Sunday stash ... and gifts :)

I am trying to curtail my fabric purchases in 2015 and use up my (vast) stash ('Yeah, right', I can hear my friend Fran say as I type!) but I did just have to pick up a few fat quarters at my LQS Liberty Bell recently. They don't all have writing on the selvage so I might have to pop back next week! 

I really love the peachy birds fabric - it's by Irene & Lewis who are new to me but now I've found them, I'm going to look at their Christmas stuff - all looks so delicious! The little red love hearts is 'Under the Mistletoe' by Anni Downs for Henry Glass fabrics and the cream low volume fabric is 'Basically Hugs' by Helen Stubbings for Red Rooster fabrics:

A couple of online purchases from eBay too! This cute birds fabric is Sophia by Makower (think the spots is Makower too): 

And some happy mail in the post on Friday from my dear blogging friend Shauna @ lovinquiltin - four delightful Christmas fat quarters - sent all the way from Canada - no reason ... just because:

Thank you, Shauna, you shouldn't have (but I'm glad you did!) Quilters really are the most generous of friends :)

Let's go and see what everyone else has been buying - then I may not feel so guilty!

  1. What a sweet surprise and gift from a quilty friend!

  2. I don't think you have much to feel guilty about although Fran may disagree ;-)

    1. Fortunately Jen is too sweet to publicly shame Rosie and I for the fact that we'll be helping use the stash ;-)

  3. Don't worry, we'll be back soon to help use all that fabric up 😍

  4. I love your peachy bird fabric! Very cute!! Isn't it so much fun to buy new fabric? I love going to my LQS to see what's new and happening. It feels like I'm a kid in a candy shop. So glad my parcel made it to you. I hope you are having a good week so far.


I love reading all your comments, I know it takes time to write them but they make me smile so thank you for dropping by :)
