Stashing again

I just bought 13.5 yards on sale at Fabricworm. Though I've exercised some restraint recently as I remodel and add shelves to my sewing space, I could not resist RK Lawn for $6 a yard. I want to make lightweight blouses for summer. When?!! I also snuck in 35 yards from Hawthorne and Del Ray. Lots of jelly rolls and complementary stuff.

It seems almost inevitable that I bought a Cricut machine for cutting paper, though I have sworn not to become one of those people who spends a lot of time "scrapbooking." I would be delighted just to have photos in albums. I'm a decade behind in organizing photos. So much so that I don't even bother to put it my New Year's resolutions any more. I bought it because I knew the girls would also love creating cards and paper crafts and we could laugh together and enjoy some crafting time. It worked. I use my longarm machine while they make stuff. Alexandra is making little cards for her boyfriend. There's no love like 16-year-old love, that's for sure.

No judgment here on stash expansion. Or on scrapbooking. I am terribly far behind on organizing photos. Can't seem to negotiate the change in format from film and prints to digital. As for the Cricut, are you trying to entice me to visit you? Throw in some serious ice cream and I can be lured. Hope all is well with you and yours.
