I know I know - I have been missing in action for soooo long and then all of a sudden I turn up with a Sunday Stash post on a Thursday! The hide of me!
I am sure you all understand how life just gets in the way some times - unfortunately for me, it was a couple of months worth all together! Plus not to mention that I happened to stumble across the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway week - which took me what seemed like a whole 100 bag box of tea to go through. Fingers crossed that I win something. If you haven't entered, head on over to the Sew Mama Sew page and enter one or two or hundreds - but be quick cause it ends soon.
Anyway, enough rambling Kel - get to all the good stuff that you have been shoving into the already overflowing cupboards of fabric of late.
Just a little warning that this post is very heavy on photos!
My Pezzy Print Jelly Roll arrived from Busy Thimbles - so now I can start the Squared Out pattern designed by the owner - Judy Hansen! Not quite sure who this one will be fore - but it was just one of those quilts that I just had to do!
A new revamped Australian Homespun arrived as well. I got a subscription as a Christmas present and I am totally loving the fact that it arrives in the mail and I don't have to go in to town to buy it. I am still not sure on the recycled paper feel of the pages though - but it is still brim full of total inspiration.
These two lots were brought from The Wellington Patchwork store when the kidlets and I were down that way for the school holidays. The two Marmalade Charm packs are flannelette and I am hoping to team it with some plain flannelette to make a nice lap quilt. The bag pattern and FQ - were just too cute to resist. LOL
This butterfly fabric and matching button is destined to be a new Coffee Snuggly, as it seems my darling sister has lost the one that I had previously made for her.
OK - now are you ready to see what $50 in an Op Shop can buy you?????
I am still over the moon with my bargain buys.
2mts of light pink pattern & 1mtr of the monkey print - both are quilting cotton weight.
All of the above are FQ's and came in a bag for only $6.00 including the Strawberry Shortcake ones!
Some more quilting weight cotton and flannelette - all FQ size or bigger.
Some Mary Engelbreit fabrics - all well over the 1mtr mark.
Some red velcro (both sides), some wooden cotton reels to add to my collection, purple guiterman thread and some patterns.
More flannelette - 1 mtr of the monkeys and 2mtrs of the turtles.
and last but not least, 2mtrs plus of some bright red terry toweling, which I am going to use to back some bibs with etc.
I am pretty stoked with all my goodies, all of this was from 2 different Op Shops!
I did go back again this Monday - but I will save those goodies for the next Sunday Stash.
I am linking this Sunday Stash post up to the lovely Fiona from Finding Fifth.
