More Fabric Destashing! and New Needlekeep

Whilst creating this new little needle keep

I kept thinking about all the fabric that still needed
to be sorted so I could let another lot leave my
decided to create 4 more fabric packs using these gorgeous
pastel Spring prints of roses, pansies, dots
and paisley.

 These images give you an idea of the quality of these cottons -
I'm sure Robyn Pandolph by Moda
is one brand name that many of you may know!

I have had these fabrics in my stash now
for at least 12 years or more

 and they are still as beautiful as ever, however,
there is a limit to just how much one can 
use (I'm slowly discovering!!! lol!).

Just thinking how well co-ordinated these
fabrics really are 

and how beautifully they would look in a crazy quilt
or any project that would lend itself
to this range of soft colors! 

I'm not sure that I will ever get over my fabric hoarding passion
but at least I have the choice to let others use some of it too!

 I remember well purchasing this one
and thinking how beautiful the background
was woven behind the pink roses in a duck egg blue shade.
It is in fact a Japanese fabric
this one also with
the pretty pansy arrangement


with the pansies and leaves being outlined in gold.
Any way I still have 3 packs left in my 

Enjoy my friends! 
Treasure the days, the hours and even more, the moments!
I'll be back soon!

  15. aloha Suzy, the needle case is really a fab. place to store sewing supplies. I do love it. i want one!

  16. what a really beautiful needlekeep and those floral fabrics are to die for-gorgeous!!

  17. What a beautiful collection you uncovered in your stash. Yes - makes for a beautiful quilt.

    Happy sewing!

  18. I know how this addiction to fabric can take over too Suzy :)))) I have much more than I will ever use, but always find a pattern I can't resist. I find my taste stays much the same though, as florals and paisleys are always the theme. I have very few plaids or solids in my stash.
    I really love your beautiful needlebook. It is a gorgeous work of art. Needlebooks are on my list to make for my MIL and daughters.
    I can only imagine how gorgeous your roses must be again this time of year. Looking out over your lovely property must give you so much joy. It is a heaven on earth!
    I hope you are well and enjoying this time when fall will soon be upon you. I'm sure it's as beautiful in the fall as well.
    much love...
