Sunday Stash – Japan

Laurafabric2 Comments

I’ve just had almost two weeks in Japan for the school holidays with my mum… Lucky, lucky me. I loved Japan – I have so many stories and pictures but I will save those for another post.

Stash Sunday

I’m not much of a joiner when it comes to Stash Sunday. I really don’t need the encouragement to buy fabric. And I’ve been REALLY good recently… up until lately… (By the way, if you want to win a shopping voucher from the Fat Quarter Shop, check my previous post.) When Heather Ross’s reprint of Far Far Away was announced … Read More

Last week, I woke up to the sad news that US postage was increasing yet again. Ms QuiltJane wrote on Facebook: USPS international envelope will now be $US23.95 to Australia. This is like 2.4 yards of fabric being sucked up into shipping. Certainly depressing news for the fabric enthusiast. Based on a 7 yard parcel, the price of fabric per … Read More

After Mesa Verde and the guns excitement that was Cortez Colorado (not really guns excitement Mum, we just found all the ‘ammo, liquor and jewellery’ shops funny and very different to Utah), we slipped over the border into New Mexico, then to Arizona, then back to Utah for some more shooting… of the photographic kind. Monument Valley is famous for … Read More

Last week, two Fabulous Things happened.1. I hit 400 followers. 2. I got a parcel of fabric I’d ordered from Fabricworm. It was the best fabricporn ever, so I wrote a little poem. That’s how excited I got. Fabricworm is and has been one of my favourite shops since I started ordering online. No, they’re not a sponsor. (No, I’m … Read More

Do you piece for peace? Life has been so chaotic around here with Patches passing, new job, relationship issues and the sewing machine playing up (I swear I have bad sewing machine karma) that I’ve been cutting (fabric, not myself) and piecing… Sometimes, sewing mindless straight lines is good. Sometimes, concentrating on getting pieces in the right pattern and order … Read More
