Fabric fast - January status report

Well, I have been a very good girl and managed to comply with the rules of the fast. I bought 1.2 metres of railroad denim to make a dress, and that is all.

That's not to say that I wasn't tempted. Oh no. There were many things I didn't buy. In the interests of completeness (and to remind myself later when I am allowed to buy fabric again), here are some of the things I resisted:

Pretty much all of Up Up and Away

This lovely grey from Annali (can never have too many greys)

Raspberry decapi-kitties (so bloody cute)

And this bundle. Dammit. I want this so bad.

I've also made the pjs for the children, which has the dual effect of decreasing my WIP list by one item and massively reducing the "Muuuuuuuuum, when are you going to make my pyjamaaaaaaaaaas?????" whinging. It's a win-win.

Bring it on, February. I can take it!
