Stash with a purpose!

I'm not a fan of buying fabric without a specific purpose, it makes me feel a bit uncomfortable and extravagant - do you agree?

All of the fabric which I bought this weekend after the Raystitch class has a project which it's intended for, and this made me feel less guilty about my purchases. That, and the 15% discount for having gone to a class :D

I bought lots of lovely soft fabrics to make scarves for Christmas presents for the ladies of the family - each print has got a solid to match, except for the Field Study Co-ordinates, which Annie is helping me match (thank you Nathalie!)

I also bought some cute Echino to make a key holder (which I've seen someone make, but can't remember for the life of me who!) to help solve the frequent "Where have you put my keys!" 'debate' (!) every morning:

I also bought some Melody Miller to make a scarf for my sister in law, tape ribbon for my bestie's apron and a mini charm pack of Marmalade that just jumped into my basket... (I do have a plan for these, honest!)

 I have no excuse for not getting on with things now!


  1. You did make the most of that 15% discount and I can't say I blame you with such lovely fabrics up for grabs!

    I used the same Echino fabric in purple for a coin/key tidy for my son, so obviously great minds think alike :)

  2. Ohh pretty pretty fabrics! I have no problem in buying fabrics without a project in mind ;-)

  3. I need to STOP buying fabric with no project in mind... it's a disease you know!


Please let me know what you think, I <3 comments!
