don't cry for me
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:
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.
