Sunday (Monday) Stash…

So it’s a little late for this post but hey ho. Got an amazing addition to show you this week!

Technically it’s not “stash” but something to use it up! Isn’t she gorgeous?

Brother Innovis 350 SE (2)A Brother Innovis 350 SE and look a computerised screen..

Brother Innovis 350 SE (1)I’m not ashamed to admit it took me bout half an hour to work out how to wind the bobbin, load bobbin and top thread (with aid of manual). One day I might actually preset a setting to remember where the needle goes for that pesky quarter inch.

She has loads of features including a knee lift (untried yet) but as I have a backlog of sewing to catch up on due to previous machine tantrums… it might be my week off next month til I get a proper play at all it can do.

DZ Oh Betty FabricNot to worry I did stash some amazing fabrics too (Darlene Zimmerman Oh Betty in the top and in the bottom a range of Denyse Schmidt, Flurry and a host of other designers) but now I neeeeeeeeeed to behave and use up some of what I have! One sneaky order this week and that’s it… as I want to get a craft lamp and a table so I can use my cutting mat upstairs near the machine…

Now to go enjoy some more of this sunshine πŸ™‚ Hope everyone has a lovely week! Linking up with Molli Sparkles.

Sunday Stash…

This weekend is going by in a blur.. I kinda wish it was Friday already for the next one! Lots of visiting family and sadly brought work home to do which is giving me a headache.

Ah well…. but look what arrived yesterday!

P1110141

Isn’t it gorgeous- the lovely Rebecca at One Wee Bird helped me get these πŸ™‚ I love DS and can’t wait until payday to nab some of the Hadley line that is over here which I wouldn’t have seen yet if Kerry didn’t get there first.

Then on Friday as work was making me get grumpier by the second I drove out to my work quilt shop for some therapy………….

P1110142

Oops… but at least I was well behaved right? The foxes are going to make it into the EPP quilt that I’m currently working on which the deadline is fast creeping up..

I made up for it by being very naughty today on the Fabric Guild website… but I needed a treat after THREE hours of mind numbing data checking for work. Some of it though is to add to my Christmas Makes list.

Hope everyone is having a more relaxing weekend than me. Linking up with Molli Sparkles Sunday Stash.

Sunday Stash…

Well it’s been payday around here so I couldn’t resist some small additions right?!…..

P1110100

Some lovely vintage fqs from Mary Emmens, Liberty Charm Pack and F8s from Duckegg Threads, some FQs from an IG Destash and I reallllllllly needed that 60 degree triangle ruler and isometric pad!P1110101

All of these are from Sew and Quilt πŸ™‚P1110102Then friday I went to my local quilt shop… big mistake look what I came away with!! The cats jumped in at the till… and I still need find time to read the new issue of Homespun.

I do have plans for all this really! And If you noticed on IG this morning the linen had been chopped and prepped for a spot of embroidery πŸ™‚

Happy sunday all! Linking up with Sunday Stash over at Molli Sparkles.

Sunday Stash…

I have no idea what I have done with this week apart from work and sleep. It’s not been a great one for me sewing wise with being constantly wiped out!

But.. look what has arrived this week!!

P1110075Over the summer I pattern tested for Elizabeth from Oh Fransson those cute hedgies and this week the most amazing thank you gift arrived! Printed patterns and a Kona Charm Pack. My hedgies are almost quilted… I’m still at the stage of deciding to live with what I’ve done or rip it all out and start again (the quilting that is!)

P1110076I also couldn’t resist these two bundles of vintagey goodness from Mary. Don’t they play well together? Hopefully… some point soon this will actually be a quilt for moi.

P1110077

Sneaky peek of what I am currently working on and hoping to link up with Le Challenge in time for this month…. Guess I better get back to it! And finally watching some more eps of the last season of Fringe whilst I’m at it.

How is everyone’s sunday stitching plans going? Linking up with Molli Sparkles…

A finish and some naughtiness…

Right first off the good thing! I actually did finish ONE whole project from my Q2 Finish Along list. The rest well umm… I did start and finish a few other projects though!

So here’s is my vintage sheet cushion πŸ™‚ I have a quilt in this style too waiting to be rebasted before being quilted. One day soon…

P1100873

Now on to the naughtiness.. I’ve added to my stash eek. But I couldn’t resist some beauties from Sew and Quilt now could I?! Also had my Blossom Heart Quilt monthly bundle.

P1100859 P1100857 P1100861

And this…. some screen printed panels from the talented Jen.

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. After a crazy few weeks at work I have a week off!

Hannah.x

Just a quick update….

… I’m still here! The past few weeks has been a little manic between work, nursing a poorly husband and falling ill myself!

Anyway better late than never the winner of the Sunday Stash Giveaway is number 16: Lucy from Charm About You πŸ™‚
SS WinnerNow I’ve been really really good lately and only added these to my stash.. 30s repros is still a must right?!

P1100852

In addition to signing up for FoQ (need to make and send off within the next month!) I’ve also said I do a special quilt for a little girl’s first birthday… forgetting said birthday was 3rd July. But not too bad I’m doing my own variation on a design been planning to do for ages and this is going to be in the center.

 

P1100849I figured aqua make a nice serene background forΒ  a change just hoping that it works! There will be a fair bit of aqua along with some bright pinks, yellows and maybe some blues if I can work it in… Just to say bunnieeeeees and rain πŸ™‚

Also another quilt block on my list is the great granny square by Lori Holt. I have the book and had the itch forΒ  awhile I just knew these Country Girls FQs. I need more in the range tho! Just need to work out what other fabrics I can throw in to coordinate with this.

Sunday Stash and Giveaway!

Hello! I’m here hosting Sunday Stash this week! *waves* if you’ve popped over from Molli Sparkles

Molli Sparkles

Technically I am on a fabric diet (with some very loose limits) but it didn’t stop me adding to stash πŸ˜‰

P1100809

Ok so this bundle is part of the Blossom Heart Quilts Japanese club… and I love it totally me and super cute right?!

P1100808

On a bit of a dressmaking obsession at the moment.. see fabric and automatically think skirts so added a top pattern and some more invisible zips!

P1100811

What I’m working on today are these… although think I’m going to switch the blue to the green though! Last minute baby gift.

Now… onto the giveway there’s a bit of a mixture here some treasured, some new additions to my stash which I am sharing with you as a F8 bundle. Along with some polka dots and some other notions. Aren’t the macaroons and post stamps adorable.

P1100807

So.. what have you got to show about your stash? Leave your links below for a chance to enter the giveaway πŸ™‚

Sunday Stash… 18th May

Right it’s that time of the week again and oops I do have more to show you. Technically this might be my last major stash additions for a bit as I’m going on a fabric diet! (More on that another time as you are here to drool right?!)

P1100793

My naughty purchases with some birthday money…. Barcelona F8 set and the top three from my local quilt shop. The pink was in the remnant bin at a bargain price… it called to me and when I got home I realised it was actually part of the Lecien Old New 30s range one I’ve not seen before and do not have! Love love love, on another note if you have any from this range pretty pretty please can I buy or swap πŸ˜‰

The other two pieces are FQS, middle- Button Tree Lane of Henry Glass Fabrics. This is to finish off a long overdue gift… And the other is earmarked for some Post Circle goodness and is Postcard Garden of Red Rooster Fabrics.

P1100796

Friday was the lunch time car boot down Falmouth (where I work) and being such a lovely day it did bring out a few people! Managed to get these for bargain prices- all cottons and most of the pieces large enough to do clothes! The daisies top right think I ear mark for a skirt? And hopefully enough left for a bag.

P1100798

The top left is part of a bed set I scored at the car boot as well, the pillowcases are already earmarked for my next Ginger incarnation. I finally added some Beatrix Potter to my stash too and the bottom… were gifted to me some lovely scrap pieces and Free Spirit FQS. Aren’t they lovely?

Next week I’m hosting Sunday Stash with a fun giveaway too! So check on back πŸ™‚

Hope everyone is having a fab weekend. Linking up with Molli Sparkles.

Sunday Stash… 11th May

Well… what a week. I’ve also decided to try a fabric diet for a while.. so the following whilst arriving this week were actually ordered ages ago.

Well apart from these.. but as it’s screenprinted panels I can be let off right?!

P1100715

Not quite sure what to do with these yet.. am thinking maybe a sewing machine cover and a mini wallhanging to add to my collection πŸ™‚ Emily of Strawberry Patch created these and she has some left including bags. Pop on over to have a nosy.

Couldn’t resist these bits and pieces to add to my stash! Thinking the Red Riding Hood panels make a fab skirt for a little girl and one of the FQs on the let is for a current WIP.

P1100714

You might have seen.. my vintage addiction growing recently and so I was amazed at how much I was sent here are a few of my faves including Paddingon Bear and some 5″ squares

P1100716

Taking a peek at some of the others…..

P1100717

Phew think that ought to keep me going for a while? Tomorrow I’m joining in with the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day so do pop on back πŸ™‚

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 πŸ˜‰

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

P1100658

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.

P1100659

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.

P1100661

And oh look some cute quilt labels came with it too πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚ 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!)
