Fabric Frenzy for April
A great big thank you to quiltswissy for cleaning out her studio and gifting me with this Precious Poodle Piece.
In the interest of Karma, she has a love of Swiss mountain dogs and basset hounds, so if any of you have those fabrics to repurpose...
Now on to my lack of resolve, my accidental fabric purchases.
There is "no room at the Inn" (or fabric drawers) and yet, when Craftsy sent me notice of clearance I went, "just to look" And this is what arrived in my mailbox last week...
It held this:
I don't usually buy precuts. First of all, if they are all from one line of fabric, they are likely too matchy for me. Second of all, they are difficult (not impossible) to prewash.
At this point, let me make a plea for prewashing. It's not about running colors although that's valid.
It is ALL about the CHEMICALS in fabric manufacturing. You may not smell them like I do, you may not have skin irritation like my friend Robin does, but sew and press those unwashed pieces and all the chemicals are now flowing up to your brain. After a lifetime of that, you might find yourself sensitive too.
Anyway, there are some fabric lines I can't resist, and I have been eyeing hexie precuts for a year now. The low clearnce prices at Craftsy pushed me over the edge! I am pretty excited about all my purchases!!
All the possibilities!
