Sunday Stash - And She's Back

Oh my, what a long, unintentional, hard to get back in the game blogging break it's been! Oops!

No real excuses, aside from life got the better of me. It's been a crazy busy year and I decided to step back from blogging and even reading many blogs, but that messed with my productivity (though it did make me less likely to buy fabric). But I really need to get back into the swing of quilting and actually finishing stuff, so I'm jumping back into the blogging thing.

What better way to dip my toes back in the water than with a bit of fabric shopping? I'm linking this up with Finding Fifth's Sunday Stash, which is being hosted by Michelle of Squeak Crafts.

Spotlight had 40% off all quilting and dressmaking fabrics this weekend, so I headed up to get some solids for a new project. Turns out that solids weren't included, but fortunately I found a coupon for 25% off solids with their patchwork magazine.

I added a few little pieces to my stash....

Some solids and a few coordinating prints for something skill-pushing I've got planned.

Some low volumes because apparently you can't have enough of those babies.

Some stash builders, because apparently my stash isn't big enough already.

And this little pretty, which is just because it's so pretty and in my favourite colour and embroidery hoops and that's enough reason.

I also bought about 8 metres of light grey homespun, to add to my bolt collection. Really feel like a quilter when there are bolts on the top of the shelves.

And some seriously cute metallic dotty fabric that is super darn cute for skirts for my girls - can't show you that fabric because I've already sewn them into skirts... MIRACLES WILL NEVER CEASE!

Oh, and another couple of bits for my Wombat Stew Secret Santa swap, but I can't show you those either because they are hopefully so just right for my recipient that she'd guess if she saw them. Hopefully.

And that, my friends, is my stash building for this week. Hope your week is full of fabricy goodness too!



  1. Welcome back - you did alright with your purchases Jane. You have had a productive year though.

  2. Welcome back, welcome back, welcome baaaaaack! Loving all your new additions (i think it was fate that I actually typed that as addictions before I realised!). Will be lovely to see what you're up to in a bloggy way!

  3. Ooh so many pretties! Loving those teal colours!

  4. You are such a pretty fabric picker outer :) so glad to see you back in this space!! Secret Santa silence is killing me but I can't show any sneaky peeky as I am sure everyone will know who I have. Happy sewing, both finishing and starting!

  5. I love the teal fabrics, great range of tones :-) Thank you for linking up.

  6. Very nice fabric additions and the skirts have already been made, good girl, being so on top of things.

  7. Oh I love the embroidery hoops fabric!

  8. So much fun stashing. Love the blues. That hoop fabric is awesome.
