Sunday Stash #40 – Get Into the Groove
Well hello there foxy ladies! I’m not sure if you noticed, but I took the last five days off from blogging. It was a quiet respite from the full on blogging every day during the #33 day countdown to my blogiversary last week. I have spent the last few days catching up at my real job (we made a pretty colourful announcement this week), doing some actual sewing, and spending time with family and friends. I went on a Sydney Harbour Cruise last night, and marvelled at the most spectacular view in the world.
The other big news this week: Mr. Sparkles is now on Instagram! It’s all new to him, so please be gentle. You’ll find him mostly taking photos of his Thermomix food, and his daily adventures with me.
Now! Remember a few weeks ago when I casually mentioned that I made a ginormous purchase from Intrepid Thread? Well I meant to show it off, but then I got sidetracked with buying fabrics in Japan, and then buying some more fabrics in Japan. Understandably, my short attention span, was going Gaga over fabric! (We’ve all been there right?) Well now, finally, let me show you the first half of what I bought!
I’d always wanted some Art Gallery Urban Mod of my own, and when it was 20% off the sale price, how was I to refuse?! I’d love to make a quilt using this line–it’s so tonally crisp.
These were some odds and ends that just stumbled into my cart. I mean, Comma, is still holding a place in my heart, and very soon you’ll see more of it emerge from the Magic Suitcase V2.0.
I’m a sucker for Art Gallery fabrics, can’t you tell? If you haven’t felt it up yet, it’s time to run your hands right up that silky drape. That coral Luxe in Bloom is like a delicious watercolour painting that I could swim right through.
Finally, (well, for this post anyway!) I had to stock up on Lizzy House’s Constellations line. I already have some, but again, as these were 20% off the sale price, I decided to round out the collection. These are going to be used for my BGFF, Zach’s, first quilt. It’s still very much a design in progress, but at this stage I’m thinking some sort of wonky star design. He’s a bit wonky himself, so sounds about right!
I’ll show off the second half of this fabric-palooza next Sunday, which promises to include some solid inspiration from one of my favourite designers. Stop back by later this week for some MSBHQAL updates, and what the hell, let’s find out what David Butler’s been screaming out my name for!
