Sunday Stash #64 – Beep. Yes, Again.
“Hey, my lovelies! Yes, I’m traveling again! But this time, I’m on my way to something really special! I’ve got my sequinned shoes on, and I’m somewhere over the Pacific Ocean bound for the Intrepid Thread. You can catch me there at 3pm on Sunday, and we can shop and par-tay together!
This week Sunday Stash is hosted by Ms. Sarah from Mila + Cuatro. I do hope you check out her blog and link up some of your own stashed goodies. As soon as I land, I know I will be!
A couple of weeks ago, I did a fabric swap with IG: goneaussiequilting for some AMH Field Study Specimen in Royal Purple that I had stashed away for no good reason. In return I received these two amazing fat quarters of fabrics I am much more likely to use. The irony is that I bought that AMH as a total impulse buy when I was at the Intrepid Thread last year. It was meant to be!
These next two photos are of fabrics that were a total shock to little miss me. When I wrote my costing article for Sew Mama Sew, I did it purely because they were interested, and I had more to say. After I submitted it, I found out it was going to be sponsored by Contemporary Cloth, and with that came a $60 gift certificate. I best be writin’ more often! Big glittery hugs to Sondra for her generosity!
So I stalked her shop for a few days and finally decided on buying these half-yard cuts of Art Gallery Pure Elements and these two-yard cuts of Essex Yarn Dyed Linen. I’d been scoping that linen out for a while (will make a perfect accompaniment to all those Japanese fabrics I’ve been collecting!) so I’m thrilled I finally got some in bulk. For all you experts out there, does it combine well with normal weight quilting cotton? Any advice before I start cutting it up? Quilt worthy?
Okay, I’m probably onto my third bloody mary by now, so wish me safe travels, a fabulous par-tay, and make sure you visit and link up with Sarah at Mila + Cuatro! Byeeeee!”
P.s. Was that the longest message ever?
