don't cry for me

old school amy butler

in case anyone was getting worried that i might be running low on fabric after my little giveaway, let me reassure you that there has been some major stash enhancement going on over here for the past few weeks. i don't know what has come over me, maybe it's been the heat, maybe it's not having bought any for a few months due to our crappy dollar, maybe it's the little paypal balance just sitting there taunting me but i have well and truly been on a fabric binge. there was a shipment from z & s, plus goodies from several etsy sellers (the above old school amy butler included), an order placed with reprodepot, a trip to darn cheap fabrics and then yesterday i had the pleasure of spending a good three hours or so in the company of some extremely lovely ladies at my favouritest of fabric stores, amitie. there was chatting, sewing, shopping and oh so much browsing and coveting. i limited myself to this:

oh, amitie...

plus twenty of the little 1/8th squares they sell (i just love digging through those bins of little fabric bundles). and then, yes, then i came home and ordered another couple of half yards of the kei honeycomb in grey and aqua from matatabi after falling in love with it in a quilt displayed at amitie (they were sold out). it's shameful, really. shameful. i am ashamed. now i'm just going to go roll around in my new fabric and wait eagerly for the postman to arrive tomorrow.


  1. It was great to meet you last night! And you know I'd been eyeballing that purple fabric you bought all night and this post just sold it to me! I think it need it!


  2. mmmm...nice collection! makes me want to go shopping too, but damn! that Aussie $ is a bit sad :(

    The purple fabric is doing it for me too!

  3. lovely collection - the one with the sweet animal print is precious!

    you might be ashamed but at least you have good taste ;)

  5. First time commenting. Lately I am just hording the fabric too. But nothing comes out of it. I need to stop too and be productive, but it is so much nicer to just admire piles of it. :)Love your selection and can't wait to see what you will make.


I love to hear your thoughts, thanks so much for taking the time to comment! If you have a question to ask, I will answer it here (and by email as well, if I can track down your email address). I would love to reply to every single comment but until Blogger makes it easier to reply by email, please know that I am so happy you stopped by : )
