Well hello there, it’s been awhile! I am back…the sewing room is still in progress and I will show it to you when it’s done, but it is set up enough to start sewing again. I made a little curtain for our bathroom today, not worth blogging about but it was a good way to jump back in. I am hoping to get my next project cut out tonight!
I wanted to give an update on my stashbusting efforts…let’s start with the good 🙂 Since I started I have made 17 garments, all from stash fabric. Not too shabby! There is still a lot left though, as I discovered while I was packing for our move.
I originally said I wouldn’t buy any more patterns, but after re-thinking that I have bought a few. They don’t take up much room, I enjoy buying them, and they help me bust that stash so I figure it’s OK. As Lladybird Lauren would say- sorry not sorry.
Isn’t it yummy?? This is a Thakoon silk crepe de chine, I have a dress imagined in my head but haven’t gone too far down the road with it as I have a lot of fall projects I want to get done first.
After we were all moved and I wasn’t able to sew, I started browsing some fabric on line….dangerous territory!! I saw this Alexander Henry fabric and fell in love…I imagined making a little skater dress with a fitted bodice (Elisalex perhaps?) and a simple gathered skirt.
Then, Megan Nielsen popped up in my Bloglovin’ feed selling some of this…
I am a sucker for all things Megan Nielsen, and that stuff was paid for and on a plane from Australia faster than you can say “bad stashbuster!!”.
And finally, after some taunting from Kollabora on Twitter this Marc Jacobs plaid was ordered from Mood, and of course it will be made into an Archer when it arrives….
So I have to ask for some forgiveness, and promise that I am back on board with my challenge! I have lots of stash projects planned for fall, and 3 more months to go with my stashbusting pledge.
It is 2 yards of quilting weight, Alexander Henry fabric, brand new, unwashed…just leave a comment
telling me that you forgive me telling me what you might make with it, and I will pick a winner with one of those random number picker thingys. The giveaway is open to anyone, anywhere and will close on Wednesday, October 2nd at 10pm Pacific time. Good luck!!
