Wow! Sunday again, and I never did get round to showing you the presents I’d made – sorry about that. Had a few problems, which I promise I will tell you about later on in the week.
Anyway, back to this weeks stash post. As you may recall, last week I told you all that I’d decided to go on a fabric diet. – Well, guess what? I’ve actually managed to stick to it! (Well, pretty much, anyway) This is really unusual for me, so I must admit, I am feeling quite proud of myself! 🙂
It does also mean that I don’t have as many pretty fabric photos to show you as usual though. 😦
My first piece of fabric to show you, is a purchase I’d ordered before I’d agreed to go on the fabric diet. This was ordered from another Facebook page I buy from, The Secret Stash Club. (This is a secret group, that you can only join by being invited by a member)
Now this next piece of fabric was bought this week despite the diet, BUT as it’s a panel, and it’s been bought to make a present for a specific person, then I’m claiming it doesn’t count as a fabric buy. 😉 The kitty looks very much like a cat I know, and I had to buy it while it was available. I picked this up from the Fabric and Haberdashery for sale… Facebook page (again a secret page, sorry).
Do you remember me mentioning last week that I’d arranged some fabric swaps? Well I sent my fabrics as arranged, and got these lovely fabrics in return:These geeky themed F8s were from a lovely lady on the Fabricaholics Anonymous Facebook page that I’ve mentioned in a previous post. These were in exchange for F8s of the circuit fabric I showed on my previous Sunday Stash post.
I also received this lovely kitty fabric as part of a swap. Isn’t it cute? This was from the lovely Kerry, who blogs at blog.pennydog.com, and was in exchange for a F8 of the goldfish fabric I had in my Sunday Stash post two weeks ago. Here’s a close up of the kitties:
Sorry the focus isn’t great, but I hope you can make them out ok. The fabric is designed by Kerry, and I think it’s a great design. 🙂
Well, that’s it for this weeks stash post. If I manage to stick to my fabric diet, next weeks post will be shorter still!
I will get back to you all soon with details about the pressies I made. – They’re a travel sewing wallet and a table topper.
