Fabric Conquest & Stash Share
Talk about a popular new fabric line! Have you tried getting your hands on Sarah Jane's Wee Wander yet?? It was just released this past week, but it took me three shops and four days of online scouring to secure the yardage needed for the project I've planned (one of The Library Project QAL projects that I just chose, so yeah me for staying on task!). As of this morning, though, I'm happily switching from online stalking to mailbox stalking. I will literally be holding my breath and hopping back and forth from foot to foot awaiting the mailman this week because I am that excited to get started! (And yes, "literally" because apparently literally now means both literally AND figuratively; for you English junkies out there like myself, doesn't that just blow your mind that the word means both its synonym AND antonym?!).
Ok, now on to some fabric I already have in my possession. Here are my entries for the two most recent Stash Shares of Alyssa's over at Pile O'Fabric. (Please excuse the repeats of browns in some of my shares lately - I don't own much, I rarely use it, and I probably won't be adding a whole lot more any time soon ; )
This scheme doesn't excite me...

But this one - despite being built entirerly around not favorite colors of mine - actually really interests me. I like the play of the brights in the chocolate and mustard to make it all pop a bit more!

I'm off to tackle pulling fabric and jumping into the bee blocks for my Stash Bee hive. I'll post those when they're done! I should also have a killer photo of purples to share soon - I *may* have gone a little crazy prepping my selections for the Radiant Orchid Challenge. Let's just say that purple is going to have to figure heavily into a lot of projects this year for me to put a dent in the hue once it all arrives. How about you - have you hopped on the purple bandwagon yet??
I love purples especially! Don't have very many good ones in my stash. Any recommendations?
I went a little crazy at Pink Chalk Fabrics... started with sale prints and then got carried away! Plus I joined the Pink Castle Studios Stash Stack Club and this month was purple - I'll have some lovely photos up over the next week. With the new Radiant Orchid Pantone color of the year, we should see lots and lots of new purple prints in 2014 : D
Do live the wee wander prints too especially the blues. It will make a beautiful quilt :)
I can't wait to show them to you next time you're up! And since they're for the birthday bunk bed, they'll be all done when you're here at Easter for sure : )
love purple, always have so i am stoked for the challenge. still had to buy more lol any excuse for fabric i say. Wee wanderer is awesome, trying hard to resist but i love the colors and horse
I have to admit that Wee Wander isn't something I'd normally buy if it was just for stash building, but having two little girls with a new bunk bed on the way was my very good excuse ; ) I look forward to seeing your challenge piece!
Purple doesn't like me very much. But I sure admire all the orchid in everyone else's stash!
That's ok, Lorna - we purple people still have eleven more months to convert you ; )
