New Yummy Fabric and What I Made With It


As you all know I've been a busy little worker bee making lots of new stock for the Limerick Craft & Design shop that will be opening in the next month or so. Over the past few days I've been making lots of new pot pincushions. Thankfully I had a load of pots already painted from before Christmas which saved me loads of time.

Last week I got tired of scrounging through my scraps box looking for pieces big enough to make stuff with so I treated myself to a bunch of new material. I went to the Limerick Quilt Centre and bought 21 fat quarters, at that I was seriously restraining myself. They have amazing fabric out there, and I'm told that people regularly tell the staff that they hate them(just because their stuff is so nice that there is no choice but to buy it). This trip marked a vast improvement on my last one, I only spent €63, whereas last year I spent €250 on my first visit to the shop. It should come with a health warning like those on boxes of fags, 'Hoarders beware; may cause heart palpitations, bankruptcy, and eventual madness'.

    1. Thanks!! Online shopping is the real danger, it's there all the time and it never closes

  2. They are so cute! I know what you mean when it comes to fabric. I keep telling myself I will use up everything I have before I buy any more. Of course this doesn't happen and I am amassing quite a collection!

    1. I think it's the curse of every crafts person to hoard stuff, I've been doing this for years and I still 'don't have enough'
