Oh goodness, it’s Sunday already and I meant to post this last night. Today is my day for Sunday Stash, which raises a really big question – what do I choose?
It’s been so long since I blogged, I’m not sure I even remember how. *blush*
Molli suggests we show recent purchases. That doesn’t narrow it down much for me – I may or may not shop just a little too often. lol
I dug into the stuff I keep buy the sewing machine:
My most recent purchase (Thurday) is Minimalista by Art Gallery Fabrics. I can’t believe I wasn’t sensible enough to stock this.
The purchase prior to Minimalista was from Spotlight and is their current range for Denyse Schmidt. I don’t know what it’s called.
Here’s the downside: I hate the texture of this fabric. The selvedge says “DS Yard Goods for Fabric Traditions” but this isn’t quilting cotton. It’s described as “open weave”. My friend Hilary calls it “gaping weave”. I guess the best way to describe it is that it has a gauzy feel about it. I will find a place for it in a quilt, but certainly not one of the ones I’m using Liberty Tana Lawn in.
UPDATE: A friend did a shrink test of the DS open weave. Huge amount of shrinkage – definitely pre-wash if you intend to use.
Not only but also, there is a giveaway.
A half metre bundle of these four extremely cute prints from Aoi Has 2 Sisters from Alexander Henry. International entries are welcome.
Entries are open until 10:55 am AEST Sunday, 16 February.
(I stole the next bit from Molli. )
Now, show us what you got!
1. Link up a blog post welcoming any new sewing supplies to your stash.
2. If it is fabric from your existing stash that you’ve showcased before, please use new photos with as much natural light as possible, and provide as many manufacturing details about the fabric.
3. Try to leave a comment on at least two other links. We want this to be a safe space for sewing supply collectors, after all!
