Sunday Stash #23 – Magic Suitcase 08 – Leftovers
A few odds and ends stumbled into Grandma Sparkle’s Magic Suitcase right at the very end. They were surely screaming, “No fabric left behind!” as they clawed houndstooth and nail to join the rest of their fabric friends. These Garden Gifts fat quarter packs seemed a bit garden party hoe-down, but upon closer inspection there was a great tone on tone print hidden in each.
You know how I feel about brown (similar to most of you), but it’s good to have it in your stash, and one day I will prove that it can be used with elegance and poise. It doesn’t all have to be clunky and poo inspiring. By the way, is that an Amy Butler Midwestern Modern print, or am I dreaming?
My waistline knows I love a good cupcake (with sprinkles on top), but do I need a cupcake basket? Mmm, I’m thinking, no. I think I’ll save this one for a future giveaway, swap, or sewing treat for someone more inclined. Now, maybe if it came with replenishing cupcakes I’d be more interested, until then, gimme French vanilla, red velvet, double chocolate, and cream cheese topped carrot cupcakes.
Oh, do not even think I am tempted by these … yet. I absolutely must finish my current
three four five (I think that’s all!) works in progress before I start on a project that will undoubtedly take decades to finish. I love all the hexie projects I see out in the wild, but I know (like most of you) I’d become obsessed by them, and anything else would undoubtedly fall by the wayside. I’m sure I’ll get around to them about the time they go out of fashion. Typical.
There will be one more instalment of Grandma Sparkle’s Magic Suitcase, where I unveil some truly magical pieces from one of your favourite designers. She’s colourfully prolific, and has many collections, two of which travelled from the midwest to be with me today.
I must also apologise for my somewhat absence, but #bloombloompow has basically taken over my life. For good reason though, as Freshly Pieced’s Lee recently commented, “Stunning! The dark background really works! … Ooooh! Can’t wait to see more!” I’m hoping to unveil said progress this Wednesday, if you’re lucky.
Linking up with Fiona at Finding Fifth for this week’s Sunday Stash-a-thon! You should do the same.
