To be fair, I did do *some* mending before I broke out the new fabrics. I also made the inside liners for a dozen new cd cases, so I haven't completely forsaken the Giant Pile (now the Medium-sized Pile). I've had a rekindling of the quilting bug though; a well tuned sewing machine is a siren call to hard to ignore (I haven't even tried). I've done so much rotary cutting today that I almost have a blister on my hand. This is my favourite part of quilting. Crisp little squares all lined up ready to be chain-pieced. Delightful stuff.
