I don't have a fabric addiction...

I've had a few parcels of fabric-y goodness arrive this week. I might just add that I have been a *little* more responsible with my fabric purchasing of late (although I have just destashed via the Aussie Facebook destash group, which has pretty much already enabled a restash. Go figure?!?)

Anyhoo, on to the pretty pictures. I joined the Indian Summer Charm Swap run by Jenelle - and they are so gorgeous! I'm not sure what I'll do with these - but they'll make an awesome quilt when I work it out :o)


The fabulous Lizzy House has done several destash sales through her shop - but I've always been too slow (or not awake at the right time) to nab any. A month or so ago, she put up a few bundles of scraps from her personal stash and I actually managed to get one (yay!!) Lots of Lizzy House goodies, a few large pieces of really lovely Japanese prints, and poking out at the top a full FQ of one of Amy Butler's Wallflower prints from her Lotus collection - one of my all time fave prints, and I'd never actually seen it in this colour way. There may have been a bit of squealing and happy dancing involved ;o)


And finally, a little gem of an Aussie modern quilt shop on Ebay - Quiltopia. I've purchased quite a few fabrics from Ann, and I am so impressed with her shop (disclaimer - this is not a sponsored post, I just really like her stuff!). She stocks some fantastic prints - lots of which are really hard to find in Australia, and she posts stuff SUPER fast. I nabbed a full yard of the grey text print by Sweetwater (Sunkissed I think) - this is such a great print! And then half yards of the others (how awesome is that dressmaking fabric from Homespun Chic? no idea what I'll use if for, but I absolutely adore it!)



Hope everyone has a fab weekend (and that my own is a bit more chilled out) - I'll announce the giveaway winner later tonight :o)
