Wow, when you stack it all up like this, it looks like I might sort of have a problem.


Needless to say, Stash Up 2012 is complete. This is a lot of fabric, yeah. No, I don’t really have an excuse. (Except that I did get it all on sale, on clearance, with a coupon code, or a combination of two of the above, pinky swear.)

Yes, I feel totally stashed up, prepared for Christmas crafting and the year of sewing ahead of me!


This little pile to the right of the main “stash rainbow” is a couple of little scrap bags I picked up from Pink Castle Fabrics when they ran their 20% off bundles sale a couple of weeks ago. Best. Fabric. Purchase. Ever. These are WOF scraps ranging from about 3” to 8 or 9”, and every last piece is good stuff. No uglies. I’m planning a scrap vomit quilt for early 2013, so even uglies would have been fine by me. But no, I got some FMF 2012, a piece of 1001 Peeps, some Aneela Hoey, some Lori Holt, Pezzy Dots, and that GORGEOUS piece of Anthology Maya right in the middle. (Have I mentioned that I immediately hit Etsy and found more yardage of several prints from this line and I have 4.25 yards of that still coming?) Scrap bags. Do it NOW.


And now I feel like I have my favorites from every line of fabric that came out this year. Seems it was an extraordinarily good year for fabric, and there has been so much to pick from that I haven’t been able to catch everything that I wanted. I got some Madrona Road (though not that Memoir print CURSES), Field Study, (more) Seaside, Hope Valley, and was lucky to find a few Pearl Bracelet prints on Etsy.

Whew. Forget ‘splaining. Somebody has some sewing to do.
