Sunday Stash Report- Week 15 of 2011

I love Heather Ross! I love Heather Ross!  I finally own some of her fabrics. 

Around a year ago, I was randomly looking through photos.  I found Film in the Fridge.  She's nothing but amazing in my eyes.  I fell in love with a few of her quilts and then I saw the one called far far away 2 quilt and then I was introduced to Heather Ross.  Yep some amazing stuff she's got going on.  So why has it taken me an entire year to buy some of her fabric?  Becuase I can't seem to find it locally.  I finally broke down and purchased the above from fabricworm and more will be coming my way this next week from sew dearly loved

I suppose it makes my stash so much more complete. Just need a bit of Sherbet Pips and I'll be set for the year--with these numbers I sure hope so!
I was traveling again.  I went to a few stores which were lovely.  I just didn't find something that I NEEDED.  Instead I picked up a few yards of this and that to continue to build my stash.

No real progress on anything.  Doesn't help that my postage stamp quilt is out for the making and the love just isn't there.  Is it the weather or the constant traveling. . I'm not sure.  So to lift my spirits, I've joined another swap. I've breaking out some citrus colors, from my stash, for the new SpRiNg CiTRuS sURpRisE sWAp!!   Come over and look at the rules. . it's a great swap to start off with. I'll use some of the greens that I just purchased.

Oh I might have bought some HELLO KITTY!  Oh how FUN! I have no clue why I get hooked on things. But it's Hello Kitty the last few years.  Kitty Chan - as it is called in Japan.  I'm 34 (for another month) and I'm still into this stuff.  Is this good?

When I got back for my travels I had this months  fabric from Pink Chalk Fabrics was at my doorstep.  This month it's a mixture of fabrics is kinda dark but they are pretty solids.  Yep, my automatic happiness to arrive in my mailbox every month. Lovely stash builders. Especially when it's colors I don't automatically pick up. . these are the best because they are the best to contract what I have in my stash.  Balancing color is one thing that I'm learning.  Le'sigh.

So the damage is:

  1. OOOh, fabric! I finally got some Heather Ross fabric too. Don't really know what took me so long. I'm not big online shopper but we didn't have any at my local quilt shops so I had to do it :)

  2. I'm 33 and I still love my Marvin the Martian, and smurfs, and potato heads, and skittles. :-)

    My quilting weekend went to mowing my yard and planting.

    Yeahhhhhhhhhh, I'm not into Heather Ross, but you should know that Miss Bestie! ha ha ha!

  3. My daughter loves Hello Kitty, that is nice fabric. I've been looking and that is the cutest I've seen.
