the mailman has been good to me lately. yep....it's time for some fabric goodness on the blog. i tried to contain myself...really i did, but i could not resist showing you all some of my new fabric stash. i don't know how i'm going to cut into all of this - it's just all so lovely and inspiring! i just like to pet it and look at it sitting on my shelf...lol. and let me tell you all the hype about summersville does not dissapoint - lovely! i can't wait to use this stuff! when i saw that my sponsor fabricworm
got their stock in i literally dropped everything and placed a big order of some of my wish list fabrics.
|1) summersville seafoam 2) metro floral scandi orange zest 3) avenue seafoam all from summersville by lucie summers |
i had been coveting summersville since i first caught a glimpse of it and i also knew i had to get my hands onto some of the addicting chevron cottons from riley blake. the colors just make me happy. so awesome! one thing to note for all of you who haven't ordered any of the chevrons yet the chevrons do not run selvage to selvage. this may affect your design if you make clothing out of this.
when i order my fabrics i make copious amounts of wish lists on paper, at fabric shops online etc and then i save my money like a hoarder. i don't order fabric very often so when i do i order i have to choose carefully and plan in advance. i don't have a large budget for fabrics so i try to use as much as i can before i order more. one day i hope to be able to order fabrics regularly but for now i gotta be thrifty. most of these fabrics are going to be used to make items i will be selling in the shop and at a crafts fair this summer.
i'm just drooling over these tones of peach, pink and coral all stacked together. they came in the package from fabricworm
stacked like this and i literally drooled when i opened it! FAHHHBULOUS!!! wowsa! i love it when stuff i order ends ups looking just as wonderful as i imagined it to! happy dancing over here :P
i also couldn't resist ordering some yardage of pezzy print after picking up a charm pack of it the other month. i'm in love with this print and can easily see it being a staple in my fabric stash. if you head over to fabricworm

the two lovely floral prints below are for me. i'm going to be doing some selfish sewing and these prints are going to be for momma :) i figured it was about time i made something for myself again. the last time i sewed something for me it was the summer i think.

i also chose some of the lovely florals from this line as well. amy butler prints are staples in my fabric stash and i use them with everything. i'm a color lover so the burst of happiness they infuse into my projects always makes me smile.
