Finished Quilts

Tuesday, 19 March 2013


... of a fabric nature.  As you know, I'm on a fabric fast, living off of my stash as much as I can this year.  Only I fell off the wagon, big style, with a huge thump.  Gluttony! Shame! The horror! And it all started with temptation put in my way by someone who knew better but did it any way (*cough* JoJo *cough*).  Oh and I had an Enternal Maker gift voucher staring at me from its washi taped place on the wall.

So in the name of full disclosure here's what happened in a mad half hour last week....

to bolster my desire to start making some of my own clothes, a wadge (technical term for waaay too much) of Double Gauze from the Eternal Maker....

beautiful print and great colours

because Kate at M is for Make was practically paying me to take them off her hands, some "in the sale" metre-age (flipping heck!) of Melody Miller....

I love them both (and I have the moth in dark too)  Skirts?  Tops?  Keep forever and stroke from time to time?  So many options!  Actually I've just piled up my MM fabric and it's shocking - I need to do something soon.  Like buy more?  Because that's what I did!

Some sparkly phones from Village Haberdashery, anyone?...

And that's it (apart from some butterfly fabric I bought for my sister to make dresses for Lady G but that doesn't count).  Oh and because I'm a doofus, I had to buy a charm pack to save the Bumblie Bee block I'm making for Tracey.

I feel a little queasy *quickly phones bank to explain*......


  1. Oh you bad lady! ENJOY!
    (think I might have ordered 10yrds of AMH voile from SMS yesterday for $6 per piece - whoops!!!)

  2. Melody Millar is your downfall ;) Nevermind as you saved as you spent! Di x

  3. that doesn't seem like much to me, and you have to take into account the savings you made, then deduct them from the total you spent - that's the LAW

  4. You naughty, naughty lady, i like your style! Beautiful buys, and maybe you should introduce a fabric budget rather than a ban, and you might feel like you get a treat for being good? :o)

  5. When you fell you fell hard!! Hahaha! Loving all your purchases and sorry for putting temptation your way ;) XXX

  6. I just picked up a bit of the bee fabric as well! I'm going to use it to make a skirt. :)

  7. Breathe!! It will all be okay. Calm blue ocean. Calm blue ocean. lol.

    You break a fast the same way I do. :-)

  8. At least you chose TOTAL AWESOMENESS to break your fabric ban. Very very jealous right now :o)

  9. Thank you for another informative web site. Where else could I am
    getting that kind of info written in such an ideal way? I've a venture that I'm just now
    running on, and I've been at the glance out for such information.

    Here is my web page ::

  10. Melody Miller fabric should never be included in fabric diets, that is just wrong!! ;-)
