Building up the stash...

Sooo, you know how we often make resolutions at the beginning of the year and then sooner or later we just happen to forget about them?  I had this brilliant idea in January (I blame the cold weather) to only use fabric from my stash this year, meaning no major fabric purchases for me.  Well, I didn't so much forget as blatantly ignored my resolultion, I mean, who can resist the siren call of fresh fabric?

Take a peek at some of my purchases this month.  And yes, I've been very, very, naughty.  So much so, that I think my daughters are about to confiscate my credit card! :-)


It all began with two, teeny tiny, itty bitty fat quarters.  I mean, are those little birds adorable or what??  I just had to take them home, and I couldn't very well leave the dotty fabric there all alone either...

...and then I saw this delightful fabric with it's gold and orange tones on a muted turquoise background..

...and this Denise Schmidt fabric was just too much fun...

...and these grey's were just calling my who can say no to that?

These lovelies arrived in the mail a week ago, I ordered this from Sew Sisters.

I love the look of these oversized zigzags... these are very much outside my comfort zone...eek!

A fun neutral with grey and white dots on a black background.

And these are my Kona solids, I'm a member of the Kona solids club over at Sew Sisters and each month I receive four different fat this is what I've received since I joined last September.  No clue what I'm going to do with them, but they sure are pretty to look at!


  1. Looking good! You are sew lucky to have Sew Sisters to order from! I'd love to get Kona solids sent once a month.

  2. The same thing happened to me. I was very good about using my stash for the first three months of this year, but I've been to a quilt show and a fabric shop or two and I'm afraid I've fallen off the wagon. But at least I'm still ahead.
    We all need some retail therapy once in a while and your fabric purchases are lovely!

  3. We all made that resolution. But then I saw a sale, and I just HAD to fill the flat rate envelope. I was being frugal. And so it goes. I love your purchases, don't tempt me!


I love hearing from you - thanks for leaving a comment.
