I’ve been good. Despite my friends handing me fabric, I’d managed to decimate my fabric stash this year. Mind you, my stash wasn’t that big, especially in comparison to what I’ve seen mentioned by a few quilt bloggers I read. Me, I’m cranky; if my stash starts building up, it means I’m not using what I’m purchasing, and that doesn’t seem like a good use of money.
However, i can give you a taste of what’s to come in 2010. You can blame Jacob and Alice. Well, and me.
Jacob, for one, doesn’t know how to do things by halves. In the summer of 2009, I mentioned to him that fat quarters made excellent and cheap gifts for quilters. He was seeking gift ideas, and I thought, What could be the harm in telling him this? I expected a padded envelope with a few fat quarters tucked in. Instead, over the course of the summer, I received these.
