Oh dear, I have to confess the stash/shop is growing. Remember just a few months ago I posted pics of my fabric cupboard? Well, I'm happy/sad to say that there is no free space anymore. Totally chock-a-block full. I really need to start sewing more and buying less!
Which is really difficult when there are so many lovely ranges coming out over the next month or so. My favourite at the moment is Joel Dewberry's "Aviary 2". I love everything about Joel Dewberry and his cute wife, Laurie. To make matters worse, he has just previewed his new range "Heirloom" at Quilt Market in Salt Lake City and it is really pretty...
I've just finished making a Versatile Wrap out of the mustard bird fabric...beautiful for winter.
I'm not much of a purple lover, but it seems to be growing on me and I love it mixed with aqua below.Also made a Wrap out of the black damask below:
When I was in Melbourne last week I popped into Textile Offcuts in Lilydale while I was waiting for Jaron to finish some work (thanks for the referral Karen!) I wish I had some specific projects in mind as I find it hard to purchase apparel fabric without a cause, but I did spot a bolt of houndstooth print fabric so bought a couple of meters for the stash :)
I love Carolyn Gavin's range, Spring Street and stocked up on a few of my favourite prints.
And then there's Sherbet Pips...I have to be honest, this range doesn't grab me like it does other people. It's cute, but I'm just not sure what I'd do with it. Didn't stop me though! I know that in about 12 months when it is hard to buy I'll be wanting a bit, so got it while I could now!
On a side note...I'm working out my Cool Shop schedule for July/August - if you are interested in becoming a Cool Shop and advertising on my blog for free, read here for more information and send me an email! toni (at) makeitperfect . com.au
