Woman gone crazy!

I have a confession to make, I'm addicted to fabric. I went a wee bit crazy at the show and purchased all these lovelies with no project in mind other than the need to bring them home with me and have them in my stash. Fee will even tell you that I had to borrow some money just to get one bundle.
Left to Right: Boutique, City Weekend, Hope
Front: Flower Sugar
but I didn't stop there, I bought yummy jelly rolls too
Lily and Will, Bliss (multiplied by two, yes I have 4 in total)
and these two beauties
Natalie Bird's new book - A Thankful Heart &
Anni Downs' new book - In the Life of a Bag
Now to start planning where and when I'll use all my pretties! Any Suggestions????

Next post I'll show you the charming accommodation we stayed at for one of those nights away and some of the sights we experienced in Sydney!

Hey, why not get it now? Better than kicking yourself later, thinking that you should have bought it at the show :)

I love all your beautiful purchases. Looks like you had a great time with all the extras thrown in - evacuations. questionable hotel rooms! Nothing better than surrounding oneself with beautiful fabrics!
Back to reality and everyday chores.

I love fabric, even though I can't sew!! Shameful, I know!! Thank you for the visit, and good luck in the giveaway!!

Linda said...

Such gorgeous buys, I's love to see some of the pages from Natalie's book.

Oh Jo - you've got some of the Oliver + S City Weekend! I'm so jealous - and can totally understand your addiction. I was in Spotlight last week and bought silly amounts of fabric - because you never know if you'll see them again!

Leanne said...

Hi Jo,
It looks like you all had a great time away. Those new books look lovely, what is Natalie's like? I love her designs.

Leanne said...
