Why Fabricologist Anonymous??

Some cheeky person emailed me and asked 'why did you call your blog that?'.. well i thought a picture is worth a thousand words, soooo.... I have never said I didn't like fabric, and more importantly 1930's reproduction fabric.. so here is a pic....



of about 25% of my 30's stash.. I didn't realise I had so much to be honest, until i was looking for a bit I miscut.. and of course I DONT HAVE ANY of that bit left.. will look odd you know, a hexagon flower with one petal not on it.. ARGGGGH!!!!!! This part of the stash is bits I couldn't fit into the 45litre tub, its a large suitcase! Uh Oh! there must be 100 m's of fabric in this suitcase... enough for about 10 - 20 quilts!


I have been having a HUMUNGOUS clean out of my patterns, I tend to make one patch quilts or simple quilts and here I have 5000 or so it seems patterns.... mostly applique and to be honest, I dont have time to applique anymore.. too busy with hand piecing, and sewing on sequins.. I have had a few bids on the ones I have listed on ebay, so hopefully the pattern stash will decrease! And kits??? what was I thinking! I have that many BOM's to do, I'll be grey (ok greyer) before I get a chance to even look at them, so out they go too!
Till next time...

hi lissa

if you need a smidge of 30's repro to finish a hex, take a pic, and I will see if I have it.....

...my 30's keep breeding, I CANNOT seem to kill them off completely

Is all that fabric colour coded?? Most impressive.

Lissa Jane said...

Yep.. the stash is colour co-ordinated.. I should spend more itme sewing rather than making sure its in colour order!
