It's been a while since I took part in Tam's stash sharing party. Maybe the guilt of fabric shopping has been getting to me. Maybe only a bit, it hasn't stopped me getting excited and NEEDING new stuff.
I know materialism is a hideous bi-product of our modern culture, it's the driving force behind lazy folk that don't want to work, but want to consume. Part of the celebrity envy of the Western world. But can I NOT include fabric shopping in there? It's not a fancy designer handbag or pair of shoes. It's not a watch covered in diamonds. In theory I can sew the fabric together to make useful things. Clothes (ok, I can't, but someone could), bags, and (above all) quilts.
And how gorgeous would this stack be sewn up into a quilt for a little person? (yes, I am obsessed with babies at the minute - I've got pregnant friends coming out of my ears). I'm not so keen on the orange and browns, but someone will sew that together and I'll see it and then start drooling. Happens all the time when I think I don't much like a colour combo.
This is Willow by Alexander Henry, bought from FabricWorm. And only bought because I had a 10% off coupon. I am so easily bought.
