Stash

Oh dear.... not only am I a collecterer of paper, I am now a collecterer of fabric!  lol  I found a new shop yesterday so raced home from work, grabbed the satnav and shot off down the motorway.  I think I was in need of blowing away the winter blues with these colours.


I've always been a fan of green


...then there was this gorgeous sewing themed fabric (and it came in about 4 different colourways!)


and who could resist these crazy guys?! (shades of Daniel Torrente and Jill Penney)

Gorgeous fabrics - I love those greens too. I am trying very hard not to keep buying yarns and threads. I'll never live long enough to use them all!

They're gorgeous! I love the cute monsters. But no, I am NOT going to start buying fabric. :)

beautiful fabrics Carol. I notice a lot of new fabric shops popping up, a good sign I think...we have been deprived for far too long. Not that there are any near me but I can't resist a bit of mail order!

I love those green pieces, the top one is gorgeous!

Love the fabric selection Carol - look forward to seeing what you make with them - or even if they just sit somewhere to look at and stroke every now and then, that works too :0)

Neet said...

Oh - very Stampotique! Fabulous! Must look for a fat quarter of that! I do like the second batch of greens, love those mossy shades - and for someone who says she is not a green fan I do have a lot of green in my stash these days. Not just fabric either.
I can relate to your collecting fabrics - I have started myself and it is just like the paper - comes out, gets stroked and goes back.
Hugs, Neet xx
ps sorry I have not been visiting much, hopefully will be back to full health shortly and then on full steam. xx

oooo dangerous Carol, dangerous .... but such fun, love that first collection in particular. I can't resist fabric either! One of the reasons my craft room is so jam packed - too many crafty interests!!

Looks like you're in the throes of a new addiction, for sure... Love the photo of the greens, serene and calm just as they are - can't wait to see what you get up to with all these!
