Stash Building

Look at the pretties that greeted me on my doorstep when I got home today!
These lovlies came from Hawthorne Threads & Etsy
Now, I pretty much adhere to the "I will only buy the fabric I need for a particular project" school of thought.  But...  I also discovered that I love fabrics that are either out of print, or almost, and becoming increasingly unavailable.  I love love love the Sandi Henderson Henna Garden fabric.  I had a fat quarter stack of every color sitting in my Etsy cart, but I decided to sleep on it before purchasing.  When I went back to buy it in the morning, it was gone!  I was so sad!  So into my cart went that half-yard stack of yellow/green/brown/blue/gray, and a yard of persimmon.  I'm still missing the pinks, but I feel better.
The rest of the fabric I already have specific projects in mind.  So it's not too bad, right?  Right??

Oh.  I'm also way too belatedly obsessed with the Flea Market Fancy fabric.  I seriously missed the boat on this one.  However, I am excited to say, that I won an ebay auction for one of my favorite prints, and it was only about $5!  These fat quarters are going for insane amounts of money, so I am pretty excited.  This was the culprit of my online auctioning:

Now if only I could get my hands on some of the "seeds" prints...


  1. Oooo lovely! I'm loving all the aqua and teal (it's my favorite color). And sometimes a little splurge is entirely necessary. :-)

  2. Oh, Carly, you enabler! Haha, love it!
