And it's not every day that you get an envelope stuffed FULL of her own offcuts from her newest line.
Good fortune indeed! (This isn't all of it. This is a section of it AFTER I sorted it into sizes and solids vs prints). Isn't she a generous lady?! How absolutely freaking gorgeous of her!
I rolled in it.
I poured it over myself because I was so excited about a) fabric from Kate Spain herself and b) actually talking to Danny in real life (on Skype) and I really really wanted to brag... (It was so much fun. We waved fabric and quilts at our computers/each other and talked over the top of one another ten to the dozen).
I also bowed to peer pressure this week. There was a coupon from our big craft store in the mail - spend $100 and get $40 off. Now I need to spend $100 at Spotlight like I need a hole in the head. But my Facebook group were discussing how they spent theirs, so I had to go and look...
Here we have:
- some marked down shiny Mettler threads
- a pinking rotary cutter and spare blades
- a ROTARY rotary cutter (it cuts circles, like a compass draws them) and spare blades
- silicone spray and fixative spray (not shown as not terribly thrilling and I had actually miraculously put them away - mostly I just leave stuff out in case I need it)
- A Field Guide to Fabric Design
- Modern Blocks
- and keyboard emoticon/shortcut key fabric which I got elsewhere but hey, I'm showing off.
Unfortunately, the fabric collection is out of control. There is not much more room left. And unlike you stay-at-home-mums who have nothing to do but pat a baby once or twice a day (and possibly feed it, I'm a bit fuzzy on the details but it sounds like a piece of cake)
So I'm calling a moratorium ("Again?" "Heard that one before." "How long did the last one last? Two weeks?") on fabric buying BETWEEN QuiltWest and Sewing Summit in October. (Except for Kate Spain and Heather Ross fabrics, naturally). :)
