#thegreatfabricdestash

I need to make room for fabric that is being stored for me elsewhere and what easier way to do that than with a massive destash. Join me this week (18-24 August) for flurry of fabrics ranging from fat sixteenths to fat quarters, patterns to yardage. I’ll be selling it off through my new Instagram account, so follow me there, then claim the items you want by leaving your email address and zip code. I’ll be calculating shipping and sending invoices next Monday for shipping as soon as the money is received. Hope to see you on IG! IMG_9291

I love a good swap

I joined up with Victoria Wolfe‘s 15 Minutes Play swap this month, my first in so many years that I can’t really remember the last time I swapped fabrics with a stranger.

We set up swap partners in the first week of December and I’ve been gathering bits and pieces here and there. My swapper said she likes smaller pieces and batiks, so she’ll be getting some that I’ve acquired, but never seem to find a proper use for. Plus some fun new fabrics I got just for her. So while, I’ve been gathering, she was super quick and -surprise!- I found a box of fat quarters sitting on my doorstep a few days ago.

I love these bright colors and can imagine making all manner of things for my little nieces. I especially love the blue-green floral. Not sure what I want to do with it, but it will be something just for me.

Thank you, Ellen!

And just for fun, here’s a shot of the box o’ fabric as it landed on the table in my sewing studio. What a mess!

I’ll be so glad to have some extra time in January to get the place back in order and seriously hoping that the injuries from my November accident have healed to the point that I can be active for more than a half hour at a time. Until then, it’s a bit of chaos down there.

Any Fat Quarter Ideas?

So I recently wrote an article about Riley Blake Designs and as a little thank-you, Cindy offered to send me some fat quarters. Super nice of her. Now I have to figure out what exactly to do with them. I’ve looked through a few books specifically for using fat quarters and havent’ fallen in love with anything I’ve seen. Yet. Got any ideas?
