Today’s Stashtacular post is over at Spontaneous Threads, and there’s still time to get another entry for the $25 gift certificate as well!
How is everyone? I just had to share the last few days with you. You’ll probably hear more about them next week, but I am so freakin excited about my fabric that I had to show you! And no, I didn’t cheat on my fabric diet because I bought them ages ago.
About 2 months ago or so, I started buying fabrics on etsy and having them shipped to my mum in Texas instead of paying international shipping here. She carefully looked after all my packages and never complained that I was ordering too much. I think my mum is one of the nicest people in the world, and you’ll see why. Here’s a pic of my new stuff:
I bought 10 FQs of Quilted Fish’s Sugar and Spice line, a Ruby layer cake (That line is so, so beautiful), a Grace True Cut rotary blade sharpener, 15 FQs + 1yd of Tula Pink’s Prince Charming line, and 300 little 3.5″ squares of I-spy fabrics for making I-spy quilts for my nephews. (The sharpener is awesome!) I bought 2 packs of 100 I-spy charms from Sew Together on etsy, who was kind enough to make them more boy-oriented – only $10 per 100. I seriously recommend her!
Gratuitous close up of Prince Charming:
Isn’t it lovely? I bought the indigo and honey colourways, but when I got them I realised it’s too dark. So I’ll order some of the coral FQs to round it out. BTW, I’ve been searching for a list of Kona solids which coordinate with Prince Charming – I have to order them as no one near me sells Kona solids, and colours are hard to judge on computer screens. So if any of you know the names, please will you leave them in the comments?
We also took my parents to Bath Spa to see the Roman Baths:
Well, I better go as Savi is home from school and needs some attention from her mum. What a chore, right? 🙂
