Sunday Stash #73

A big thank you to Kristy from Quiet Play for hosting a Sketchy Sunday Stash last week. Next week Sunday Stash will be hosted by Amanda of What the Bobbin?

The most popular Stash visited last week was Gina from Party of Eight: Our Story who profiled the latest Heather Ross' gorgeous Briar Rose collection.

Last Monday night I had dinner with my lovely friend Marieka from Bespoke Bites. She was up in Lismore for a 2 day conference and so we felt very special having a night off, sans children, to catch up. Marieka and I have been friends since 2008 when we both moved to Tumut. We live about 200Km (130 miles) away from each other now. We both know the lifestyle of being married to Civil Engineers and having to move towns often for new projects.

She had a little fabric offering for me  - extra wide Essex linen/cotton blend in Natural. This is beautiful to work with on Zakka projects.

And another linen fabric which actually feels like linen. I wonder if it will sew and crush like linen. 

Recently I bought a couple of Denyse Schmidt prints that were in the $4 per/m discount section at Spotlight .

This for backing. I love orange.

This for binding.

Now it's your turn to "flash your stash". (Borrowed that hilarious phrase from Kristy's post last week!)

You can share
  • newly purchased fabric
  • precious fabric that has been in your stash for a while
  • op-shop (thrifted) fabric finds
  • swap triumphs
  • give-away wins
  • books, magazines
  • patterns
  • rulers
  • threads and other sewing notions.
  • fabric stamps.
Please also feel free to link up the place of purchase and even a price. I am all for supporting small businesses on Etsy and Facebook as well as Local Quilt Stores - no reason why the big retailers should pocket all our cash. 

You can also share a post about some fabric that has been in your stash, what you have made with it or plan to make with it, if you wish.


  1. It's so nice to catch up with good but faraway friends irl. How wonderful you had the chance. Great fabirc finds, too. :)

  2. Oooh, that orange is lovely, lovely!

  3. I'm waiting for my Essex linen to arrive, I'm going to use it on my Patchwork, Please! Embroidery Pouch. I also spent most of my birthday money on some DS prints! It's hopefully going to be a good stash post next week! :-)
