** I am having massive internet problems at the moment, so I apologize if I’m a little quiet at leaving comments over on any of your blogs… it’s not by choice!
** Hopefully I will have it all resolved this week & will be going with a new provider!
** I have been making yet more pouches (surprise surprise!)… I’m sure you’re all sick of seeing them by now but this is the latest attempt…
|Lining & magnetic clasp|
** This time I wanted to try something new & make up a pattern with rounded corners, a flap & a magnetic clasp…
** … at first I hated how it turned out, but now it has grown on me. It will be a really good size to carry around teabags for a tea-a-holic, or perhaps a pencil case…
** I know exactly who it’ll be going to, but that would be telling 😉
** I have been having a massive clean up of my sewing area & have decided that it’s time for a massive destash….
** I have a huge amount of fabric which I bought when I first started sewing. I bought it all on sale not because I loved it, but because it was cheap & I had no stash…
… now I have a large(ish) stash it is time to accept that I really will not use this fabric. It’s not that it’s not nice, it’s just not me! Most of it I have kept a fat quarter of, but do not need to keep a whole metre which was the minimum cut!
** So here is a photo of some of the nearly 50 fat quarters that I have to destash.
If you see anything of interest to you please make me an offer…
I’m open to swaps, or arrangements where you pay the postage etc… (I have paypal facilities through my shop)
|if you want me to email you a larger photo of any of it please quote the lot # and I will…
All lots are a minimum of 3 fat quarters – in some cases a half yard & 2 fat quarters…
** Also please be aware that as part of my destash effort I am going to be starting a week of giveaways for my followers starting this Friday.
(It will be for my followers only though – because you guys rock & I really appreciate the support you give me!)
** More will be revealed later in the week!
** I have just discovered the world of sewing supplies on etsy
** It is bad for me!
** Lets just say that’s part of the reason for the destash… – I need to clear some room lol…
** But now that I have ordered what I “needed” (like ahem 48 zips in a rainbow of colours & sizes for making more purses – oh brother!) I have put a self-enforced ban on browsing etsy!!
** Because I have NO self control – it is best not to look!
** At least it will be an exciting mail month 😉
** Neil has taken the rest of the week off, so I am looking forward to some quality family time before he next goes away!
** Linking up today with Fabric Tuesday
** Right… back to sewing…
