You may remember if you’re a regular reader that at the very beginning of the year I made a commitment to no fabric purchases.
To keep us on the straight and narrow there is a monthly check-in; time for reflection, confession (really?) or to weep at the thought of no new fabric.
Ok so maybe that was a bit dramatic, I for one have had a great month; I like a challenge and I have bought absolutely no fabric this month. But there are ways and means; this dropped through my letter box one day:
Oh yes that is Mousey Mouse by Lizzy House (don’t you just love that rhyme?) and some Seaside by October Afternoon and Dear Stella – lucky me. Or maybe I should confess that actually the very lovely Jo sent it to me for the Dress a Girl Around the World event I’m organising in a few weeks time. I’ve said it now so I can’t just sneak this all off in to my own stash, there will be pictures of dresses before the end of February I hope.
I had an envelope of gorgeous squares from Fran after she put out a request for a swap for her economy blocks, I sent her a pile of squares too:
This weekend I found time to make my first block too. In fact those lovely ducks are from the #greatukfabricdestash my friend Jo bought them as part of a scrap bag and I begged the ducks from her, in return she chose something from my scrap boxes.
On the subject of destash, I rehomed some of my stash last week on IG, it was so good to sort through my stash (it’s looking much tidier) and I hope that the fabric is off to responsible fabric lovers who will sew with it! (no pressure ladies!).
After the destash I also did a fabric swap of some of my unsold fabrics with Pennydog – I’m just waiting for mine to arrive. There are still some fabrics left in my IG photostream if you fancy looking.
So all in all a pretty great month for moving fabric on and new stuff – can’t wait to see what February brings!
