Sunday Stash…. 4th May 2014

Ok.. so it seems all I can blog lately is my stash additions! Hopefully the long weekend and my few days off around my birthday next week will help sort that 😉

So… what I have been adding this week…..


Oh yes I’ve been buying from Pink Castle Fabrics from over the pond and really surprised at the speedy delivery one week! I’ve always wanted some DS prints and now I have a chicopee bundle.


Obsessed much?! Been lusting after Jeni Baker’s new line Dreamin Vintage since I first saw it promoted and couldn’t resist a F8 set. Need more pennies to invest in yardage tho. But couldn’t let this one slip.


And oh look some cute quilt labels came with it too 🙂

P1100663What else…. some japanese maroon print, vintage happy, lemon aurifil and polyester threads to go with my dressmaking attempts and oh.. the flora dress…

If you’ve seen me on Instagram (cue to go here) you would have seen some duckegg polka sneak into my stash too and that I’ve added some more sheets to my collection…

It may be brown but ssh I like brown 🙂 and perfect for a backing right?!

What have you all been squirreling away this week? Not much sewing to do as I’m off to get my Nick fix at mums. (Umm… catching up on Grimm!)

P.S- yes something has changed around here and hopefully more soon!

Sunday Stash…. 27th April

Uh oh this week has flown by! Work chaos has left me too tired to do much in the evenings so my to do list went out the window. But it hasn’t stopped me adding stash….


Part of a vintage duvet and pillow case at the back, some fat quarters including cats for the 30s repro collection and the Japanese Monthly Bundle Club. Although…. I’m starting to dislike the calendar FQ- if anyone wants to make an offer for it feel free 🙂


Love Patchwork, Love Sewing, Lori Holt’s Great Granny Squared Book and an embroidery napkin kit from my friend as embroidery I need to learn but not like I need another craft to be addicted to right?!


Yay.. some finds from the car boot on Friday lunchtime. But… that blue duvet at the back right keeps screaming at me to be a dress instead of adding to the things to make for little boys. The front left is actually a maternity dress (and not yet before you ask besides it’s a size small 😉 ) love the fabric.

Today’s spoils… some knitting stuff and some fabric from Trago to be my first test summer dress. Really drawn to the By Hand London Flora Dress at the moment although with this I’m going to have to line the whole thing instead of the bodice. Thinking a vintage sheet I picked up last week could do… then once that’s done I can realise my dream of having a polka dot dress (getting fabric tomorrow thank you hobbycraft sale).

Oh not made any clothes yet.. so this will be interesting as I just know I’m going to have to do full bust adjustments and the like. Right I best crack on and finish the Collette Ginger Skirt first!

P1100651One of my dilemmas of the day (let’s be honest since last saturday!) … so annoyed I didn’t spot the brown mark before I sewn it into rows… do I leave and hope for the best or sub it? That is the question.

Best crack on I’ve got a birthday present to finish (um the last piece to start) ready to gift for tomorrow.

Eek.. nothing like last minute girl yet again. Linking up with Molli Sparkles.
