet.
- Pictures: like the cloud material from the Makeower Maritime range, which I used in my Charmed quilt. Making pictures using picture fabric appeals to me.
- Astronomical material: for quilts showing star formation and the night sky, and I think I'd like to make some using fabric like this range.
- Six inch charm squares that cost less then 20p each: I have a source for them at that price, and I am actually using them up. If I'd got round to showing you my Project Spectrum efforts you could see them too. The project I am doing is not for Project Spectrum, so I'm not restricted colour-wise.
- Anything else I really, really like: I do have to allow for complete impulse. After all, you go to this kind of show to find new ideas. Aboriginal inspired prints and things that make me think "bricks" are permitted.
PS I'll be taking my green stripey bag when I go on Friday, so if you see it, please say "Hi". It'll probably be around "Subway" at about 2pm, so be sure to look for it there. Please don't be shy, even if I'm talking to anyone else.
