Incoming (Sunday Stash)

Another stash addition to report this week. #sorrynotsorry I popped into the Fabricland in Ajax only to discover that they are closing and had started their clearance sales. On the $5/metre table, I scooped up these two quilting cottons. I’m always looking for good modern red prints, and the Ardently Austin by Riley Blake was […]

catching up on stash additions

Not that I have been frugal or anything, but I have tried to slow down my stash additions to more closely align with quilt productions rates (not quite there yet). Of course the best way to get what I wanted under the Christmas tree was to order it myself, and one of the pre-Christmas sales […]

Bundle Buys (Sunday Stash)

So you see, every year we go to Plattsburgh NY for a weekend in September. One opportunity this gives me is to use my duty-free allowance on fabric shipped to the hotel. However this year, with the Canadian dollar around 0.75 to the US dollar, it’s really not worth it to buy fabric in the […]

Quilt Canada Fabric (Sunday Stash)

When I first decided to attend Quilt Canada in June, I wasn’t thinking about the shopping possibilities.  But they were great! I tried to restrain myself by deciding to focus on fabrics which I could use for quilt backgrounds, since up to this point I haven’t stockpiled many large solid or near-solid cuts in my […]

Creativ Influx (Sunday Stash)

Or perhaps avalanche. But worth every penny, you will see. My story starts at the Creativ Festival, April 22. I left work early enough to sit in on Sherri’s trunk show (Thread Riding Hood). Sherri and I met at the Creativ Festival three years ago, when she introduced herself as I browsed through a booth […]

Tula Pink overload (Sunday Stash)

Because if I’m going to do some stash addition, Tula Pink is a good way to do it. This started with the March Bazaar on Massdrop (this is a friends link–if 5 people signup using this link and buy something, they say they will send me a little gift). Bam! A little shopping on my […]

A new Local Quilt Shop (Sunday Stash)

I have been trying to use more stash this year, like many of you, since my storage containers doth overfloweth and I am also trying to finish up projects. But one day, while driving home by myself (because I usually carpool), I made a quick diversion to Annie’s Quilt Shop in Newcastle (Ontario, not the […]

Sunday Stash because I deserve it

Not that I’ve been on a fabric diet or anything, but I decided to give myself a little Craftsy present this past weekend. I can hear you asking why…well, I finally got the promotion I have been working towards! (insert happy dance) Some surprises along the way, it’s for a completely different group than I […]

Late Night Fabric Acquisitions (Sunday Stash)

I love online shopping, and every purchase has a purpose.  Honest.  Cross my fingers (and toes). First up, #glampstitchaswap. I will be swapping a project bag/tote with a new friend at Glamp Stitchalot in November (squee! I can’t believe it’s so close!), hosted by Pink Castle Fabrics in Ann Arbor, Michigan. (Only about a 4 […]

Sunday Stash (Creativ Festival)

A day out, a visit with a friend, and some fabric therapy — win!  I enjoy the learning, sharing, and new ideas too, this year I went to “Steeking without Fear” by Michelle of Stitch Please.  Once I get my wool windowpanes sweater completed, I now have a few tips for creating the armholes. I […]
