Ahh, this last week had a bank holiday weekend, and it was the first weekend in months that I didn’t have a single other thing to do (not that I didn’t have options, I was just good at saying no!)  My next few weekends are busy again (although for the life of me I can’t remember what I promised I would do on the 6th September – anybody?  Anybody?), so this weekend I luxuriated in the 3 whole days to do as I wished.

On Saturday I perused my newly delivered Quilt Now magazine, then meandered on through an 8 month backlog of magazines that had lain unread.  That inspired 8 new pattern designs that I noted down for future use, as well as a clearout of old mags to take to the recycling at the tip.  On Sunday I started making the bag from my Sew Fine Fabrics, which in turn inspired my first ever video review/demonstration thingy, which will appear later this week.  Finally, on Monday, I learned how to edit said video, and wrote up a few things, and started pulling and cutting fabrics for my stop on the Craft Buds blog hop.
