Okay... I went a little overboard. Take a deep breath, dear readers. You are about to be overwhelmed by fabric-y goodness. Feel free to pet your screen (or come over for a visit, cuddle a twin, and pet it in person).
It all started when I decided I could no longer do without the new Kona colour card and that I deserved a little treat for all the long hours I've been working. LOL.
Don't worry... they're not all for me. I did a public service and ordered on behalf of some of my MMQG
peeps. It's the length of my ironing board - Six pages of Kona-y goodness! If you're looking for one of your own, check out Fabric Spot
(They're found, oddly enough, in the book section!)
And dang it all... didn't some Cotton & Steel fall into my virtual cart? Oops! Oooohhh... ViewFinders!
And then Sew Sisters
had a flash sale... 20% off all yardage. AND I had a gift certificate. A deadly combination to be sure. I started out with a selection of Kona 2014 colours.
Malibu, Titanium, Heliotrope, Grasshopper, and Limelight. And then this caught my eye - a mini Hex'nMore ruler. Do I have a project in mind? Nope! ☺
And then some Ann Kelle prints fell into my virtual shopping basket. How does this keep happening? Those bunnies will make some very cute Easter clothes! And the unicorns? Well, they're unicorns. Enough said.
Flannel pirate jammie pants, anyone? I see some BBBP (Big Butt Baby Pants) in my future! BT is gonna love these!
Ah... kiddie prints have such lovely selvages!
The second installment of my Christmas present from the Z's rolled in too! Another FQ bundle from Fridays Off Fabric Shop
There's Adornit's Patchwork Arrow in White and Acorns Falling in Blue, as well as some Dear Stella Confetti Dots in Tomato. Don't you just love these Lewis & Irene Foxes in Red, Brown, and Grey?
And the lovely owner, Alanna, made a special effort to include some tasty selvages. Talk about special! Thanks, Alanna!
I think my fav of this bundle might be Patchwork Arrow's chevron-y-ness. Reminds me of a certain pillow I've been working on!
And then my actual birthday rolled around. And Patch Halifax
had a SALE! I just happened to be there for a MMQG meeting. This print from Carol Friedlander's Doe line called to me!
As did this Cotton & Steel print on lawn. I've already made it into an infinity scarf! It didn't last 24 hours as yardage (or meterage... we are metric after all!)
Guess what else happens on one's birthday at my LQS? Double discount! Yup... this pile of Kona 2014 colours happened.
Top to bottom: Watermelon, Grellow, Niagra, Astral, Gumdrop, Geranium (and I picked up some Cabbage a couple days later!)
I've got two options here.
1) Blame everything on the Month of the Dark Lord (as February is known at my place of work). It's a dark, dark time and needs the acquisition of fabric to perk things up.
2) Own the fact that I bought myself a big ole pile of fabric-y goodness to celebrate my birthday month.
Either way, I am linking up this colossal treasure trove of fabrics with Sunday Stash
hosted by the incomparable Molli Sparkles!
Yesterday when I stepped out into the March sunshine, it sure did feel like spring was here. We'll see if I need to keep self-medicating with fabric...
