Sunday Stash - Christmas Additions

December saw a lot of additions to my fabric stash, which perhaps explains why it's taken so long to showcase the lovelies I was lucky enough to receive for Christmas. My mom's way of doing Christmas is an awful lot like a wedding registry in that we all submit lists of things that we would love to receive, which are then distributed across the family. Of course everyone regularly goes off list, but given that I'm the only one in the family who gives a hoot about fabric this system is the perfect way to ensure I get a couple little fabric beauties for Christmas.

nine beautiful half yards of fabric and a new ruler
I knew that I'd be getting fabric from my momma for Christmas right about when a piece of squishy mail arrived addressed to her. Let me tell you, it was hard to not peak at the name of the sender to see which shop it had come from so I could figure out what, exactly, I would be getting ahead of time. I learned my lessons about snooping as a kid, though. I like Christmas morning to be a surprise. (Although Bunny gets an out on that - we each choose a main present together.)

My mom kind of knocked it out of the park with this gift. I don't know about you, but I can't think of anything much better than a half-yard bundle of the Corsage line from Alison Glass's sun prints. Yeah I'm spoiled, spoiled rotten. Especially since she snuck in an Olfa 24 x 6 ruler.

such saturated colours
Pretty much everything about these fabrics is wonderful. The colours range from lovely and muted to rich and super saturated (almost neon).

pinks and purples!

and lovely soft colours
These will probably be the last stash additions for awhile. My next few purchases are going to need to be backing and batting fabric, and I already have everything but the backgrounds for my next two projects on hand. So I'll have to settle for petting these pretties. Do you think Bunny would notice if I snuggled them in bed? They'd get wrinkled, so I won't. But I want to.

  1. Yay for your mom! Personally I would rather get nothing than some random gift which doesn't suit my needs, so generally I just buy for kids--and my husband-- and tell everyone else to do the same.

  2. Oh, I'm so jealous! I would love this bundle. This is definitely my favorite from Alison Glass. They are so pretty, and I love the colors. Hooray for you! I'm sure you'll love them well. :)

  3. Lovely! Those tonal prints from the line are so versatile : )

  4. I am so in love with allison glass fabrics at the moment. They work in so many ways!!

  5. Isn't that fabric gorgeous?! Luck you! I love all the little bits and pieces tucked away in that print, a pair of scissors or a bunny or whatever.
