Sunday Stash #231 – Ska-Bopping
Rise and shine, it’s Sunday morning! That’s how I felt today as I rolled out of bed and zombie-walked to the coffee machine. My head was all “Let’s do this!” and my body was all, “Just five more minutttttttesssss.” Fortunately, head won, because now that I’m eight coffees in, today is going to be a fabulous day! I’ve put on some old skool No Doubt music, and I’m ska-bopping around the house.
What’s not to love when you’re surround by gorgeous fabrics such as these? My latest acquisitions include a few Cotton + Steel prints from 2015, and a Mark Hordyszynski for Michael Miller print from his Birds of a Feather range. I’m still trying to amp up my novelty fabrics collection, so I’m duly prepared for the novelty rapture. I wouldn’t want to be left behind simply because I didn’t have any teal kitty-kat-tigers in my collection. You’ve all been warned!
Have I told you lately how much I’m loving my fabric folded onto comic book boards? Well, I am. (That’s a little foreshadowing for what I want to show you next week!) So these two fat quarters were some geometric gems that I couldn’t leave behind. I’m not sure who they are, but I’m getting all shades of Bonnie & Camille and David Butler. Can you imagine if they got together and made sweet fabric love? It would either be a really ugly baby, or one of those that are so unusual they become supermodels. I digress.
But hey! Check this madness out! First, I find a Carolyn Friedlander Doe fat quarter scrummaging though the fat quarter bin at Sing Mui Heng. But then, I rounded the corner to the sale rack, and I find a whole bolt of Ladder Lines in Yarrow! I need more fabric backing like my fat ten-year-old-self needs another cupcake, but you know I bought five yards! I usually just buy four yards for fabric bakings, but at $6 per yard, who’s counting?!
So these are what I brought to the table, what about you? No need to hide, I can’t wait to see what you stashed this week!
