Sunday Stash #180 – Bunny, On the Tree Top
Once upon a time, Grandma Sparkles sent me a Magic Suitcase full of fabric, including a treasure trove of what are now Tula Pink rarities. Funny story, that one. I had no idea what I had been given would become what it is now. For nearly four years, it has all been tucked away in the back of a closet like a time capsule waiting to be opened. Well that waiting is about to come to an end.
If you’re new around here, you may not know that Grandma Sparkles is the best thing since the invention of the rotary blade. She raised me, inspired me to sew, and now lives her life as a single lady in Alabama, USA. She’s not rich, far from it, living on her social security benefits and the part time job she holds at a local kitchen gadget store. That was until she fell off a ladder about two weeks ago and broke her foot. She’s otherwise fine, and the woman knows how to rock a moon boot! However, her social security is now supplemented by worker’s compensation, which she tells me is about $100 per week. Wait, what, how?! As a meagre and steadfast woman, she’s refusing to allow me just to give her cash, so I’m going to do the next best thing. I’m going to sell the Tula Pink fabric she gave me years ago, and give her the proceeds. Consider this the Grandma Sparkles Relief Fund!
Which brings me to this picture. I knew I had yards upon yards of Parisville, with some Prince Charming thrown in for good measure. But then I started searching my own stash, so that I could have a full on Tula Pink blowout sale. I re-discovered the few Acacia and Birds & the Bees fat quarters, the large selection of Saltwater that I never even touched, and even the bits of Nest left over from other projects. I knew they were all there. What I didn’t know, was that I would find a fat quarter of Hushabye in my stash! I have no idea where this came from, as I don’t remember buying it, nor can I find it in my Sunday Stash archive. It must be the Tula Pink fabric fairies! Anyway, this piece, along with many, many others, will be up for sale on Instagram at 11:00AM AEST, Sunday, June 19th, shipping internationally. More details to come, but fabric will be competitively market-priced, with the design to move it out to help Grandma Sparkles!

If you have thoughts about the type of cuts (fat quarters, half yards, etc.) that would be best, leave them in the comments below. However, no complaints about prices, your unavailability at the sale time, or that you dropped your phone in the toilet and I should use a different platform. My fabric, my rules (Molli says with love!) With over twenty pieces across twenty yards represented, this sale is going to be huge!
