Recently I've been trying to use up my existing stash - and have been doing quite well at this I think. But using up stash means that there are some holes available that need to be filled with new fabric. I've also rearranged (notice, I didn't say weeded out) my quilt and craft books and there appears to be a bit of space available there as well for some new volumes.
So, what's a girl to do? Well, shop, of course! But not at any fabric store. Oh no, I'm really loving going to the Goodwill store to pick up wool clothes and use the fabric in small projects. This is great, but a few weeks back I hit the motherlode! Yes, a great fabric and craft sale with all proceeds going to a good cause. I'm talking about the annual Ujamaa Grandmas fabric sale here in Calgary.
|Did I buy too much? This is a rhetorical question!|
|Some of the wool pieces I purchased.|
|Creative Circles kits at $.50 for my "collection". |
I even bought one I already have!
|Some of my fabric and pattern finds.|
|Batiks, fabric, patterns, anyone?|
|More books - great for design inspiration|
The Ujamaa Grandmas are a Stephen Lewis initiative and you can read more about their work here.
Now I just have to figure out where to put all these new purchases...
