Sunday Stash #15

Good morning and Happy Easter to you. I hope you have some lovely plans for your day today. I think mine will be a quiet one, and that's okay by me. So this week's Sunday stash I have been very excited to share. I waffled on buying this fabric since the day it came out. Should I? What would I make with it? But everyone's buying some. Wait, maybe I don't need it. WHAT? Scratch that. Of course I need it. I am a collector. So here it is, a carefully selected few pieces.
 Sara Jane's Wee Wander! I looked at it on line so much and I really loved the pink colorways but I know I am not really able to use a lot of pink. I have grandsons and also, many of the folks I have sewn baby quilts for in recent years are having boys too. This colorway can be for boys or girls with the right additions to it.
 The illustrations on this are just fantastic. I think each of Sara Jane's lines is better than the last one.
 The firefly in a jar is my favorite. What kid never did this? It brings me back to summers growing up.
And this one reminds me of a tree in the park where I grew up. My sisters and I spent many hours playing in that tree. We called it the monkey tree and it was the best climbing tree ever.
 This one was the hardest to find. The horses print in every colorway is sold out or on reorder at many of the shops I frequent on line. I bought all my pieces from Hawthorne Threads which is usually my go to fabric source. I really wanted the blue colorway of this. I felt that it was very necessary to the collection, but I couldn't find it. Then, at Lark Cottons I found this. So I grabbed it. This was my first ever order from Lark  Cottons, but it won't be my last.
The service was so fast, I had this in my hands 3 days before the rest, and Hawthorne Threads is pretty quick when it comes to shipping. But what I want you to see is the edge. This baby is pinked so there is no raveling. I have never seen that before, but with the pinking blade on a rotary cutter, easy peasy. GENIUS!!!
Just a side note, I really wanted to see this fabric before I bought it, but my LQS did not have it. I asked, and they said they had ordered it, but they didn't know what prints had been ordered or when it would come in. I checked back weekly for 3-4 weeks and finally gave up and bought on line. I try to support my LQS whenever I can, but many times they disappoint with what they choose to carry. I did not want to miss out on this one. And just so you know, it is so soft! I am going to love sewing this up. Got an idea already. Well, enough rambling. Have a great Sunday and I am linking up with Molli Sparkles for Sunday Stash.http://www.mollisparkles.com

  3. Oooh, yum! I like the fireflies in the jar too, though I will say I never had the privilege of catching them when I was a kid. My first time seeing one in person was when I was twenty-five, and even then, it was super awesome and cool. I felt like a little kid. :)
