Most of you know how much I love my vintage sheets, their cheerful colours and happy designs.......but I'm just a little bit in love with Liberty too. Well actually it's more than a little.
After saving 'small change' for almost a year, I had enough to buy myself a whole rainbow of Liberty.....and so this lovely lot is destined to become my Liberty quilt.
I've been busy on Pinterest, collecting images on my Liberty Love board, musing over ideas. I'm not going to make even one snip until I'm absolutely sure what design I'm happy with.
I made a pledge to myself this year, not to purchase any more fabric or yarn, until I'd used up a significant amount of the stash I'd already acquired. And so far, I'm doing well.....I'm using up my yarn on several projects, and I've enough vintage sheets to last me a lifetime!!!
It's easy to get overwhelmed with Stuff, things you collect, things you think you need, but in the end it can feel a bit suffocating. So I've started the process of looking through my 'stuff', editing out stuff I don't actually need......it's going to take a while, but it feels good.
We've had a great weekend. It's birthday celebrations this week, my daughter is growing fast.....it's a privilege to watch her growing into such a gorgeous young woman, but sometimes I feel just like pressing the pause button! We've been to the cinema together, girly shopping and lunch at our favourite Italian. This week it's a birthday tea with family and then later in the week pizza with friends. Small celebrations, with close family and friends, just as she likes it.
I will be back later in the week with my Positive January Post.....bet Liberty will be in there somewhere........
Have a good week,
Amanda :) xxx
