The Busy Are Troubled By One Devil, The Idle By Many

The quilts are finished and I am finally able to work on my 'own' things. Between mending, several piles of material and quite a few reconstructions, my days will be full at least until the end of the week. I also recently received a Spotlight gift voucher which should take care of any unforeseen zip/thread expenditure.

A sneak peak of some of the materials I'll be working with -

Plus up to twenty more... I'm a bit of a fabric hoarder. The plan is to make a whole bunch of stuff and then put it away and I get to pick something out once a week. Hopefully it will curb my need to shop.
On another note, did anyone catch the first episode of Australia's Project Runway? (If not catch it on YouTube, who really wants to pay for cable). My thoughts straight up were - Kristy Hinze is an idiot, my favourite is Petrova (the cute one who owns her own boutique) and I thought that Brent was adorable. I was super suprised though at how bitchy/catty a lot of the contestants are! It was the first episode! I guess I just have this crazy idea that people who all love the same thing should get along...

Love all of the prints. Project Runway Australia, you say? Must check that out.
Good point about role models and style models--we should differeniate and the gap is widening.

I looove the top two fabrics and I can't wait to see what you make with them! Oh and maybe you can help (this is a very silly question) but is there any trick to sewing stretch fabrics? When ever I try to sew anything stretchy in my machine it gets stuck. Any suggestions? :D
