"It takes ages to finish a quilt you're not working on!"

Sunday night.

It has been an exceptionally busy three days for me, so tomorrow I plan to relax with some stitching! I have to wait at home anyway, for my computer to be brought back in working order (I hope), so it is a good opportunity to stay put. I did extremely well at the Guild's Paddy's Market on Saturday morning. I took a box of stitching books, magazines and charts, and put a price tag of $2 on all the books, $1 on all the magazines and 50cents on the charts. I think I sold about two thirds of them. I'll be taking the remaining books up to the bushfire recovery centre soon.
As well as those, I took a box of UFOs and SINS - tablecloths and suppercloths which I knew I would NEVER stitch in this lifetime; doilies and other small items which I've hung on to, thinking I might find a use for them, and a few other bits and pieces. I priced the clothes between $20 and $25, and the smaller items for a dollar each. Most of them sold. All up, I came home with $175!! I was so pleased - firstly because I'd got rid of so much stash that I just didn't want, and secondly because it went a long way toward making up for what I spent at the Quilt & Craft Fair, thus reducing my guilty conscience ;-)
