Sunday Stash (fabric overload)

So, living in a country without a modern fabric shop can be both good and bad. On one hand, I am not constantly tempted from sensory overload of rows and rows of glorious bolts of fabric. But on the other hand, when I do "go" shopping (online), I tend to buy lots and lots at the same time. This probably happens about 3-4 times a year. Good thing I have a decent job;)

So here I am - I just received a sizeable box from Fat Quarter Shop, and two other packages "may" be on their way... And I will even admit - this isn't the full content of that first arrival - it's only what I felt like carrying home from work on Friday. Good thing my husband doesn't read my blog;)

Cute - two prints from Bake Sale and one from Noteworthy:

Sweet: a variety from Bespoken, Bijoux, Geekly Chik, Les Amis and Heaven&Helsinki

Fresh: a duo from Avalon and Happy Go Lucky

Classy: two muted prints from Tw3ntyThr3e and a geometrical black from Comma

Just because: really wanted to get my hands on some Simply Style ASAP and this is all that was out. Will have to conquer the Y-seam soon! SimplyStyle

I am sharing my shopping overload at:

Now - on to see what others are buying - maybe they've got something I'm missing...


  1. Same for me, well, apart from the decent job. ;)

    Great, varied additions.

  2. A beautiful selection of fabrics! Have fun playing

  3. Oh my! Your stash is superb! LOVE your selection!!!
    I was wondering...when you order online, do you have to pay import taxes?

  4. Oh lovely! I love that blue and purple striped print. I'm so tempted to buy some of those hexie's but I've not worked with Y seams before, I'll have to look around for a tutorial! I'm glad my husband doesn't read my blog either! ;)

  5. You are certainly going to have some fun. I love ordering fabrics on line. I've been surfing and drooling over lately and it could be dangerous for my pocketbook!

  6. Lovely fabrics. I have to try the precut hexies! We have Shops, but it 's far too expensive, so i know what you mean when you Order online ;-)

  7. Ooh, great stashing! I am waiting for a couple of fabric parcels too - like you, I always buy a lot when I shop online (gotta fill that envelope to maximise postage!).

  8. Good stash building, and i'm sure you'll use it all someday, maybe! :o)

  9. Great selection. I too do my shopping online. I just love to see the postman arriving with my latest delivery.

  10. I love your style! There isn't a single print here that I wouldn't want in my stash. Your lucky you don't live in the UK or I'd be stash raiding in the middle of the night!

  11. I am trying very hard to not go to online fabric shops for the next while. I'm dangerous once I get there! You've made some lovely choices though - the 'sweet' bundle is my favourite :)

  12. Wonderful, can't wait to see what else you got.

  13. I tend to buy online too Marit and making the most of international postage charges. You have a little bit of everything here.
