Apparently I like buying fabric. Somehow, if you’re reading this post, I have a feeling you can relate. Lately there seem to be some fab sales and deals going on – which make it worth the $17 postage from the States.
Except when you shop at Fabric Shack and postage is only $8.50. Oh yeah international quilty gals, that’s how you save money so you can buy more fabric! So want to see what I got? Yes, yes you do.
Ooh look pretty pretty Wrenly. I bought a charm pack of this ages ago that I just occasionally pull out and admire. I’ve decided to make myself a quilt with it (oh I just apparently decided while typing this post that the quilt will be for me – my inner quilter is somewhat selfish it appears).
Anyways I got the five top fat quarters to supplement the charm pack, and then the bottom piece is a yard for some kind of pieced back. However it may sit in the stash cupboard for a bit longer while I admire how pretty it all is. And decide on a pattern which I think will include a paper pieced songbird on the back.
Then I got a bunch of solids for when I tackle my grand Iris Garden paper pieced wall hanging. Which again is for me. Yes, I really am that selfish. Can you blame me?
Half yards of Kona in various shades of purple and green. Aren’t they going to look so pretty? Unfortunately I didn’t consider my background fabric to order at the same time. So this hasn’t been started yet either while I ponder what to use for the background.
And because I had room and wanted to fill up the envelope, these FQ’s snuck their way in.
That’s a little bit of Sea Garden from Cosmo Cricket’s Salt Air and a little bit of Ruby from Bonnie and Camille. I need more red and grey in my stash. These fit the bill nicely.
Then of course there were a few bits and pieces from the Travelling Stash that arrived earlier in the week. They were practically free as I traded them out for some bits and pieces from my stash.
Now isn’t that a picture to bring a smile to a quilter’s face. And due to further fabulous sales at Stitches N’ Giggles and Paper Thread Fabrics, there may be a little more fabric on its way. But in my defense – one of those packages I split with Jane, so that’s not so bad right? It’s not all for me! Plus I promise to use it for good and not evil. I may even make something for someone else!! Now to just wait for it to arrive…
Linking up with Sunday Stash over at Finding Fifth. Because we all like to have a bit of a sticky beak when it comes to fabric.
