Retail Therapy!

Feeling a little depressed lately I decided I needed some retail therapy to comfort know it works like eating chocolate, Tim-Tams, ice cream, lots of cream and anything with too much "NOT GOOD FOR YOU" stuff!

Retail therapy keeps your purse thin but also keeps your hips trim.......well.... that is if they are trim to begin. Let's not go there....I'll get depressed again and have to shop!

Soooo........ I went shopping and here is what I brought..........I think these were on special so I had to have them, you know for next Christmas!

They are Makower Christmas 2012 fat quarter set , some above and some below. I actually set out the top ones and after I had taken the piccy I discovered there were still others in the range that had fallen out of the bundle!

Then there are a couple of packs and patterns by Bird Brain Designs

This fabric above with this pattern below.

This fabric with this pattern.

And this pattern on its own just because I like it! I could probably make this without a pattern but we need to keep the designers in business.

and last but not least there is a Winter Elegance 36 FQ bundle by Moda. I think this is Christmassy, but I'm not sure, will have to check!

 ........and for those of you who think I was just buying things and not sewing, here is a snippet of what I have been making for a secret swap!
