Sunday Stash: TEXT Me a Charm Swap and Global Scrap Bee (excuses!)

After a long time, I have bought some new fabrics. My official excuse is I needed some particular fabric for two projects I am following. But any excuse is good for buying fabric, isn't it?! So here's what I've bought:



These two fabrics are for the TEXT Me a Charm Swap organised by Leona at Leona's Quilting AdventureThis swap is dedicated to swapping charm squares of text fabric and low volume fabrics. It's my first swap and I'm really looking forward to receiving my charms. I've been thinking about making a low volume quilt for a while now and my love for text fabric has grown with the Zakka Along 2.0:: Patchwork, Please. Zakka projects seem to want text fabrics!


These fabrics are part of the Global Scrap Bee. OK, you noticed, it's called scrap bee. So why am I buying new fabric? This month is Adrienne at Chezzetcook Modern Quilts' turn and she choose this fantastic set of colours for which I was missing the greys and the coral colour. So I really had to go and buy the fabrics I was missing (what a shame!).

While I was at it, of course, my eyes strayed on many pretty fabrics and a few other bits and pieces. In the end I also came home with this:



I know you understand me. I promise I will put them to good use!


I have a week spot for pink! Must be Ella's influence, her favourite colour in many shades.

Linking up with Stash Sunday hosted by Vera at Negligent Style, where I know there are many who understand me!

    1. Yes, it's an old ladder my neighbour wanted to throw away and I asked him if I could have it. I knew it would be useful for something!
