Last year I would buy fabric at least every week or every other week...I bought heaps. Now I do have a little sewing business, so it was all purchased for a purpose, but still I bought stacks of fabric. This year I really have not bought much at all. 99.9% of my fabric shopping is conducted Online. Due to where we live there is just not much selection, so I shop elsewhere. So I love it when I find a great little Online shop to get my fabric fix from.
Many of you know Kathy Mack from her Blog Pink Chalk Studio Blog. She has a shop too. She made some blocks for the Bush Fire Quilt Project and sent me 6 boxes of wonderful safety pins so we can pin baste all these quilts that are coming together. I dig Kathy. I have bought fabric from her a couple other times, but I want to share my purchases with you this time.
This is the stack of Denyse Schmidt fabric I bought...it was even ON SALE!!!!! WooPeeeeee!!!!
I keep reading all over blogville about how awesome Wonderland is by Momo....well I went ahead and ordered some of that too. It is SEW fantastic! And So very much better in real life. I just can't imagine how awesome this collection must be in a shop all rolled up on the bolt. Gosh I miss visiting fabric shops and wondering around in a daze dreaming of all I could make and what looks great with what....soon I will be back in the real world and one of my first stops is going to be a fabric shop with my mom! Get ready mom...I know you want to look at clothes...but I so very much prefer looking at fabric.
Here is the big Wonderland print all stretched out. Isn't it terrific? I see bags when I look at it, What do you see?
Here is my stack of Pink Chalk Fabric lovelies! Oh and have I mentioned how fast they came? That Kathy is one quick shipper!
Here are all the Denyse Schmidt quilting cottons (I have a bunch of the decor weight from Country Fair as well) that I could find in my sewing room...they look pretty happy together, don't they? I am pretty sure I have more somewhere else...but I just don't know where I stuck them.
I am having to rummage through my fabric collection and try to decide which fabric I am going to pack up and take to Kansas with me and what I will try to find new homes for here. I have so very much fabric....Heaps and heaps of it. At this point I think there is only one more line I am going to buy before we move and that is Far Far Away by Heather Ross....I a quite excited about it. You may ask yourself "Why should you get rid of any of your fabric??" well...we are moving from a 4 bedroom house where I am using one of the bedrooms as my sewing studio to what will more than likely be a 3 bedroom dwelling. It will more than likely be smaller with less closet space.
I have so much to blog about....but so little time! The Quiltathon has been moved again since the weekend of the 11 the room was being used. I should know tomorrow or the next day where and when it will be. Stand by for that information. Also I am back on bags for the rest of the week. I hope to have quite a few ready to mail out Friday! Woopee!!!
