I have been very slack on sharing my recent stash acquisitions. Mainly because it was a bit crazy how much fabric I had arrive all in a very short amount of time. A little embarrassing perhaps. However my fabric bender is pretty much done (I say pretty much as there is still a parcel or two on its way!). Now I really have to get busy and use up some of this fabric!
Here’s my Fabric Shack order:
I love Fabric Shack. Half price international shipping! So we Aussie girls really make the most of it (there are another 5 FQs that belong to Kelly that were packed into this parcel!).
All the solid fabrics up the top are destined for the big 90th birthday quilt for my Nan – though I have pinched a few for a current project. And some novelty prints for upcoming bees and some that are just because I couldn’t resist! Mostly 1/4 yard cuts but turns out 1/8th cuts are pretty fun to get a little sample of fabric too. Plus – you can fit more variety into a package with smaller cuts!!
I have been good on my charm pack indulgences of late and only added one new to the collection!
No plans yet but it’s so pretty!
I also received some of my prize fabric from the Texting While Sewing competition! Some fab alphabet prints from the Summersville Line from Marmalade Fabrics. They were so prettily wrapped too!
And then my Seaside Cottage bundle (which I posted about the other day but it deserves another look!!) which I got from Sprightly Fabrics. There was a bit of a muddle up with my order so Monique kindly added a little bonus for me too (thinking new ironing board cover with the chevron?!).
So whew! No wonder my fabric cupboard doors won’t shut. Mr 5 attempted to close it and I explained it wasn’t possible as I had way too much fabric. His reply “But Mummy, you make such beautiful things with your fabric!”. Yeah his future wife is going to thank me (plus he changes the toilet roll with no prompting! I’m raising him to be one of the “good ones” hehehehe!). Right well that’s enough fabric sharing, now for more sewing.
