Sunday Stash #17

19 Oct

This morning this happened:


It was all about the running, my lovely girls completed the Great West Run Schools challenge and Tobit ran his second half marathon in 1 hour 28 minutes and 57 seconds.

This afternoon there might be a chance to sew but for now I can show you some new fabric acquisitions.

I’ve swapped vintage sheet fabrics before with Veronica, and she wanted more.  I saw that she was destashing some Echino so asked if she be happy to swap vintage sheets for those.  The answer was yes and I now have fat quarters of these two lovely prints in my stash.  I don’t know what either of them are officially called and I’m too tired to start looking now so if you know please leave a comment below.

Echino fat quarters

I stashed 4 metres of Kona Snow, no picture to accompany it, some of it’s already been cut and sewn with and I hope to show you the results of that next week.

With the addition of a customs charge of £11.13 (for being less than £1.50 over the threshold) this arrived from Shop Cucire:

Tula Pink Voile

Both fabrics are voile, 2 yards of Lady Bugs Sky and 2 yards Lady Bugs Storm by Tula Pink for some ‘dressmaking’ plans for me.

I’ve backed a quilt using stash this week so feel like additional fabric in the house balances out fabric used!

  1. Congrats to Team Emmens, and love the new stash, a definite reward for standing around all morning watching people run (I used to do half marathons and they’re boring enough to run, never mind spectate at lol)

  2. I loathe those customs charges!! Seriously I always get them and yet some people never do. In fact I try not to buy from abroad now as the cheap fabric is just topped up with the customs charge and then it isn’t such a bargain any more.
