Sunday Stash

As sewers, we have an inbuilt obsession with fabric. That was probably evident from last weeks post and the amount of fabric I actually own. It is quite ridiculous actually. I was musing with OH last night about it and said "Remember when I just had a little unit in the living room and that was all the fabric I had?". I'm not quite sure how I got from that to THIS. I guess buying fabric quicker than I can sew with it would be the answer I'm looking for.

Back then, my fabric stash consisted mainly of remnants from Dunelm Mill (through in a mix bag of dress fabrics that I had bought from a selling community on Livejournal). I wasn't really aware of designer fabric back then until this fabric came to my attention:


Alexander Henry Tattoo.

I adore this fabric even to this day. After discovering it I toyed with the idea of buying some but I just couldn't justify the expense. After about a year of deliberating on it I finally bit the bullet and bought some. *Ahem* 6 yards in fact. My intention was to make a dress with it which I still haven't done. But one day I will get round to it. I can just visualise me prancing around in my gorgeous Tattoo fabric and how happy I will be when I finally do it. I even have the pattern for the dress and everything.

One day.

I didn't get any sewing done today as I am going out for dinner for a work colleague's birthday tonight so I spent the day baking and decorating her a cake. I can't wait to eat this!
