Sunday Stash Report - some additions

I have only one finish this week - a green carry bag that I blogged about earlier on in the week here. It was fully lined with pockets on the inside and out. I did a sort of crazy log pattern/crazy patch on one side and fussy cut some cute animal pictures and worked them into a nine patch on the other. The middle block was the pocket. I had all sorts of issues with the iron on interfacing but managed to get it done in the end. I used .88m of a metre

We spent the last couple of days in Rockhampton and I visited a quilt shop there I hadn't been to before - Needlework Cottage. I've heard of it, of course, but just never made it. I had extra time in Rocky these last few days so found it. I am collecting bike fabric for a special project and found 2 lovely prints there so I got .3m each. Originally I had ordered .25cm but the shop lady suggested .3cm as that was the repeat for both of them (and for most fabrics apparently... that or .6m)

I also found some lovely bright butterfly print that I plan to make a vest for a friend out of. He mentioned a few weeks ago that he would like a vest for Chrysalis (a Christian organisation that we both belong to. See here for more information) I got 1 m and hope that its enough. He's a pretty big bloke but I can always add more fabric) Actually I am thinking of sending him the fabric and he can get his mum or wife to do it since I don't have his measurements. That would get me out of it nicely :)

My final purchase was a lovely self patterned green fabric that I bought on the spur of the moment for borders on Going Green. I was going to leave it as was, (see my Wip Wednesday report for this past week)or else wait till I got home to see what fabric I had in my stash but when I saw this lovely fabric at a good price I bought it. I got 1.5m

  1. It is always fun to visit a new fabric shop. I'm visiting my parents soon and they have a new place not far from their home lined up for me one day. Love the bike fabric second from the top. Enjoy your sewing. Sandi

  2. Lovely fabrics! You've done a great job of stash busting this year.

  3. What a cool bag, and pretty fabrics. Your numbers for the year are looking good.

  4. I like your bike fabrics. Actually all your fabrics are pretty. Good stash numbers too.
