Lately it seems like everything has been working against me. I caught a cold. Shouldn’t be a big deal until I just sort of went splat and just couldn’t do anything. Can just cough and hack and wait….until it’s over with. Head hurting all the time (even now). Sinuses pouring off incredible amounts of stuff that couldn’t have come from my body. Each day I seem to be improving…until the weekend, then I seem to still be at a standstill. And quilting….well, I just haven’t had the energy to go upstairs until yesterday for a few hours. And no quilting (see previous post), so I just cut and cut and cut some fabric for a quilt top. Then we visited a new quilt shop in our area.
Personally, I think we are oversaturated now. There are now 3 quilt shops, a Joann’s, a Hancock’s, a Hobby Lobby, and a Ben Franklin’s–all within 15 minutes of my house. And if that isn’t enough, I am only 35 minutes away from Mary Jos. I have absolutely no trouble getting fabric, notions, machines, eveything. Too much of everything. And so, visiting a new quilt shop, I made a purchase of things I didn’t strictly need. I have always been one for supporting your LQS (local quilt shop), but tell me, how do you decide?
