Despite the fabricky-booky temptation offered by the internet (and all of you naughty bloggers!) I have not succumbed. I've put a couple of things on my Amazon wishlist but by the time I finish my diet I may decide I no longer need them!
It's made me realise how easy it is to impulse buy and to give in to that rush of excitement when you find that 'perfect' fabric or 'must have' book.
I've managed the need for books by visiting the library for the first time in a few months. The kids and I came home with a dozen or so books, including this one , this one and this one for me.
The first is making great bedtime reading, the second is going to have to become a permanent addition to my own personal Bodleian library and the third has some lovely sewing projects - nothing wildly different but beautiful fabrics and gorgeous photos.
That's the book addiction taken care of.
What about fabric?
Ah....well, that's been taken care of too, thanks to my lovely Fabric Swap partner Natasha :-)
Natasha sent me the most gorgeous parcel of delicious things - including these fantastic fabrics made by Natasha herself! Aren't they fab?!!
Some yummy fabric covered buttons - loving these!
....and feast your eyes on this yumminess - beautiful beautiful fabric!
Thank you so much Natasha - I adore everything you sent and it's been great to meet another lovely blogger :-)
So, with my fabric and book addictions fed, week 1 of THE DIET has been good. What will week 2 bring? Will my resolve weaken? Watch this space!
Now I just need to apply this week's positive mental attitude to the other (and much harder) sort of diet!!!
After I've made (and eaten) some of this ;-)
Have a lovely weekend xxxx
