I am so easily swayed with the possibility of nice things….over on Instagram Knotted Thread (knotted_thread) posted these amazing Infinity Scarfs made from the Cotton and Steel Double Gauze. It was definitely prints I had not purchased over the Christmas specials. Ok, ok I caved and I bought some.
The fabric is so soft and the colors so nice and bright. As it is getting cold here, I am sure myself and friends will appreciate a new scarf.
While looking through the new releases at Hawthorne Threads, I picked up these Etno prints as well:
- Contempo Pyramids in Ebony, Etno, Pat Bravo
- Sauvage Sky in Artic, Etno, Pat Bravo
- Shore remains in Trinkets, Etno, Pat Bravo
In my attempt of being good, I kept it to just these three.
Lastly, I have a quilt design I have wanted to do for a while, and I purchased the Neutral Bundle of Umbrella Prints last year that I think will be perfect. The Bundle came with a free FQ which was the Burgundy Ume print. So, I finally unpacked it, so I can start picking out some solids to go with it.

That’s my belated Sunday Stash…phew!! Linking up with Molli Sparkles for Sunday Stash.
Before Christmas, I was looking for thread that I could use to quilt my Rangers Station quilt. I am happy to report, I found it in Tula Pink’s Moonshine Aurifil boxes. Look, perfect matches. This quilt will also be my Marsala submission for the upcoming Pantone submission….I know, I am ahead of schedule on this one!!
I am not going to lie….knowing that I was going to go into Sew your Stash 2015, I did do some purchasing to end 2014 and take advantage of some of the sales.
The first one was to pick up these wonderful Oakshott cotton bundles.
Another one, that has arrived are these Half yards I picked out at Fat Quarter Shop.
Only two more purchases I am waiting on, which were paid for in 2014 and planned….Doe (full yards) and some but not all of the new Cotton and Steel prints. I should have the Doe next week to show, and I am so excited. For 2015, is there any fabric lines you can’t wait for?
