I've been shopping again...

I've been a very bad girl. But I can't help it!!! There's so much fabric that I want!!! I feel bad, but it's impossible to resist. Especially when it's on sale - I can't be held responsible when it's on sale.
 
So.  Do you want to see what I got??? :-D I'll give you an update since my last stash post...
 

I had to buy some more Comma because I'm making a quilt and NEEDED the extra. I promise! I couldn't make the quilt without it.
 






I grabbed some Sew Mama Sew, because it was right there as I was filling up my basket.  And I'll use it for my Handstitched quilt and I got colour with white/cream so it's totally usable in lots of projects...
 
 
 
I needed stuff from Spotlight and I couldn't resist these little owls.

 
 
So I got some coordinating solids...

 
 
I have a plan for them though!! That makes it fine, right?? Besides, check out the hot pink!! You love it, right, Audrey!!
 
I also got, well, all the fabric I used for my sewing machine cover - but it's been used (mostly) so it's not stash building.  And I got the fabric I needed for my Carpenters Wheel. But again! I used most of that.

I also had a little binge on the Fat Quarter Shop website and ended up with a few jelly rolls ...



... and a fat quarter pack of greens...

... and some Glimma - WHICH I love. And have wanted for ages. And it's selling out everywhere, so I really needed to get it now, while I still could. So I grabbed yardage of my favourites, and then grabbed a layer cake, so I could have all the colours!!! And then I threw in a jelly roll. I can't help it! I have an addiction!!!


This is my favourite fabirc. It's so delicate yet strong. LOVE.
 
And I have more jubilee sitting in my cart...
 
I signed up to do the Penny Patch over at Stitched in Colour, so I had to buy fabric for that, right??? It's basically using Rachel's version as inspiration, which I wouldn't describe as my normal colour scheme, but I think it's going to be so yummy when it's all together.
 
 
 
And I may have also picked up some cute random fabrics...







 
 

And I got my monthly stash packs (that's four sets- July, August, September and October)
(November's just got delivered... I'm not adding that to the tally, as it's not November yet, so it doesn't count!)

I also got my monthly Fat Quarter stashes (this is two sets, which equals four months worth, I just had them all shipped at once). They're only fat quarters, so it's not as much fabric as it looks like...


I haven't even listed the material I haven't bought yet. I need to get a big stash of solids for Phil's quilt. And I want to do a Swoon quilt (a normal sized one), but I don't know my colours (I'm tending towards blue and grey). And I need to get some white, or white adjacent to go with the Arkansas Traveller.

So I got lots of pretties and I have more coming.  And, ok, I can't eat this month, but who really needs food????????????

    1. Thanks, Lisa. I might admit to slipping into the sewing room just to touch the pretties :-) If only I could lock myself in there and do nothing but sew...

    1. Yeah, I think addiction, is more like it. You can tell because I'm trying to sneak fabric into my house, like it's drugs. Because if no-one sees, it didn't happen, right??

  6. I absolutely love the fabrics you've chosen for your Penny Patch project. What fabric lines are they from? I would love those as well. I've just really been into Aqua or turquoise and orange lately.
