Who ever thought it would be a good idea to let me loose on the Fons and Porter website?
Of course when I went there yesterday to get me a subscription I had to register, so today I get me an email telling me about all the special deals they have.
Yep, you guessed it, I've been spending more money!
I just bought the CDs with a whole years worth of back issues on them! And a couple of magazines.
All up $60 ish dollars, that's before they put the international postage on. Shh, don't tell Hunney. LOL Time I think to make a bit of a hole in this stash of mine, yes it's grown a bit. I have three maybe four projects sat here waiting to be started, I shan't run out of things to do, but I just know a subscription to the magazine and all those back issues is going to inspire me. Keep me going girls.

Speaking of keeping going, yesterday I got 3 hours to sew, so sew was what I did. I got the sashing and corner stones cut for the dragon quilt, then I set to and chain pieced the lot, and my assistant was nowhere in sight.

After playing with the layout I put it all together and cut the first round of border and got that on too. So here's where I'm at now.

I'm hoping to get a second border on today, it's in the same gold colour as the corner stones, I may even get a start on the quilting, then all we have to do is audition black and red for bindings and make a decision. I say maybe because Nerine stayed over last night, and I think Moya may be coming along today, I'm really not sure what is planned, I may have less sewing time than I hope for. So I'm off to make the most of it.

Have a great day.
