Sunday Stash #107 – Kitty Glitter

And like that, it’s 2015. And like that, I am one year more fabulous than ever! (But aren’t we all?!) I hope you had a celebratory new year full of glittery, shiny whatevers, and overflowing glasses of champagne. I found myself in a small country town a few hours north of Sydney, standing around hay bales during a small but feverish fireworks extravaganza. I don’t normally do hay, but HEEEEYYY gurrrl, this festival was the type that made you want to take off all your clothes and dance like nobody’s watchin–except everybody totally is, and you really don’t give a damn!
I mean, if this was your DJ, you’d totally be glitter-envious too, right? RIGHT?! This fabulous creature is drag-DJ-diva, Kitty Glitter, and if I said last night a DJ saved my life, well, I would not be lyin’ for tryin’! I do think we could be sisters from a different mister (no red heads in my family). I bow down to her ferocity, and aspire to be a slice of her heaven here on Earth! She also calls her friends and fans the Glitterati, so imagine if we joined forces the beautiful havoc we could create! So yeah, my new year involved a whole lot of ass-shakin, booty-poppin, wig-snatchin’, and disco-diva-dancin’! I wouldn’t have it any other way.

But yes, Sunday Stash, you’re here for the fabric! Remember when it was the Black Friday sales and we all went cray-cray-crazy? I dare say I haven’t even shown you a lick of the things I bought from Intrepid Thread. That’s mostly because I’ve obviously been a bit consumed with the #SewingForSydney project (with exciting updates on that coming this week). Well, I’ve managed to dig some of the new arrivals out from under hashtag blocks! I scored the last of the yardage of Carolyn Friedlander’s Widescreen in Yarrow and Flame. It’s 108″ wide, so it is perfect for quilt backings.

Then I grabbed four yards of this Kate Spain, Solstice – Embellishment in Icicle to use on the back of my I Hate You So Much Right Now quilt that I promise is still in progress. I have days where I’m going to leave it as is, and other days where I’m going to shred it and start again. I still think I can elevate it to something fabulous, but I’m kind of scared of getting it out of the closet. Oh, and I’m sure you’ll recognise this Anna-Maria Horner, Pretty Potent – Echinacea in Outloud. I’m usually not an AMH fan, but I love this odd brown and pink pairing, and would love to see it as an expansive quilt back. So I bought four yards of it as well to go with a fat quarter bundle I have of the whole range. Always be prepared!

So that’s enough from me! I’d love to hear what the Glitterati got up to for new year celebrations, and if you have any new fabric additions you’d like to share. As for resolutions? Stuff that! Just sparkle on with your already fabulous selves!

    Sounds like a well deserved new year celebration. Excellent stashing, I quite like having to wait a while for stash additions from sales across the other side of the world, although I'm waiting for 3 parcels right now…

    Whoo hoo! Major score at Intrepid Thread. Espcially on the widescreen! 🙂 Kitty Glitter's outfit is making me think of KISS for some reason. LOL! Can you imagine getting her and Gene Simmons together on stage?!

    Happy New Year!

    Aren't those widescreens great? I have it in the darker blue and the orange for some quilts in progress. I guess they're a little more boring than some people's pieced backs, but honestly I hate spending the time piecing a fancy backing when I just want to get going on the quilting.
