Sunday Stash – It’s been a long time between deliveries!

It would be fair to say, I have had incredible strength since returning from Tokyo in October.  Yes, I have made a few small fabric purchases here and there, but have not placed a large order since.  Did I want to?  Well, yeah!  But I basically couldn’t justify it.  I have so much fabric, it’s ALMOST ridiculous.  And I have such a small sewing room – it IS ridiculous! So I have made a rather conscious decision NOT to purchase fabric. Until now. … Continue Reading »

Sunday Stash – Tokyo Part Two

Now, where were we?  Oh, that’s right – the fabric!   In total, I returned to Melbourne with 14 kilos of fabric.  Which is quite considerable!  But what I can tell you is this – I was actually very picky about my purchases!  I really thought about the fabric I chose, basically because I knew I’d have to get it home and also be able to fit it in my house.  I’m pleased to say I am very happy with each and every … Continue Reading »

Sunday Stash – Tokyo Part One

It has been two weeks since I returned from my trip of a lifetime to Tokyo.  I had many a plan to blog about my trip earlier than this, however, it took me a week to actually recover from my holiday!!  It was literally exhausting – but incredibly exhilarating!  The one question everyone asks me when I tell them I went by myself on a holiday to Tokyo is “Why?”  Well, I am lucky enough to have a handful of amazing friends I … Continue Reading »

Sunday Stash – The “I’ve been to Tokyo and bought lots of fabric but am so stuffed I can’t show it all to you” edition!

I’m home.  Crawled in to my own bed at 3.30am this morning.  Had a few hours sleep and then have powered on through today – handing out gifts to the kids and husband, sorting all my washing out and then heading to the shops for a SANDWICH!!!! Tokyo was amazing.  Totally and utterly mind blowing.  I promise I will come back when I am more awake and able to type eloquently.  In the meantime, I leave you with this….. Approximately 14 kilos of … Continue Reading »

Bonnie & Camille Aussie Charm Swap – It’s A Wrap!

Well thank God it’s finished Friday!  Here’s a little eye candy for you!  The B & C Aussie Charm Swap has been completed, with all 55 bundles of yumminess sent on their way this week.  There are some very patient (and impatient!) ladies waiting around Australia and New Zealand for their new babies to arrive! All in all, we ended up with 110 different B & C prints  – and they all look stunning together. I’m pretty sure we covered all of the … Continue Reading »

Sunday Stash – Secret Store Unveiled

I took a little trip to Spotlight early last week.  I needed to get some backing fabric for a customer’s quilt order, and I miraculously came out with only that and a metre of shot cotton.  Shocking, I know!  On my drive home, I made a split decision to turn down a road I know leads me to a “little” habby store – because I needed to get a few zippers for cushion backs.  Now, I’ve been going to this store for a … Continue Reading »

Sunday Stash & Dash – The “I have a tax return and I aint afraid to spend it” Edition!

In what will now be known as “the best fabric delivery week ever”, I had two of the best fabric deliveries ever!  Let me get straight to the point….. Exhibit A – When Julie at The Intrepid Thread sends me an email to say she has stacked her sale section AND halved her international shipping for a week – who am I to argue????  I hot-footed it over there and filled that shopping cart like there was no tomorrow.  I think I showed … Continue Reading »

Sunday Stash & Dash – Guilty Pleasures & Other Stuff….

I received a divine parcel of fabric last week, that shall now be known as “the last big parcel of fabric to arrive for quite some time”.  You see, I just happened to book myself a ticket to TOKYO a couple of weeks ago!?!?!?!?!  Yes, you read correctly – I’m going to Tokyo!  This time last year I made a deal with my husband – come tax time 2014 he could get a new fancy television and I was going to Tokyo.  He … Continue Reading »

Sunday Stash & Dash – AMH

My addiction to all things AMH has picked up pace this year.  I have been ordering 1/4 yards here and there when I find some Innocent Crush in a store.  I’ve been gifted some charm squares including Folk Tale from a lovely IG friend and well, just a couple of weeks ago, I decided I would use some of the money I made from my last quilt sale to just jump right in…. This bundle of happiness arrived with perfect timing on Wednesday … Continue Reading »
