what more fabric?!

It appears more fabric yumminess has jumped through my letterbox this last couple of days. Ooops!

I'm thinking this has to be it for a while, unless I need specifics for finishing projects, as maternity pay barely covers the household bills never mind the luxury of new fabric. Boo!

I simply couldn't let the Fat Quarter Shop's limited time offer of 50% off Amy Butler's Lark pass me by now could I? I opted for the Glamour FQ bundle and then 3 yards of my favourite print to hopefully make up a Wiksten Tank. Though currently there's a monsoon occurring here with heavy localised flooding so it appears I need a new raincoat more than a summer tank top!!


I also got another bundle from Pink Castle Fabrics as Brenda had put Lizzy House 1001 Peeps into the sale section at a mere $6 per yard! I got 2 yards plus a yard of Kona Grey to finish up my Spring Carnival EPP cushion - more on that another day! I always think when buying from the USA that to get good value from the recently increased postage charges, I need to fill my mailing envelope!! Hence the half yards of other stuff in the bundle!!!

I've also received my 1st months fabric from Amitie in Australia as I'm doing their Gypsy Wife BOM too. I've got the fabric cut and ready to sew when the baby is next asleep.

I've managed to squeeze in some time making these cute hexies from Kate Spains new line Cuzco, it's not due for release until October time I think but a little birdie gave me some scraps as the colours are ideal for a certain Framed Purse Project I'm working on!

Anyhow it's the weekend in a matter of hours and I'm spending it on a Brain Boosters course with Holly - what are your plans??? Anything exciting??

PS: sorry about the crappy corners on my pictures - must've forgot to tick the right box & no time to go change now. Argggh!


  1. Gorgeous fabric and the hexies are rather nice too. Di x

  2. Hope you have a fun time with Holly - think I'll be dodging showers and stitching my Spring Carnival in the car!

  3. Oh yummy stash! I'm amazed how much you're getting down whilst on maternity leave - I would still be zombie like sleep deprived at this stage. Thanks for the lavender bags order :) Bethx

  4. Yummy fabric. Lark is such a winner!

  5. It's true, there are other people, other than me, that shop till they drop! Beautiful haul :) Have a fun weekend!
