Sunday Stash #36 – I should have specified.

Oh, honey, no. 
I must have used up all of this month’s fabric karma with last week’s Liberty acquisition. You see, I recently asked a friend traveling to Japan to pick me up some fabrics. I should have been more specific. 
What I received weren’t some local, quilting cottons, no, no, no. Instead, he brought me enough sateen to make us all kimonos. Normally, I wouldn’t mind so much, but I already have three kimonos–pink, purple and silver with bronze dragons. I don’ts needs another one.

Now y’all know I’m an equal opportunity quilter, but I have got to draw the line somewhere! Plus, the threads left behind from these babies are like threads on steroids! Not only are they huge, but they stick together and to everything. I think they are mutating because I keep finding them on my quilting cottons trying to take over the rest of my stash. Get, get out!

Hehe… after that glowing review, these might be perfect for the You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling linky party coming up on August 24th. It’s basically a Fugly Giveaway & Swap brought to you by Charm About You and Quokka Quilts. So sadly, you’ll probably see these fabrics (hopefully) one last time.

Linking up with Fiona at Finding Fifth Midge at MsMidge for this week’s Sunday Stash-a-thon!
You should do the same.     

Just, no.

    Bahahahah! It's always hard getting someone else to buy fabric for you! I was absolutely astonished and thrilled with my Tokyo bff's fabric buying – considering she had never bought an inch of fabric in her life! Thanks for linking up! x

    Oh, heavens. The devil is definitely in the details, as they say. Sometimes you really need to spell out exactly what you want. At least you can have fun with them for the Fugly Giveaway & Swap.

    Oh well, you win some, you lose some! My mum and dad brought me 4 half metre cuts of kind of pintucked shirt-like fabric back from India last year. Apparently my mum couldn't make the guy understand what she really wanted, so went with that. Of course. It's absolutely useless, not enough for clothing, utterly unsuitable for quilting, and not a fricking clue what else it would be good for o.O
