You were wondering .......


You were wondering what I was going to do with all those lovely spots in the previous post .

Do you think I'm the sort of person that buys fabric just because I have to have it ?

Do you also think I'm just not brave enough to cut into it ?

Well you are absolutely right but I know I'm not alone with this .

I have found the perfect motivation for disrupting my polka pile - a swap!

Not just any swap A Polka Dot Swap !

Stacey over at Polka Dot Daze is having a swap for all the dotty girls and sign ups close in just a few days . If you need a good reason for cutting into your spots stash join in , it's going to be great fun .

I don't know that I can part with any of my "beloved spottys"! (okay, you can stop with the wild snickering at any time now). Seriously!

I know all those spotty fabrics, as I own most, and then see them every time I'm at spotlight! lol I only just had a polka dot swap on swapbot! I hosted it! lol The pink dots look great with that fabric!
I found a heap of back isssues of Handmade the other day, and as I was going through them, found several of your advertisements, including your puppy to make! lol It's great seeing people I know advertised in there!

Now that is cheating. All the rest of us fabric lovers have to just look at our collections. LOL Great swap too.

Thanks for saying hello on Haby G! Dots are the perfect accessory fabric, they go with everything!! My fav is laminated dotted fabric at the moment.

Hi Clare,

Thanks for dropping by my blog. The outcome at the dentist was good, so now onto the crafting. I haven't got any spots yet, but I'm sure they will come one day - have a few baby quilts I need to get started & finished first. The spots go beautifully with the floral, con't wait to see the finished item
