Addicted to Material

So I took 'stock' of the material I have recently added to my's been a material fest this past month or so! I now need to do something with it!

So I bought the following at Duxford Quilting Show:

 You can't quite tell, but the gold, silver and blue are glittery and are to finish some mug mats

 This is a little kit to try out some EPP (because I don't have enough to do)

This material will be for a lap quilt or similar

I also decided it was time to make myself an Advent Calendar - I've been on the lookout for one I love for a while and this won me over!

In addition to this, big sister sent me a parcel of goodies to cheer me up as I worked my way through A LOT of marking (almost 200 exam papers all in in the end)

The material is left over from a quilt she is making me; I will probably make some nice cushions with it.

There is even more in my stash, but I have blogged about it before! On the brightside, most of the stash has set projects. On the downside, most projects will need some more material to finish them off.

Ah well!


  1. Goodluck with the epp. .... I love it .... Nice shopping......

  2. You have plenty of lovely fabric there to keep you busy for sometime. I look forward to seeing what you use it for.

  3. A little fabric stash never hurt anyone ;) I am looking forward to seeing how you make an Advent calendar!

  4. Great stash , some lovely items will soon be in the making .Have a great day.

  5. A good stash gives you plenty of choice!

  6. hehe you're not the only one addicted to fabric...I love having enough that if I have an impulse thought I can choose from my pile rather than having to wait to buy some. A thoughtful gift from your sister - it looks like you deserved it after all that marking!

  7. Great collection of colours, not so great collection of exam papers to mark, good luck :)

  8. A material fest, oh my, how I love that. Enjoy all your fabrics and other stash.
